U.N. Official And Syrian Kurdish Leader: Assad Did Not Use Chemical Weapons

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Who is more deaf to global public opinion – Obama or Assad? Answer: Obama. Sources of photos: AP and Reuters.

First, the U.N. official. Her name is Carla del Ponte, the “former Chief Prosecutor of two United Nations international criminal law tribunals” (Wikipedia). She’s an attorney general from Switzerland, so you know she’s neutral.

Read the excerpt below from the article, “Syrian rebels used Sarin nerve gas, not Assad’s regime: U.N. official” by Shaun Waterman, published in The Washington Times on Monday, May 6, 2013:

Testimony from victims strongly suggests it was the rebels, not the Syrian government, that used Sarin nerve gas during a recent incident in the revolution-wracked nation, a senior U.N. diplomat said Monday.

Carla del Ponte, a member of the U.N. Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, told Swiss TV there were “strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof,” that rebels seeking to oust Syrian strongman Bashar al-Assad had used the nerve agent.

But she said her panel had not yet seen any evidence of Syrian government forces using chemical weapons, according to the BBC, but she added that more investigation was needed.

Damascus has recently facing growing Western accusations that its forces used such weapons, which President Obama has described as crossing a red line. But Ms. del Ponte’s remarks may serve to shift the focus of international concern.

The same false allegations against Assad that were flying around back in May were bound to resurface late in the summer. So the date of the article in no way diminishes its value as far as enlightening the world about who actually is willing and has the means to carry out a chemical weapons attack against Syrian civilians.

The Saudi-Turkish-Qatari-French-British-USraeli backed Al-Qaeda terrorists have everything to gain by framing Assad because they are currently losing the war and would see their fortunes reversed at least somewhat if the U.S. attacks Syria.

Saleh Muslim, Syria’s main Kurdish leader, says that Assad would be stupid to use chemical weapons against his own people in front of the eyes of the world, and that he has no motive to take this drastic step.

The Al-Qaeda terrorists are the most likely culprits, if in fact there is proof that chemical weapons have been used in Syria. 

Read the excerpt below from the article, “Syrian Kurdish leader says Assad not to blame for attack” by Alexandra Hudson, published by Reuters on Monday, August 26, 2013:

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad would not be “so stupid” as to use chemical weapons close to Damascus, the leader of the country’s largest Kurdish group said.

Saleh Muslim, head of the Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD), said he doubted the Syrian president would resort to using such weapons when he felt he had the upper hand in the country’s civil war.

He suggested last Wednesday’s attack, which the opposition says was carried out by government forces and killed hundreds of people, was aimed at framing Assad and provoking an international reaction. Assad has denied his forces used chemical weapons.

“The regime in Syria … has chemical weapons, but they wouldn’t use them around Damascus, 5 km from the (U.N.) committee which is investigating chemical weapons. Of course they are not so stupid as to do so,” Muslim told Reuters.

At the time of the incident, U.N. experts were already in Syria to investigate three previous alleged chemical attacks dating from months ago.
