because the health rescue people aren't properly suited and aren't dying

The visual evidence points to a sarin type nerve agent. The chemical analysis confirms the clinical picture. What is your theory on the warehouse?

The attack was at 0630. Whether first responders were affected is dependent on many things, including wind, amount and concentration of agent, rate of degradation. I am not aware that if some medical emergency personnel didn't get sick. The videos show that victims were being sprayed down with water hoses after clothes were removed. I guess they want to wash off toxic agent and also excrement. One of the effects is loss of bowel control.

Sarin is a clear, colorless, and tasteless liquid that has no odor in its pure form. However, sarin can evaporate into a vapor (gas) and spread into the environment.

according to syrian minister the first reports of the chemical attack appeared several hours before the government airstrike, so an independent investigation needs to happen

Do you see the problem here? On one hand the warehouse supposedly contained sarin and was somehow dispersed when bombed. On the other hand, there wasn't a chemical attack at all, according to Assad's new claim, and it was a 100% fabrication.

also

The US military tracked the aircraft from the airfield to Khan Shaykhun at the time of the attack. The Syrian plane was over the town at 0637 and 0646.

Nice, yet even some of the worst poison gas do clear away after some amount of time salty.

And after trying to get us to believe it was some other group including the C.I.A. that did this dastlery deed of gassing these civilian, non combatants, are you know saying that poison gas wasn't used..

Man your getting like the Trump, changing your position on the issues...

Theodore Postol


Quote:
received his undergraduate degree in physics and his PhD in nuclear engineering from MIT. Postol worked at Argonne National Laboratory, where he studied the microscopic dynamics and structure of liquids and disordered solids using neutron, X-ray and light scattering techniques, along with molecular dynamics simulations . He also worked at the Congressional Office of Technology Assessment, where he studied methods of basing the MX missile, and later worked as a scientific adviser to the Chief of Naval Operations.
Quote:
After leaving the Pentagon, Postol helped build a program at Stanford University to train mid-career scientists to study weapons technology in relation to defense and arms control policy. In 1990, Postol received the Leo Szilard Prize from the American Physical Society. In 1995, he received the Hilliard Roderick Prize from the American Association for the Advancement of Science and in 2001, he received the Norbert Wiener Award from Computer Professionals for Social Responsibility for "uncovering numerous and important false claims about missile defenses." On September 28, 2016 the Federation of American Scientists awarded Professor Theodore Postol from MIT their annual Richard L. Garwin Award for his work in assessing and critiquing the government's claims about missile defense...
To give an example of his work, he said of ...
Quote:
The Patriot Missile ...used in Operation Desert Storm to intercept descent-phase SCUD missiles fired by Iraq. The U.S. Army claimed a success rate of 80% in Saudi Arabia and 50% in Israel, claims that were later reduced to 70% and 40%. But President George H. W. Bush claimed a success rate of more than 97 percent during a speech at Raytheon's Patriot manufacturing plant in Andover, Massachusetts during the Gulf War, declaring, the "Patriot is 41 for 42: 42 Scuds engaged, 41 intercepted!" ...
...The Patriot missile system was not the spectacular success in the Persian Gulf War that the American public was led to believe. There is little evidence to prove that the Patriot hit more than a few Scud missiles launched by Iraq during the Gulf War, and there are some doubts about even these engagements. The public and the Congress were misled by definitive statements of success issued by administration and Raytheon representatives during and after the war....
...Postol later went on to criticize the Army's "independent" Analysis of Video Tapes to Assess Patriot Effectiveness as being "seriously compromised" by the "selective" and "arbitrary" use of data. The Army ultimately downgraded its assessment of the systems' effectiveness.

Quote:
On Tuesday, the White House released a declassified intelligence brief accusing Syrian President Bashar Assad of ordering and organizing the attack, in which Syrian planes allegedly dropped chemical ordnance on civilians in the rebel-held town.
Quote:
The report “contains absolutely no evidence that this attack was the result of a munition being dropped from an aircraft,” wrote Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Professor Theodore Postol, who reviewed it and put together a 14-page assessment
