US Congressman Surprises CNN by Backing Moscow’s Position on Idlib Attack

In an interview with CNN, US Congressman Thomas Massie said he doubted that Syrian President Bashar Assad was involved in a chemical attack in the Syrian province of Idlib.

“Frankly, I don’t think Assad would have done that,” Massie said, catching CNN’s TV presenter Kate Bolduan by surprise.
Astonished by his statement, Bolduan asked the lawmaker whether he believes the Russians and Bashar al-Assad more than his colleagues in the United States.

In response, Massey doubted that a chemical attack on his own people would serve the interests of the Syrian president.
From the congressman’s point of view, the release of gas into the atmosphere could have happened unintentionally as a result of an airstrike on a weapons depot.

“You’ve got a war going on over there,” Massie said. “Supposedly that airstrike was on an ammo dump, and so I don’t know if it was released because there was gas stored in the ammo dump or not — that’s plausible.”
