On FPF #179, journalist Will Porter returns to the show to discuss Syria. Allegations that Assad used chemical weapons have presented the hawks with an opportunity to push Trump deeper into the Syrian quagmire. Trump seems to be taking the bait, as he says he believes Assad carried out the attack.

Will breaks down Trump’s statement and explains the flaws in the president’s argument. Will helps debunk common lies about the Syrian Civil War and chemical weapons by dissecting Nikki Haley’s speech at the UN. Will and Kyle also discuss Tucker Carlson’s recent heroic monolog

Will is a freelance journalist who writes on Mid East Affairs and American Foreign Policy. His work has been published at AntiWar.com, The Libertarian Institute, The Daily Sheeple, and Consortium News.
