“Even if we set aside, for the sake of argument, all other reasons for opposing US intervention in Syria, this claim is still problematic for one simple reason. That reason? The US government lies. It lies all the time. It lies casually, it lies flagrantly, it lies for political advantage and, to all appearances, lies compulsively even to its own political dis-advantage. It frequently lies to itself in one way while its internal branches lie to each other in multiple different ways. … even if the use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime was an acceptable casus belli, we still don’t know whether that happened or not, because we can’t believe a word the US government says.” (08/28/13)
