U.S. Claims It Has Evidence Syrian Forces Used Poison Gas, Finally


I don't know what the fuck took them so long.
(CNN) -- The United States has evidence that the chemical weapon sarin has been used in Syria on a small scale, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Thursday. But numerous questions remain about the origins of the chemical and what impact its apparent use could have on the ongoing Syrian civil war and international involvement in it. When asked if the intelligence community's conclusion pushed the situation across President Barack Obama's "red line" that could potentially trigger more U.S. involvement in the war, Hagel said it's too soon to say. "We need all the facts. We need all the information," he said. "What I've just given you is what our intelligence community has said they know. As I also said, they are still assessing and they are still looking at what happened, who was responsible and the other specifics that we'll need."
The problem I have with this is that it is old news. Clear back in December Al Jazeera reported several people near Homs were killed in an attack using " something similar to Sarin gas".

Way to be on the ball there fella's. This is just one more example of why I go out of country to get real news.

  1. And of course the US will do nothing about the "red line" being crossed.
