Today on the Sunday news talk shows, Secretary of State John Kerry linked Syrian President Bashar Hafez al-Assad to Hitler because of their use of poison gas:
“Bashar al-Assad now joins the list of Adolf Hitler and Saddam Hussein [who] have used these weapons in time of war.”
The only problem with this is that Hitler never used poison gas. From historynet.com
[Hitler] didn’t drop poison gas on civilian populations during bombing raids by the Luftwaffe. He didn’t even use it tactically against enemy troop concentrations.
Which brings additional emphasis to Sheldon Richman’s point:
If John Kerry said it was Sunday, I’d have grave doubts.
