Washington, Apr 11 (AP) White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer suggested today that Adolf Hitler didn’t use chemical weapons.
Hitler killed Jews during the Holocaust using gas chambers at concentration camps.
Spicer, comparing Hitler to Syria’s Bashar al-Assad, said Hitler “didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons”.
An April 4 chemical weapons attack in northern Syria left nearly 90 people dead, and the US has blamed Assad. Turkey’s health minister said today that test results confirm sarin gas was used.
Spicer later tried to clarify his statement, saying Hitler didn’t use chemical weapons on his own people “in the same way” as Assad. AP
