    answer they would have Kerry say.

    It is shoddy journalism to headline this as John Kerry gives Syria week to hand over chemical weapons or face attack and never mention that there was a question involved and that Kerry never said we would attack in a week if Assad did not hand over the weapons. He said in response to a reporter's question that there would be no attack if Assad handed over his weapons. If you can't tell the difference, then your critical thinking skills are sorely lacking.

    Want another example of misleading journalism? Here's a link from that page on the Guardian to another of their stories Assad did not order Syria chemical weapons attack, says German press.  Besides the headline, it  spends 4 paragraphs saying that Assad did not order chemical weapons attacks before finally in paragraph number 5 saying

    But the intercepts tended to add weight to the claims of the Obama administration and Britain and France that elements of the Assad regime, and not renegade rebel groups, were responsible for the attack in the suburb of Ghouta, Bild said.
    So you tell me, which is the headline -Assad did not order Syria chemical weapons attack or Assad military responsible for chemical weapons attack? Why do they want you to think one thing and only 5 paragraphs into the article actually admit that the evidence is that the Assad government is responsible?
