"The secretary is perfectly comfortable with the options he provided" to @POTUS, per @ChiefPentSpox, calling Syria mission successful
@ChiefPentSpox: As expected, Russia immediately began a misinformation campaign to sow doubt and confusion to hide its complicity. Russia falsely claimed Syria air defense shot down a significant number of missiles when in fact, all of our missiles hit their targets
@ChiefPentSpox: The Russian manufactured air defense systems were totally ineffective. Russia and the Assad government demonstrated the ineffectiveness of their systems, again, 2 days later when those systems engage accidentally
@ChiefPentSpox: We have seen no indication the Assad government is prepared to launch another chemical weapons attack. However, we remain vigilant. Assad must know the world will not tolerate the use of chemical weapons under any circumstances
@ChiefPentSpox: The strike last Friday was separate and distinct from our mission in Syria - which remains the complete annihilation of ISIS
