Syria: Clarification needed on chemical weapons

September 9 2013 at 03:05pm

Geneva –

The UN human rights chief has told the 47-nation Human Rights Council that there is little doubt that chemical weapons were used in Syria, but she did not say which of the combatants was suspected of using them.

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay opened the council’s month-long session telling diplomats that “all the circumstances and responsibilities remain to be clarified.”

She added that the use of chemical weapons is “one of the gravest crimes that can be committed.”

The Geneva-based council is due to receive an update on Wednesday from its panel probing for war crimes and other human rights abuses in Syria, including the use of chemical weapons.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House asserted Sunday that a “common-sense test” dictates the Syrian government is responsible for a chemical weapons attack that President Barack Obama says demands a U.S. military response. But Obama’s top aide says the administration lacks “irrefutable, beyond-a-reasonable-doubt evidence” that skeptical Americans, including lawmakers who will start voting on military action this week, are seeking: here.

  3. Hello,
    You may want to view the Danish documentary “The War Campaign: How To Start A War” (on YouTube) and post it. It details the manipulations and lies of Bush, Cheney, Blair in the days before the human tragedy of the Iraq War. After you view it please post and ask your readers / fellow bloggers to do the same with commentary. Very powerful, relevant film which pertains to the Syria debate. Please help make the film viral.
    Thank you,
    Jerry
