Damn, these guys are really on the ball.
(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 only problem I have is that this is old news.
Four fucking months ago Syrian opposition fighters reported several deaths caused by a deadly gas attack and U.S. Intelligence is just now getting around to confirming it?
Way to go fella’s.
This is just one more example of why I go out of country for news sources.
