Invited this Thursday evening on CNEWS in the program “Elysée 2022: ask for the program” about the hypothesis raised by American intelligence to see Russia using chemical weapons in Ukraine, Marine Le Pen showed reserve.
“I only trust French intelligence, I remain cautious with the information provided by the United States and by all the great powers because they defend their own interests, their calendar is not necessarily ours”, a she declared.
According to the far-right candidate, “a great power like France” must “rely on its own sources of information”.
To support her remarks, Marine Le Pen cited the example of the American military intervention in Iraq in 2003, “based on American intelligence”. “They were convinced, vial in hand, that there were chemical weapons in Iraq and it turned out later that there were none,” she said.
