  1. This is far more valuable – people open sourcing intelligence analysis on the event…The number of questions raised is awesome…

  2. And from July with regard to the Aleppo chemical attack:

  4. Don Bacon says:

    Unlike previous attacks, the degree of open source reporting of CW use on 21 August has been considerable. As a result, there is little serious dispute that chemical attacks causing mass casualties on a larger scale than hitherto (including, we judge, at least 350 fatalities) took place.

    Who needs an “intelligence community” when we have YouTube? Fire the buggers. That would cause little serious dispute.
