Despite U.S. and British Eagerness for War, U.N. Inspectors Say Assad Didn’t Carry Out Chemical Attack

UN Repesentatives

The past few days in Syria have been filled with chemical weapons attacks and sniper fire on U.N. inspectors. The evidence continues to point to the Syrian opposition to the Assad regime.

According to the Washington Times, in recent months, “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,” the media outlet said, citing a senior U.N. diplomat.

The source seems to trace back to 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 it was in fact the Syrian rebels who had used the nerve agents in recent months.

According to the BBC, Ponte said that her panel had not seen any evidence of Syrian government forces using chemical weapons. Samples that were taken on site indicate that the sarin gas was “not industrial” quality, but was instead produced recently in “cottage industry” conditions, according to an 80-page report delivered to the UN secretary general, Ban Ki-moon.

This has been the precedence for months – that the chemical attacks seem to emanate from the Syrian opposition – so why should a new chemical attack be any different?
