Pulitzer Prize winning journalist suggests that United States decision to launch cruise missile strikes on Syrian Government positions in April came despite warnings from US intelligence 


Via UBC News –  A new report from Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, Seymour Hersh, suggests that United States President Donald Trump’s decision to launch cruise missile strikes on Syrian Government positions in April came despite warnings from US intelligence and military officers that they had no evidence Syria had committed the sarin gas attack that it had been accused of. According to Hersh, one US officer remarked, “We know that there was no chemical attack… the Russians are furious. Claiming we have the real intel and know the truth… I guess it didn’t matter whether we elected Clinton or Trump.” Hersh’s report is based off interviews and reports he has done with US officials. He famously uncovered the My Lai Massacre, in which US soldiers committed widespread murder of Vietnamese civilians in the Vietnam War.
