Breaking: WH Confirms Assad Used Nerve Agent, Sarin, On Syrian People
Hillary’s beloved “reformer”, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, gassed his own people. Today, the White House confirmed it.
In a letter to Congress, the White House confirmed there is physiological evidence that the chemical weapon, Sarin, or a nerve agent very similar to it, was used on the Syrian people.
According to CNN,
The Obama administration has confirmed what we have been hearing for months, that chemical weapons have been used in Syria by the regime of embattled President Bashar al-Assad.
The news, revealed in a White House letter to Congress, presents President Obama with a stark question. Will the United States become directly involved in the two-year-old Syrian civil war?
Last August, Obama issued a stern warning to Assad. If he used chemical weapons, Obama said, even if he moved them in preparation for use, he would cross a “red line” that would have “enormous consequences.” Before that, Obama had already declared that the regime would be “held accountable” if it made the “tragic mistake of using those weapons,” a warning he repeated last month during a trip to the Middle East.
Obama has now come up against his own words and the stakes are enormous.
More damning details from The Washington Post,
THREE MAJOR U.S. allies — Britain, France and Israel — have now concluded that the Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad has very likely used chemical weapons, not once but on multiple occasions. This would cross a “red line” drawn by President Obama. An Israeli general said Tuesday that “the regime used lethal chemical weapons against gunmen in a series of incidents in recent months,” including a March 19 attack near Aleppo where a “sarin-type” substance was employed. The British and French governments reported to U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon that they had corroborating evidence, including soil samples, of chemical-weapon use in three instances since December.
Though his policy on Syria has been weak and muddled, Mr. Obama has been very clear that the United States “will not tolerate the use of chemical weapons against the Syrian people,” as he put it last month. He has said that such use would be a “game-changer.”
Let’s see how Obama waffles on his “red line” ultimatum.
