That is the narrative the MSM is sticking to. Chemical weapons used, has to have been Assad. BS. I belive it was the Muslim Brotherhood.
French and Israeli sources are indicating that the attack was from one of the three chemical weapons depots in Syria. Satellites picked up a frenzy of activity at the base commanded by Assad's brother, approximately 1/2 hour before the attack. There seems to be very little doubt amongst intelligence agencies about who is responsible for this attack. We don't have video, so we can't know, conclusively, but all things are pointing at Assad. Some of the Israeli and French sources are saying it is the fulfilment of Assad's promise to use chemical weapons if/when outside countries became in his civil war. It is claimed that the attack was in response to the first group of American trained rebels entering the country. I don't think we should be involved in this mess, but it is hard now, that Obama has gone and shot of his mouth about red lines. Its almost like we don't have a choice, but we could limit our response to a dozen cruise missiles or something similar.
I hadn’t heard about the French and Israeli reports. I’ll avoid further comment until more information is out. I still maintain we need to stay out of this. I am not an isolationist. But if France and Israel have the intel, let the French act. Israel needs to hang back.
