Syria and Sarin: who was Hersh’s anonymous source?
Brian Whitaker

Another person with expertise who doubts that Syria engaged in an attack with sarin gas bomb, is Scott Ritter, a former UN weapons inspector, who famously reported that Saddam Hussein did not have WMD in Iraq. Ritter cites the absence of evidence supplied by eyewitnesses on the scene immediately after the bombing. He explained that the types of bombs used to deliver sarin would leave lots of debris (bomb casings & other parts) on the scene that would clearly indicate that a chemical attack had been made. The famous ‘pipe in the road pothole’ photo that is often cited by people claiming Assad did it, is inconsistent with a sarin gas bomb, according to Ritter.
