4/26/17 Theodore Postol on the White House’s false claims regarding the April 4th Syrian nerve agent attack

shb livestream black

Theodore Postol, Professor Emeritus of Science, Technology, and National Security Policy at MIT, discusses his critique of the White House Intelligence Report claiming that the Syrian government was responsible for a chemical weapons attack in Khan Shaykhun on April 4th. Postol debunks claims that photos of a metal tube inside a crater are evidence of a Syrian air attack that released sarin gas. A more plausible scenario is that a Russian air strike on an ammunition dump created a large explosion, dispersing toxic chemicals over a large area that could have caused the mass casualties seen on video.
