US Lawmaker: Government ‘Provided Zero Real Evidence’ of Chemical Attack

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.

On April 13, Massie asserted, “I haven’t read France’s or Britain’s ‘Constitution,’ but I’ve read ours and nowhere in it is Presidential authority to strike Syria.”

Massie, an engineer by training, is not alone in this assessment. International law professor Francis Boyle told Radio Sputnik’s Loud & Clear the strikes on Syria violated the war powers clause of the US Constitution, the War Powers Resolution of 1973 and the Charter of the United Nations.

Senator Rand Paul, also a Republican representing Kentucky, said earlier this week, “I still look at the attack and say, you know, either Assad must be the dumbest dictator on the planet — or maybe he didn’t do it. I have yet to see evidence that he did do it.”
