U.S. lawmaker says ‘compelling’ evidence of Syrian chemical attack

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The chairman of the U.S. House intelligence committee said on Tuesday that the evidence is “convincing, if not compelling” that the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was behind the chemical weapons attack near Damascus this month.

Representative Mike Rogers, a Republican, said he has looked into the August 21 attack and spoken to U.S. government intelligence analysts and operators, but his committee did not receive a formal consultation from President Barack Obama’s administration, despite the seriousness of the issue.
