On Friday 7th of April, the US military conducted an illegal missile strike against Syria, following accusations that the Syrian Army used chemical weapons against civilians, despite no single evidence. 59 Tomahawk missiles were fired, but only 23 reached their targets as the rest got intercepted. The strike was beneficial for ISIS and other terrorist groups as it temporarily disrupted the only military airport to be constantly used against ISIS, in addition to the deaths of 6 soldiers and 9 civilians, 4 of them children. 

Now the journalists at the Berlin-based Firil Center did some research and eventually discovered the identity of people in charge. 

Andria Slough, commanding officer of the destroyer USS Porter DDG78 which carried out Syria strike, is a graduate of the US Naval Academy and earned her Bachelor’s degree in ocean engineering in 1998. She was previously involved in the ballistic missile defense development project (Aegis) and has served as a deputy commander at the U.S. Central Command Headquarters in Doha, Qatar. Aegis is the US national Ballistic Missile Defense System and has its radar sites in Qatar.

The second offender was revealed to be Russell Caldwell, commander of the US Navy destroyer USS ROSS DDG 7, also involved in Syria strike. Caldwell, originally from Johannesburg, South Africa, graduated from Political Science in 1998 at the University of Kansas and later earned a Master’s Degree in Information Operations.

The strike was, however, considered “amateurish” and the damage dealt “laughable“.
