A stunning update on Friday afternoon from the Associated Press said the Pentagon is investigating possible Russian participation in the Syrian regime’s chemical weapons attack.
These officials also supported the dire suspicion that nearby hospitals were attacked to cover up evidence of the WMD deployment:
The officials say Russia has failed to control the Syrian government’s use of chemical weapons.
They say a drone belonging either to Russia or Syria was seen hovering over the site of the chemical weapons attack Tuesday after it happened. The drone returned late in the day as citizens were going to a nearby hospital for treatment. Shortly afterward, officials say the hospital was bombed.
The officials say they believe the hospital attack may have been an effort to cover up evidence of the attack.
The officials weren’t authorized to speak publicly on the matter and demanded anonymity. They say they’re still reviewing evidence.
Philip Giraldi, former CIA officer and Director of the Council for the National Interest, says that “military and intelligence personnel,” “intimately familiar” with the intelligence, say that the narrative that Assad or Russia did it is a “sham,” instead endorsing the Russian narrative that Assad’s forces had bombed a storage facility. Giraldi’s intelligence sources are “astonished” about the government and media narrative and are considering going public out of concern over the danger of worse war there. Giraldi also observes that the Assad regime had no motive to do such a thing at this time.Text

Oh sure they were.
Lets use chemical weapons when we on the verge of victory just to rile up the moronic western world.
They used a Su-22 to drop chemical bombs, or was it a Su-24? Or maybe a Helicopter? So hard to keep track of the lies.

Why would they bomb a storage facility with chemical weapons?
Assad is winning the war so he decides to drop chemical weapons on a building to kill a bunch of innocent civilians to rile up the whole world.
Does that make any sense?
