According to Seymour M Hersh, Barack Obama did not tell the whole story when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. He omitted important intelligence, presented some assumptions as fact and failed to acknowledge that the Syrian army is not the only part in the country's civil war with access to sarin. In the months before the attack, the American intelligence agencies produced a series of highly classified reports citing evidence that the alNusra Front, a jihadi group affiliated with al-Qaeda, had mastered the mechanics of creating sarin and was capable of manufacturing it in quantity. When the attack occurred alNusra should have been a suspect, but the administration cherry-picked intelligence to justify a strike against Assad,writes Hersh. One high-level intelligence officer wrote in an email that the attack was not the result of the current regime.When Obama decided to walk away from his red-line threat to bomb Syria, it appears possible that at some point he was directly confronted with contradictory information: evidence strong enough to persuade him to cancel his attack plan.
