Sy Hersh, Exposer of My Lai and Abu Ghraib, Strikes Again, Exposing US Lies About Alleged Assad Sarin Gas 'Attack'

What if you write a critically important story and nobody will print it?

Update: Late yesterday, US and UK news outlets were claiming that Gen. Mattis and UN Ambassador Nikki Haley both were stating that the Assad government had "taken (Trump's) warning seriously," and had apparently called off the alleged Sarin gas attack preparations that Trump earlier in the week had claimed -- without giving any evidence or source of information -- were underway. At the time, both the military and US intelligence agencies were reported to be in the dark about such alleged preparations. Ambassador Haley is simply a Trump sycophant, but it looks like Gen. Mattis, who according to Hersh's article earlier spared the world a Trump-caused global nuclear conflict by offering his boss a list of retaliatory options that only really gave him one harmless option to select, the others being either to do nothing, or to go head-to-head against Russian forces, this time figured out the best way to avoid a Trump-caused war was to salve the president's ego by telling him his bombastic threat "worked." So far so good, but how long this bizarre strategy will work to prevent a US-Russian hot war is hard to say, though.
