Congressman With Top-Secret Briefing Isn’t Impressed with Syrian War Claims
The only reason the whole allegation [that the Syrian government used chemical weapons] hasn’t been dismissed out of hand is the administration’s repeated claims that they have better, secret intelligence that they’re just not showing anyone, or occasionally are letting already pro-war Congressmen get a glimpse of.
But – as the Weekly Standard reports – some Congressmen who have gotten a classified briefing aren’t impressed:
“I have just attended a classified Congressional briefing on Syria that quite frankly raised more questions than it answered. I found the evidence presented by Administration officials to be circumstantial” …. liberal Democrat Tom Harkin says in a statement released after today’s classified Capitol Hill briefing.
