It’s interesting that Hersh wrongly talked about fertiliser as a cause of the symptoms. Three months ago Lawrence Wilkerson, who claims the Khan Sheikoun incident was a hoax, gave an account of what he thought happened which was similar to the account in Hersh’s article. Wilkerson also mentioned fertiliser.

This suggests that either Wilkerson was the source for Hersh’s article or Wilkerson and Hersh both got the story from the same source.
