The choice of the date for the Syrian gas attack was to dare, even demand, that the US bomb Syria. We speculated on the roles of Iran and Russia. However, Yossef Bodansky, who is a serious guy, thinks that Assad’s opposition did the gas attack. He makes a very interesting case. There needs to be compelling evidence, publicly presented, before decisions are made. It is not good to see top Democrats and Republicans endorsing a war of some sort before a definitive case has been made to the public.
