Hagel: Israel did not tell him of its intelligence assessment that Syria used chemical weapons




CAIRO — U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel indicated on Wednesday that he was caught by surprise when Israeli officials publicly revealed their assessment that Syria has used chemical weapons in its civil war.

"They did not give me that assessment; I guess it was not complete,” Hagel said after several hours of meetings with senior Egyptian officials on the fourth stop of a week-long Mideast tour. “So I have not seen the specifics of it” or discussed it with Israeli officials.

He said he and Yaalon discussed the issue of Syria’s chemical weapons, but Hagel would not elaborate further.


How could the Defense Secretary have missed this? I even posted on the very topic yesterday as it was in the news. *See preceding post
