Kerry: Sarin used in Syria
CNN, by Ashley Killough

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 9/1/2013 10:39:14 AM

Blood and hair samples from eastern Damascus, Syria, have "tested positive for signatures of sarin" gas, Secretary of State John Kerry said Sunday, arguing that with "each day that goes by, this case is even stronger." Kerry said on CNN´s "State of the Union" that the U.S. obtained the samples independently through an "appropriate chain of custody"," not the United Nations chemical weapons inspectors. "We know that the regime ordered this attack, we know they prepared for it," Kerry said. "We know where the rockets came from. We know where they landed. We know the damage that was

on Friday,after his speech on the Syrian situation, i thought Kerry had found his backbone. then his leader humiliated him hours later. surely Kerry should have flirted with resigning immediately and forced prez to send someone out to make the Sunday news show rounds - ummm, Susan Rice knows how to spout party line quite well. alas, no. America, wake up to the serious incompetence of this administration. please!

I wonder about that appropriate chain of custody from which he says we independently got the samples. I wonder about a lot of things lately. I notice Hillary is staying above the potential fray....

Oh gee, wasn´t it Sarin gas that George W. Bush said Saddam Hussein possessed as part of his "Weapons of Mass Destruction"?

And while Bush waited for Congressional approval to go into Iraq and oust Saddam Hussein, we saw days and days of large trucks from SYRIA moving into Iraq, loading up something at various military bases, and returning back to Syria. And then, Surprise, Surprise, the Democrats crowed to the skies that no WMD was found in Iraq!!!

And now Syria is accused of using Sarin gas?

And so wasn´t George W. Bush right after all?

Now those self-same, short-sighted Congressional Democrats have Obama in the White House and Assad using Sarin gas for their efforts.

And, sadly, so do we.

If we had all of this rock solid intel then why did we let the attack happen in the first place? Oh yeah that´s right, were just going on the word of the Muslim Brotherhood.

If the UN says it will take several days for results ... perhaps they should have Kerry do their testing for them.

Yesterday, the LA Times published this:

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon was briefed Saturday by his arms control advisor on results of the United Nation’s probe of the alleged Syrian chemical weapons attack, but aides said completion of the much-anticipated report on the attack remains days away.

I guess that Kerry has missed the news today that Syrian rebels gassed themselves by accident. They didn´t know what they were handling, and the gas leaked.

So this news today kind of undercuts Kerry and Obama´s reason for going to Syria doesn´t it?

Gas was most likely used, but by what side? My guess is the "rebels" themselves. Assad would have no reason to. By the way the "rebels" have been identified with affiliations to Al Qaeda....

Any pretext will do when you want to go to war. Kerry now, after all these years, and after not voting for any funding for military equipment, now finds a war he wants to fight. And the reason, because his vanity is offended.

On Chris Wallace´s Fox News Sunday:

Kerry told “Fox News Sunday" that blood and hair samples taken from first-responders in Damascus have tested positive for sarin.

"first-responders"....who?

Obie knows that the "evidence" would not hold up in court. No matter how much Kerry blusters, there is, I´ll bet, no hard evidence RIGHT NOW that sarin was used.

That is why the UN team collected samples and other evidence and says it will issue its own report. Imagine if that report conflicted with UN-supporters Obie and Kerry.

Stooge Biden is just a bystander, a prop. Pathetic.

Mexican man gets 30 years in killing

Tuscon - A Mexican man was sentenced to 30 years in prison Monday for Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry´s slaying, which led to the unraveling of the failed federal gun-tracking operation known as Fast and Furious. Manuel Osorio-Arellanes, 37, who pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in October 2012 in exchange for avoiding the death penalty, apologized in court. "I regret what happened, sir," Osorio-Arellanes told the judge in Spanish. "I too was hurt. I don´t know what else to say. Please forgive me." He was part of a group of bandits who engaged in a shootout with Terry and three other Border Patrol agents in southern Arizona,

Of course it´s too early to talk about 2016. Now that we´ve gotten that out of the way... The most interesting dynamic so far is that the Democrats are behaving like Republicans — and vice versa. Since 1940, with the arguable exception of Barry Goldwater, Republicans have nominated the guy next in line. Thomas Dewey almost beat Wendell Willkie for the nomination in 1940, so in 1944 — and 1948 — it was his turn. Dwight Eisenhower, whom both parties wanted as their nominee, was a special case, given that whole invading-Europe-and-defeating-Hitler thing. Richard Nixon was Ike's vice president in 1960, and in 1968

Children with cancer ´denied

EU rules must be changed to allow more testing of potentially life-saving cancer drugs on children, say experts. The UK´s Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) says the current system acts as a disincentive to drug companies who can seek waivers to avoid doing the trials. Of 28 new cancer drugs approved in the EU for adults since 2007, 26 could potentially work in children, but 14 have been exempted from child testing. The ICR wants these "class waivers" to be scrapped. The European Commission is considering whether to change its guidelines.

House Republicans return to Washington on Monday still struggling to find a path to raising the Treasury Department’s borrowing authority, but the normally raucous caucus is in unusual agreement that the best option is to put the white-knuckle confrontations of recent fiscal wars behind them. Facing a timeline that leaves no room for trial and error, some party leaders were advocating a debt-ceiling solution that would wrap several popular, must-pass items around a provision to extend the federal government’s borrowing authority beyond the November midterm elections. That approach has drawn support from some surprising quarters,

In the midst of a busy 2012 election cycle, Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin´s offhand remark to a local television station about what constituted "legitimate rape" might have slipped under the radar. But Akin was a prime target for an opposition research powerhouse, American Bridge 21st Century, and their Akin tracker was on the ball. Within hours, the Democratic "super PAC" had uploaded the clip to YouTube and pushed it to reporters — ensuring that it blew up on Twitter and headed to the top of national news. Akin´s candidacy was doomed. For Republicans, who had no research outfit to match American Bridge,

Last October, in between arguments over the debt ceiling, the federal government somehow found time to send me an email.

Swiss voters have narrowly backed a referendum proposal to bring back strict quotas for immigration from European Union countries. Final results showed 50.3% voted in favour. The vote invalidates the Swiss-EU agreement on freedom of movement. Fiercely independent Switzerland is not a member of the EU, but has adopted large sections of EU policy. (Snip) The BBC´s Imogen Foulkes in Geneva says the vote has shown up traditional divisions, with French-speaking areas against the quotas, German-speaking regions divided, and the Italian-speaking canton of Ticino firmly in favour.

Georgetown, Guyana – The U.S. Embassy in Guyana warned Sunday that it had received "unconfirmed threat information" about a regional airline´s flights from the South American country to the United States on Monday and urged Americans to avoid using the carrier. The terse message about flights of Caribbean Airlines was unusual for being so specific about a potential threat, although it gave no details on the threat. The warning was posted Sunday on the embassy´s website. It advised all U.S. citizens in Guyana to make alternate travel arrangements through Wednesday if they were planning on traveling home on flights with

   

 



 
NFL´s first openly gay player?

Three months before the NFL draft, star Missouri football player Michael Sam has publicly come out as gay, raising the possibility that the league may soon have its first openly gay player. In interviews published Sunday, Sam -- the 2013 SEC defensive player of the year -- said he came out to University of Missouri teammates last year and decided to go public now so he could tell his story his own way. "I am an openly, proud, gay man," Sam, 24, told ESPN, adding: "I understand how big this is. It´s a big deal. No one has done this before. And it's kind of a nervous process, but I know what I want to be ... I want to be a football player in the

Democrats from President Obama on down have been touting Obamacare´s sign-up numbers. Even after the system´s disastrous rollout, they like to point out, roughly three million people have signed up for private insurance, while 6.3 million have signed up for Medicaid. "Already, because of the Affordable Care Act, more than nine million Americans have signed up for private health insurance or Medicaid coverage," Obama said in the State of the Union speech. "Nine million." (Snip) But there is strong new evidence to suggest the administration's claims are grossly exaggerated and deeply misleading. Obamacare is not doing nearly as well as the

Tehran, Iran — A senior Iranian naval commander says his country has sent several warships to the Atlantic Ocean, close to U.S. maritime borders for the first time. The commander of Iran’s Northern Navy Fleet, Admiral Afshin Rezayee Haddad, is quoted by the official IRNA news agency as saying Saturday that the vessels have already begun the journey to the Atlantic Ocean via waters near South Africa. Iranian officials said last month that the fleet consisted of a destroyer and a logistic helicopter carrier, which will be on a three-month mission. Haddad says the fleet is approaching U.S. maritime borders for the first time.

SAN ANTONIO — We recommend incumbent John Cornyn for the GOP´s U.S. Senate nomination, based on unmatched experience and decades of service to Texas. The theme among a bevy of challengers seems to be that Cornyn is a CINO, a conservative in name only. This is not just counter-intuitive but counter-factual. Various ratings — liberal and conservative — have agreed on one thing, Cornyn´s conservative credentials are genuine. Not conservative?

President Obama has broken many promises. One that he has not broken is his boast that he would "fundamentally transform America." He and his fellow Democrats are on the verge of doing just that by turning us into a nation of loafers. A loafer is an idle person who lives off others. Barack Obama seemingly has no problem with such people. He might even relate to them. He does have a serious problem with his own work ethic, and finds work boring.
