CNN Report: U.S. Military And Intelligence Intercepted Communications Involving Syrian Military And Chemical Experts



CNN: US intelligence intercepted communications between Syrian military and chemical experts

(CNN)The US military and intelligence community has intercepted communications featuring Syrian military and chemical experts talking about preparations for the sarin attack in Idlib last week, a senior US official tells CNN.

The intercepts were part of an immediate review of all intelligence in the hours after the attack to confirm responsibility for the use of chemical weapons in an attack in northwestern Syria, which killed at least 89 people. US officials have said that there is "no doubt" that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is responsible for the attack.

The US did not know prior to the attack it was going to happen, the official emphasized. The US scoops up such a large volume of communications intercepts in areas like Syria and Iraq, the material often is not processed unless there is a particular event that requires analysts to go back and look for supporting intelligence material.

We still have not conducted any kind of investigation into what happened. While it seems unlikely for reasons I've already mentioned here on this site, perhaps Syria was responsible.

Without so much as investigation I wondered how 10 countries would possibly sign onto a resolution condemning Syria. Based upon what has been presented I would have expected t10 countries to vote against it instead of 10 countries supporting it. Now we learn about these intercepted communications. They must have been extremely convincing. US intelligence has been wrong so often its hard to understand why anyone would trust it. If I were POTUS, I certainly wouldn't.

"We still have not conducted any kind of investigation into what happened. "

i.e. Reveal sources and methods now.

The intel agencies already conducted their investigation.

If the spooks told some of the congressmen, they still would not know anything. Some of them think you can tip Guam over.

Actually the skinny is that 'A Poster' conducted the attack and told 'B Poster' to keep quiet about it.
