the government’s assessment of the “Syrian Government’s Use of Chemical Weapons on August 21, 2013.” It is exactly as expected, putting the full blame on Assad.

What however is absolutely mindblowing is the following:

“We have identified one hundred videos attributed to the attack, many of which show large numbers of bodies exhibiting physical signs consistent with, but not unique to, nerve agent exposure. The reported symptoms of victims included unconsciousness, foaming from the nose and mouth, constricted pupils, rapid heartbeat, and difficulty breathing. Several of the videos show what appear to be numerous fatalities with no visible injuries, which is consistent with death from chemical weapons, and inconsistent with death from small-arms, high-explosive munitions or blister agents. At least 12 locations are portrayed in the publicly available videos, and a sampling of those videos confirmed that some were shot at the general times and locations described in the footage. We assess the Syrian opposition does not have the capability to fabricate all of the videos, physical symptoms verified by medical personnel and NGOs, and other information associated with this chemical attack.”

In other words, America may be about to launch World War III on the basis of one hundred videos, which it believes “the Syrian opposition does not have the capability to fabricate.”

But until the missiles are fired and the bombs dropped, it is still possible to stop the war before it starts. It is critically important that all those who oppose a new war and who are demonstrating today, stay in the streets over this crucial weekend. What people do can make a difference!

More than 100 lawmakers, including 21 De

More than 100 lawmakers, including 21 Democrats, have signed a letter that says President Obama would violate the Constitution by striking Syria without first getting authorization from Congress.

A total of 140 lawmakers had signed the letter as of Thursday, highlighting bipartisan interest and growing momentum in ensuring a role for Congress in any decision to use force in Syria. The letter has yet to be sent to the White House.

“Engaging our military in Syria when no direct threat to the United States exists and without prior congressional authorization would violate the separation of powers that is clearly delineated in the Constitution,” states the letter, spearheaded by Rep. Scott Rigell (R-Va.)
