Dr Postol's assessment of White House Intelligence on Nerve Gas Attack

Yesterday I made the following comment in 'Meet the new guy - same as the old guy':

"The demonisation narrative must avoid any mention of anything that counters its unquestionable ‘truth’…such as the University of Massachusetts (MIT) report authored by former UN weapons inspector Richard Lloyd, and Professor Theodore Postol, which exposed how the 2013 case against Assad was a fraudulent concoction designed to give a green light for western military operations. AKA a ‘false flag’ incident"

Today, we have the initial assessment of last week's chemical attack from the aforementioned MIT Scientist, Dr Theodore Postol, Professor Emeritus of Science, Technology, and National Security Policy, Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The full report includes photographs, data, and scientific analysis. This is the concluding paragraph:

"I stand ready to provide the country with any analysis and help that is within my power to supply. What I can say for sure herein is that what the country is now being told by the White House cannot be true and the fact that this information has been provided in this format raises the most serious questions about the handling of our national security"

I doubt that President Trump will be tweeting about this anytime soon, and I'll bet dollars to donuts that Sean Spicer will not be bringing it up in the White House Briefing room. Similarly, given the press are finally 'feeling the love' from their new Commander-in-Chief...they may not be rushing to break this news either.

So my advice, for what it's worth, is this: Make up your own mind or have it made up for you.
