Is it just me wondering if there's no news services in Syria anymore? If Huston was gas attacked, it would be all world news in every country. Why is there no Syrian news coming out of there anymore? Are they all closed down?Quoting: T-Cain
The best thing they can do is to continue to communicate with the world.
I seriously don't know which side perpetrated the chemical attack. Russia says Rebels. Our Government says Asad.
Can anyone give us solid proof? Is that, in and of itself, i.e., the denial of proof something we should be worried about?
I honestly don't trust my own government to tell us the truth.
Was there even a chem attack?
U.S. intelligence officials were able to confirm that chemical weapons were used in Syria last week in part because they intercepted panicked phone calls in which a Syrian defense official demanded an explanation for the attack from an official in a chemical weapons unit, according to a new report.
Foreign Policy reported Wednesday that U.S. intelligence overheard the phone calls, which helped drive the Obama administration to the unequivocal declaration this week that chemical weapons were deployed.
The phone calls, as well as photo evidence and local accounts, are part of the portfolio of evidence the U.S. is preparing before proceeding with a response -- likely a military strike, according to sources -- in the coming days.
The intercept, though, raises questions about the nature of last week's attack. If a Syrian defense official was questioning the chemical weapons unit about the attack, it raises the possibility that it was a rogue event -- or, to the contrary, cleared at the highest levels, without the say-so from mid-level defense officials.
"It's unclear where control lies," one unnamed intelligence officials reportedly told Foreign Policy.
One official added that the U.S. does not know why the attack happened. "We just know it was pretty f------ stupid."
