Assads Science Center NOT Involved in Gassing – Assads Brother Not Involved in Gassing Yet EU Warms Up To Possible Assad Regime Involvement

Secretary of State John Kerry met with EU Ministers today and he was “very grateful” to receive a “clear and strong response” from the EU Bloc that they now believe there is “strong evidence” that Assad was behind the gassing of his own people. The EU sounds a bit like low-toned war drums drumming but it wants to await the full report of U.N. inspectors (who were not allowed to visit 6 key locations that would have been important to their findings). Never mind. At the same time, the AP is reporting the “best evidence” the US has is evidence from France that Syria’s SSRC would have been involved as the SSRC is the science center that creates the chemical weapons and reports directly to Assad…but they have no such evidence. They cannot name a single person inside the SSRC. The US is admitting SSRC director Amr Armanazi is NOT involved.

Maher Assad - Bashar Assad 2011

Maher Assad – Bashar Assad 2011

AP is saying there is no confirmation of a direct link to Assad knowing about the chemical weapons attack, including his Syrian Commander brother, Maher Assad.

While U.S. officials say Assad is responsible for the chemical weapons strike even if he did not directly order it, they have not been able to fully describe a chain of command for the August 21 attack in the Ghouta area east of the Syrian capital.

It is one of the biggest gaps in U.S. understanding of the incident, even as Congress debates whether to launch limited strikes on Assad’s forces in retaliation.

After wrongly claiming that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction before the 2003 U.S. invasion, the U.S. intelligence community, along with the Obama administration, are trying to build as solid a case as they can about what it says was a sarin nerve gas attack that killed over 1,400 people.

The U.S. does not believe Assad’s brother Maher was tied to the attacks. It seems there is no one to blame among the few leaders who had the ability to do the gassing. Oh well…

    Wow – these math problems are getting harder and harder!
    Maggie – you confirm what other sources are stating – that no one knows who released the gas. One even stated that it was Obama behind the release as he needed an excuse to go to war.

    Obama should be impeached if he tries. He will NOW try to think of whom to blame. It can’t be Bush, It can’t be congress, it can’t be the American people so he will blame the international allies who won’t support him. He will say something like the following: The American people have spoken through their representatives and I will listen to them. HAH – he didn’t for any other event so why now? Think Obamacare.

    This slimslug should be removed from the White House and let the incompetent Biden take his place. but then, if he were to fail the chain of command going down is so poor – Biden and then Boehner -egads……our forefathers would be turning over in their graves.
