What's the evidence of Syrian chemical weapons attack?

By Josh Levs

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry calls it proof "beyond any reasonable doubt." Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel says it's "very clear."

President Barack Obama says the United States has "high confidence" that Syria used chemical weapons - the strongest position the U.S. can take short of confirmation.

Britain, France, and Germany say their intelligence backs up the same conclusion.

But Russia has rejected those claims, insisting there's no such proof. Russian President Vladimir Putin said he wants to see evidence that would make the determination "obvious."

    Wait for confirmation, we've been lied to enough. Then work with U. N. peace keeping forces. America needs to stop wasting it's resources on non citizens.

      Remember GWB's "proof"? Some CIA agent talked to an Iraqi taxi driver who told of numerous WMD's hidden in the desert! This was their "proof"!!! I am happy that Obama is just a little bit smarter! Yet we still have no real proof that Assad did this, it could have been the rebels! NO PROOF, NO WAR! Have our CIA agents talked to any Syrian taxi drivers lately?

    many people saw Assad walked around in gas mask in a fancy dress party; is that not good enough?

      All kidding aside Phunnie boy, there is no true evidence that the Assad regime ever gassed it's own people. Even if he did, we still have no right to murder 15 to 20,000 more Syrians with those ungodly Tomahawk missiles. Unfortunately, there's not a thing that any of us can do about it except to watch the whole sickening thing unfold in disgust!!!
