A look at veteran journalist Seymour Herst's latest investigation, which questions whether Syrian President Assad was responsible for another alleged gas attack at Khan Sheikhoun.

Excerpt: Again a consensual western narrative was quickly constructed after social media showed dozens of Syrians dead, apparently following a bomb dropped by Syrian aircraft. For the first time in his presidency, Donald Trump received wall-to-wall praise for launching a military strike on Syria in response, even though, as Hersh documents, he had no evidence on which to base such an attack, one that gravely violated international law.
