Rand Paul Says Syrian Chemical Attack Was False Flag – Video

Fact checked

Republican Senator Rand Paul says he has seen no evidence that could justify claims that the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad  carried out the alleged chemical attack in the town of Douma.

He added that the incident was used as a pretext to “galvanize the world” against the Syrian leader.

During an interview with CNN on Tuesday, Paul said:

“I still look at the attack and say, you know, either Assad must be the dumbest dictator on the planet — or maybe he didn’t do it. I have yet to see evidence that he did do it”


Press TV reports: The Kentucky senator said it was unlikely that the Syrian government carried out the attack particularly after its forces have been winning the war against terrorists and militant groups in the Arab country for the past two years.

“The only thing that would galvanize the world to attack Assad directly is a chemical attack.  It killed relatively few people compared to what can be killed with traditional bombs … and so you wonder really what logic would there be for Assad to be using chemical weapons,” Paul noted.

Back on April 7, a suspected chemical attack on the town of Douma, in Syria’s Eastern Ghouta, reportedly killed 60 people and injured hundreds more. Western countries blamed the incident on the Syrian government, but Damascus strongly rejected the accusations as “chemical fabrications” made by the terrorists themselves in a bid to halt pro-government forces’ advances.

The US, Britain and France launched a barrage of cruise missiles on different Syrian government targets on Saturday morning, targeting what they called chemical weapons sites in retaliation for the Douma incident.


  1. Listening to Sen. Paul explain the rationale for his opinion, I’m reminded of The Talking Heads song, “Stop Making Sense”.

    • I agree…. this Syria shit is getting beyond the joke.. who fucking cares anyway…… fuck Syria… just blow the shithole up and be done with it.. just nuke it and put the Syrians out of their misery.. I MEAN SERIOUSLY… WHO REALLY GIVES A FUCK ABOUT THOSE SHITHOLES OVER THERE…

  2. What does the chemical attack bring Syria? Why is Assad isolated? Why isn’t Trump making friends, instead of enemies with Syria? Get rid of the chemical weapons plants, I get it. Let’s talk first. We can’t trust ANY media. No one has the real story but the people who are living it.

  3. Thank you Senator Rand Paul and yournewswire. The trolls are really out in force, and you only get flack like this when you’re over the target, Very few evil people want to destroy Syria and start WWIII based on another in an endless series of Luciferian lies whose goal is inaugurating the ant-Christ in the recreation of the temple Solomon built to offer human sacrifices to Ba’al.

  4. Rand is the only member of congress, who tells it like it is ! His father-same thing. This is why neither stood a chance at being elected as POTUS !
