Powell's Former Chief Of Staff: Chemical Weapon Use In Syria "Could Have Been An Israeli False Flag Operation"


Retired Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, former Chief of Staff to Colin Powell during the Bush administration, talks to Current TV's Cenk Uygur about how President Obama should handle early evidence that Syria may have used chemicals weapons.

"I think the President’s statement was very circumspect, very prudent," Wilkerson says. "We don’t know what the chain of custody is. This could’ve been an Israeli false flag operation, it could’ve been an opposition in Syria… or it could’ve been an actual use by [Syrian President] Bashar al-Assad, but we certainly don’t know with the evidence we’ve been given. And what I’m hearing from the intelligence community is that that evidence is really flakey."
