Russia releases 100-page report blaming
Syrian rebels for a chemical weapons attack

McClatchy Newspapers, by Matthew Schofield

BERLIN — Russia has released a 100-page report detailing what it says is evidence that Syrian rebels, not forces loyal to President Bashar Assad, were behind a deadly sarin gas attack in an Aleppo suburb earlier this year. The report, which includes numerous tables and charts said to chronicle the scientific analysis of samples reportedly taken from the site of the attack, was posted on the Russian Foreign Ministry’s website late Wednesday. Russian officials said the report had been delivered to the United Nations in July. Russia said its investigation of the March 19 incident was conducted under strict protocols established

If true, maybe Barry should consider bombing the rebels.

After the hearings Wednesday, there is cause for even more suspicion of Obama and crew´s spin: A democrat(surprise) pressed Hagel for the transcript of the alleged radio interception of Assad´s military command discussing their alleged attack on civilians. Hagel did all sorts of manuevering to get out of it and finally blurted out it he didn´t know of any such transcripts and besides it was "probably classified". ha ha ha ha. slippery as slippery can be. The administrations "evidence" is all so subjective and more like "just trust us" which isn´t a practical idea.

These politicians are misleading and when cornered come out fighting like rabid, wounded animals, as Kerry did to Mr Duncan of SC when challenged. Ditto Hagel-hostile.

It has never made sense that Assad would use chemical weapons on the "rebels" when he was already winning the battle and even he would understand how those weapons would look to the rest of the civilized world, especially the U.S. The "rebels" on the other hand need OUR help in defeating Assad and Iran would be grateful for the assist because THEY want to replace Assad with one of their own. It doesn´t take a genius to figure out what is going on. BTW, obama and kerry continue to talk about the enormous amounts of "evidence" against Syria.....where is it?? Haven´t seen it yet.

I wonder if the chemical weapons attack might have been pulled off by the Syrian rebels in order to have the USA come in and help them.

# 6 - I posted the same comment over a week ago. Reports had been showing the ´rebels´ were losing against Assad. It would not benefit him to slaughter only a few people. The numbers would have been much higher in casualties.
Until obama´s Arab Spring, there was not unrest inside Syria. Syria is the continuation of the Arab Spring. Obama thought to help his muslim brotherhood take over all of the Middle East and beyond. The ultimate goal is the USA. Look how many muslims he has in his administration.
Look at what has happened to our economy under his dictates. Name one program or activity he has taken since being in the Oval Office which has benefited the USA and its people. Look what he has done world wide to break the bonds between countries.

What is the reason behind his wearing a ring, pictures of it when he was at Occidental, using it as his wedding band to moooochie and wearing it now that says, ALLAH IS GREAT?

I would like for just ONE reporter to ask about that ring to see what his comment might be.

It would be fraudulent if Obama failed to disclose that rebels have used gas themselves. We could well be on the wrong side even with Assad being Assad. Either way, no good is done and life and liberty are less not more.

Picture over at Drudge this morning of Rebels executing prisoners. Shot in the head for show. Gee UN, isn´t that against all international agreements and laws. The Syrian Rebels are also shooting Christians and burning their villages.

I´m going to state this again. The Rebels have sarin gas, they have been caught with cylinders of the stuff, and they use anything they can get their hands on to kill people. These sadists are terrorists, the same type of radicals who killed 3,000 of our people on 911. They will do it again if given the chance.

Why the hell is any President or Congress even considering helping them kill more people. They are thugs and killers. They have a history of spreading chaos in any country they can. Helping them is madness.

Obama occupies the White House as a usurper sent there to create the Caliphate using American muscle and military.

Obama is the Guilty Party behind the chemical weapons attacks.

Arab Spring is about surrounding Israel with truly fanatic Muslim jihadists, instead of Nations that merely threaten Israel. The new Obama Caliphate is going to go after Israel with everything they´ve got.

That is the End Game.

The key issue is whether the Sarin gas was released by al-Qaeda as seems most likely, or Assad. After that, what do we want to achieve with the next Syrian government. I we bomb we own it. How do we get out of it? There are two million Christians in Syria who will be killed by the Sunni Muslims.

At least Russia has done some bare research
Let them all fight amongst themselves. We must STAY OUT. There is no gain, only death maiming and loss of mental health. Our 24/7 bribed, Congressional war machine must shut the hell up and go back to their greedy specialty: the $ waste of domestic theft. McCain´s "Alluh Akbar" quote ON TV, is the height of a crazed ignorant old man who epitomizes stupidity and the destruction of staying in office forever. AND of a lap dog press tht did not ridicule his supidity.
And FoxTV, our supposed ideological friend, interviews this tired-out corrupted old man almost every hour. McCain, Rubio, Schumer, Puglosi, Durbin, Reid, Feinstein, Boxer, these guys are all terrifying people. RINOS and plain outright Marxists, melding all together, as one. In unison, all pushing for more power over the people, more power for the federal government (Ayn Rand would call it The State). They´re all
"in on it" together. It´s so sick, they rarely argue with each other.

Just war gaming in a fog of disinformation... If I was in Iran I´d be checking the charcoal filters in my bomb shelter.

I´m still sitting here unsure if there was even a chemical attack. Did anyone actually see these victims buried? All I saw were motionless people (on drugs?) in body bags with slits over their noses.

Meanwhile, Russia apparently has intel that we plan to take out a nuclear reactor in Syria. Didn´t anyone know about this reactor before it became operational? I can´t believe Israel didn´t take it out before now.

On the other front, while the world is focused on our naval buildup in the Mediterranean and Red Sea, Iran may be watching the runway at our base on Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean.

I´m completely in the dark but it´s possible that red lines are involved, just not Obama´s. If this comes to pass, as I idly postulate, Obama will come out of this a hero. Not a pretty sight.

Opinion: Obama really doesn´t want to harm Assad. This is all for show. Bombing Syria hurts Hezbollah and IRAN. Obama doesn´t want to harm them either.

Obama DOES WANT to harm Israel. He WANTS to see Iranian nukes annihilate Israel.

#8 is correct. The Arab Spring will continue as long as Obama is President. In Egypt, radicals tried deception in order to take power, but they were routed once their plan to radicalize the country was figured out.
The Syrian rebels are using the ´95 Bosnian/Serb playbook to get outside assistance in their attempt to radicalize Syria. They will not stop until the entire Middle East is one big Sharia Union.
I believe Russia´s report, even if it´s dated.

Russsia wants Assad in powere because they run natural gas lines thru to Europe. The corp is Gazprom. Gerhard Schroeder, Germany´s past Chancellor works for Gazprom.
Meanwhile Qatar and Saudi Arabia want Assad gone and apuppet in his place. So theycan run their gas lines thru Syria. Syria is on the Med. Tankers could transport to Europe which would drop hi prices pd to Soiets. This has been a complaint of the Europeans- hi prices.
QATAR bank-rolls the Syrian insurgents. Saudi kicks in some dough too.-

Why should Obama, Kerry, Pelosi, et al. waste the time to read a 100-page report when they already ´know´ Assad was behind the attacks?

Like they didn´t bother reading the 2000-page Obamacare legislation, because they already ´knew´ it would make sure everybody was covered and would cost substantially less than the current system.... Oh, and because big parts of that bill still hadn´t been written yet... never mind.

Even if this report references an earlier attack it proves that the "rebels" had these weapons and used them. They are the worst kind of radicals and very capable and willing to use any means in their power including deception through the killing of children. We are being led into an ambush and McCain and ms. lindsey are holding hands skipping and singing as we go.

Do I believe everything Russia says - no; everything Syria says - no; anything muslim bros say - no; anything Obama says - no!!!

There is a way to know if the rebels gassed their own people for a "higher cause".
Did any rebel leaders or imams die in the gas that was released, or where they located at a safe distance?
Might the muslim bros consider this a mass, albeit involuntary version of suicidal attacks for Allah?

True #12 this does refer to an earlier attack but clearly the point being made is that if they did it before they could do it again. Obama´s and Kerry´s and the NYT´s evidence consists of a process of elimination . . . they speculate no one else had those chemicals except Assad so it must have been Assad. Here the Russians have presented every bit as strong evidence that the rebels had chemicals and have used them. That reduces Obama and Kerry to having a strong suspicion but really, really wanting to attack Syria. Their motives need to be investigated.

Two years before the Boston Marathon bombing, the Russian government concealed key information on one of the killers that might have thwarted the attack, a new report charges.Kremlin officials intercepted a phone conversation in which Tamerlan Tsarnaev discussed Islamic jihad with his mother, but they withheld the information from the FBI, according to the U.S. inspector general report that comes as the one-year anniversary of the bombing approaches. Had the FBI been privy to the red-flag phone call, it would have prompted the bureau to take an extensive look at Tsarnaev, according to The New York Times. “Had they known what the

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this
