Oh, sure! (Commentary down below.)
From the article:
Barack Obama has said the Assad’s regime use of chemical weapons would be a “game changer” that could trigger a US military response, and Wednesday’s letter restated that position.
- US says Syria may have used sarin gas in chemical weapons (Guardian April 25, 2013):
White House sends nuanced letter to Congress saying it has ‘various amounts of confidence’ in reliability of evidence
US intelligence has found evidence that sarin gas, a chemical weapon, has been used in Syria on a small scale, the White House has said .
However, in a letter to Congress the administration made it clear that it did not believe that the evidence was conclusive, saying it only had “varying amounts of confidence” in its reliability. Nor did the evidence prove beyond any doubt that the Syrian government had been responsible for using sarin, though this was “very likely” to be the case.
Later, the US secretary of state, John Kerry, said that chemical weapons were believed to have been used in two separate attacks.
