Tillerson: Russia ‘Complicit, or Simply Incompetent’ in Preventing Syria’s Chemical Gas Attack


Relations between Russia and the United States appeared less than cozy Thursday evening after U.S. airstrikes against Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.

According to reports from NBC’s Peter Alexander, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, issued a pointed rebuke to Russia, saying the country was either “complicit, of simply incompetent” in preventing the recent chemical gas attack in Syria.

The chain of events currently unfolding this evening promises to upend the narrative of Trump’s close ties to Russian president Vladimir Putin.
