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 Presidentâ€™s statement was very circumspect, very prudent," Wilkerson says. "We donâ€™t know what the chain of custody is. This couldâ€™ve been an Israeli false flag operation, it couldâ€™ve been an opposition in Syriaâ€¦ or it couldâ€™ve been an actual use by [Syrian President] Bashar al-Assad, but we certainly donâ€™t know with the evidence weâ€™ve been given. And what Iâ€™m hearing from the intelligence community is that that evidence is really flakey."
