The truth about Syria's poison gas incident in one paragaraph

This one paragraph says all that needs to be said about what happened in Syria with the poison gas incident.

The rational for attacking Syria is to punish Assad. But what if he didn't order, or know about the attack in advance?

In that case it becomes an internal matter of military discipline within the Syrian Army.

We don't expect other countires to attack the US when our military personanel commit a crime against humanity.

Neither should Syria.

Courtesy of, here is the paragraph that sums it all up (emphasis mine):

"Speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss classified intelligence, the three U.S. officials said intercepted Syrian communications provide no ironclad evidence that Assad or members of his inner circle ordered the attack. Two of them said the intercepts indicate that he didn’t know about it in advance and demanded that his subordinates explain what had happened."
