Some in US Intel. Community Reject Obama Admin Case for Syria Attack

Gareth Porter: US Intelligence on Syria 'cherry-picked' by proponents of proposed strike

As the Obama administration continues to outline its case for attacking Syria, new revelations call into question the very intelligence the White House is using to justify its actions.

Joining the Real News Network to discuss this is Gareth Porter. He's a historian and investigative journalist on U.S. foreign and military policy. He writes regularly for the Inter Press Service, and he received the U.K.-based Gellhorn Prize for Journalism in 2011 for his articles on the U.S. war in Afghanistan. His new piece published today in IPS is "Obama's Case for Syria Didn't Reflect Intel Consensus".
