No, really, I’m not making this up. Not only did Secretary of State Kerry says Youtube videos were crucial in his decision to declare war on Syria (because that’s what we’re doing) he made zero effort to link the gas attack to the Assad government. Might we not want to be sure of our facts this time before we launch the cruise missiles, especially considering the Iraq War was based on lies. It is certainly conceivable that one faction of the rebels launched the attack on another to bring the US into the war.
Truth is the first casualty of war.
He says he watched the videos on social media to decide Assad was guilty. No, really! This is your Secretary Of State!
That despite the UN inspectors not having finished, the US government’s assessment is “based in fact”. That the regime has the weapons and so the regime must be responsible. That the US government will be providing more information in the days ahead.
