BREAKING: US Defense Secretary “Mad Dog” Mattis Says US Still Reviewing Intelligence on “Chemical Attack”

US Defense Secretary James “Mad Dog” Mattis has stated that US officials are still assessing intelligence regarding an alleged chemical attack in the Damascus suburb of Douma. Mattis’s statements mark a departure from the line of US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley and Donald Trump who have both concluded that there was a chemical weapons attack and that the Syrian Arab Army is somehow responsible for it.

When asked about the incident Mattis replied,

“We’re still assessing the intelligence – ourselves and our allies. We’re still working on this”.

Russia and Syria have called for the OPCW to conduct a full, independent investigation. OPCW investigators are said to be heading to the scene after the organisation agreed to investigate the incident.
