Barely a day ago, one of the top Google searches regarding Syria was Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh’s recent bombshell that the Trump administration did not have any intelligence linking Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to an alleged chemical weapons attack in Khan Sheikhoun in April of this year — but that he went ahead and bombed Assad’s… Read More ›
