On Thursday, US Congressman Thomas Massie announced that the US director of national intelligence, the defense secretary and the secretary of state had “provided zero evidence” showing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons against the Syrian people in Douma.
“In briefing to Congress, DNI, SecDef, and SecState provided zero real evidence. Referenced info circulating online. Which means they either chose not to provide proof to Congress or they don’t have conclusive proof that Assad carried out gas attack,” Massie, a Republican representing northern Kentucky, said in a tweet.
“Either way, not good,” the lawmaker concluded.
