    •  Funny how they knew the UN inspectors (0+ / 0-)

      were coming.  It's almost as if a government minister had ordered his military to do this and given them the route and schedule of the convoy.

        Even my mother. And since it's a "rebel controlled" area that the convoy was driving into, they would be the first to know about the convoy's route, for several reasons. One being that rebel groups are our/UN's primary contacts in all parts of Syria(not to go too overboard in stating the obvious or anything).

        Another obvious point being the Syrian army is in stand down mode in that immediate area, so anyone unscrupulous playing about in the buffer zone may have an advantage. There are several other players who would stand to lose, if the chem attack were proven to be opposition related, or even if this were all some horrible accident e.g. some insecticide stockpile being hit during a pitched battle with the Syrian army.

        I for one can't trust this evidence they claim to have acquired...how? Before the UN team even arrived. This leaves the only possibility as something being spirited out by a jihadi merc or some shady Special Forces guy. Puhlease.
