Notice how the narrative on Syria has shifted away from last year’s deadly sarin gas attack? The one that occurred days after UN weapons inspectors arrived, miles from their hotel? Pulitzer Prize winner Seymour Hersh has researched the attack. He explains his findings in a recent appearance on Democracy Now.
Here is Mr. Hersh’s full report, published in the London Review of Books. The Washington Post and New Yorker refused to publish his piece. We should be thankful for the intervention of Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey, which prevented yet another war in the Middle East on false pretext.

If you want to know if someone is telling the truth, keep an eye on the eyes.
Liars blink in different ways during and after a falsehood, researchers claim.
They blink less than normal during the lie, and then have a flurry up to eight times faster than usual afterwards.
‘It is striking what different patterns in eye blinks emerged for liars and truth tellers,’ said Dr Sharon Leal, co-author of the study at Portsmouth University.
‘Such striking differences in behaviour between liars and truth tellers are rarely seen in deception research.’
