Former Obama Amb. to Syria Hits Andrea Mitchell for Blaming Trump for Chemical Attack: ‘That Analysis Is Off the Mark’

‘He was using them long before Donald Trump ever talked about bringing American forces out of Syria’

EXCERPT:

FORD: "No, I don’t think Donald Trump’s remarks about withdrawing forces from Syria, withdrawing American forces from Syria emboldened Bashar al Assad. Look, Bashar al Assad has been using chemical weapons regularly in Syria dating back to at least 2013. This wasn’t the first or second or third time, he’s used them and he was using them long before Donald Trump ever talked about bringing American forces out of Syria. So in this case, I have to say I think that analysis is off the mark."
