    The questions the Obama administration needs to answer before Congress can even consider voting on Syria:

    Claim #1. The administration claims a chemical weapon was used.

    The UN inspectors are still completing their independent evaluation.

    Who provided the physiological samples of sarin gas on which your evaluation is based? Were any other non-weaponized chemical agents discovered or sampled?

    Who from the United States was responsible for the chain of custody?

    Where was the laboratory analysis conducted?

    Were U.S. officials present during the analysis of the samples? Does your sample show military grade or lower grade sarin gas?

    Can you verify that your sample matches the exact composition of the alleged Syrian government composition?

    Claim #2: The administration claims the opposition has not used chemical weapons.

    Which opposition?

    Are you speaking of a specific group, or all groups working in Syria to overthrow President Assad and his government?

    Has your administration independently and categorically dismissed the reports of rebel use of chemical weapons which have come from such disparate sources as Russia, the United Nations, and the Turkish state newspaper?

    Have you investigated the rumors that the Saudis may have supplied the rebels with chemicals that could be weaponized?

    Has the administration considered the ramifications of inadvertently supporting al Qaeda-affiliated Syrian rebels?

    Was any intelligence received in the last year by the U.S. government indicating that sarin gas was brought into Syria by rebel factions, with or without the help of a foreign government or intelligence agents?

    Claim #3: The administration claims chemical weapons were used because the regime’s conventional weapons were insufficient

    Who is responsible for the conjecture that the reason chemical weapons were used against the Damascus suburbs is that Assad’s conventional weapons were insufficient to secure “large portions of Damascus”?

    Claim #4: The administration claims to have intelligence relating to the mixing of chemical weapons by regime elements

    Who saw the chemical weapons being mixed from August 18th on?

    Was any warning afforded to the Syria opposition and if not, why not?

    If, on August 21st a “regime element” was preparing for a chemical weapons attack, has an assessment been made which could definitively determine whether such preparation (using gas masks) was for purpose of defense, and not offense?

    Further reading: McClatchy report; Brown Moses blog

    Claim #5: The administration claims intelligence that Assad’s brother ordered the attack

    What is the type of and source of intelligence which alleges that Assad’s brother personally ordered the attack?

    Who made the determination that Assad’s brother ordered the attack, based on which intelligence, from what source?

    Claim #6: The administration claims poison gas was released in a rocket attack

    Who was tracking the rocket and the artillery attack which preceded the poison gas release?

    Did these events occur simultaneously or consecutively?

    Could these events, the rocket launches and the release of poison gas, have been conflated?

    Based upon the evidence, is it possible that a rocket attack by the Syrian government was aimed at rebels stationed among civilians and a chemical weapons attack was launched by rebels against the civilian population an hour and a half later?

    Is it possible that chemical weapons were released by the rebels — unintentionally?

    Explain the 90-minute time interval between the rocket launch and chemical weapon attacks.

     

    Has forensic evidence been gathered at the scene of the attack which would confirm the use of rockets to deliver the gas?

    If there was a rocket launch would you supply evidence of wounds from the rockets impact and explosion? What is the source of the government’s analysis?

    If the rockets were being tracked via “geospatial intelligence,” what were the geospatial coordinates of the launching sites and termination locations?

    Claim #7: The administration claims 1,429 people died in the attack

    Secretary Kerry claimed 1,429 deaths, including 426 children. From whom did that number first originate?

    Further reading: McClatchy report

    Claim #8: The administration has made repeated references to videos and photos of the attack as a basis for military action against Syria

    When and where were the videos taken of the aftermath of the poison gas attack?

    Further reading: FAIR.org report

    Claim #9: The administration claims a key intercept proves the Assad regime’s complicity in the chemical weapons attack

    Will you release the original transcripts in the language in which it was recorded as well as the translations relied upon to determine the nature of the conversation allegedly intercepted?

    What is the source of this transcript? What was the exact time of the intercept? Was it a U.S. intercept or supplied from a non-U.S. source?

    Have you determined the transcripts’ authenticity? Have you considered that the transcripts could have been doctored or fake?

    Was the “senior official,” whose communications were intercepted, a member of Assad’s government?

    How was he “familiar” with the offensive? Through a surprised acknowledgement that such an attack had taken place? Or through actual coordination of said attack? Release the transcripts!

    Was he an intelligence asset of the U.S., or our allies? In what manner had he “confirmed” chemical weapons were used by the regime?

    Who made the assessment that his intercepted communications were a confirmation of the use of chemical weapons by the regime on August 21st?

    What is the source of information that the Syrian chemical weapons personnel were “directed to cease operations”?

    Is this the same source who witnessed regime officials mixing the chemicals?

    Does the transcript indicate whether the operations they were “directed to cease” were related to ceasing conventional or chemical attacks?

    Will you release the transcripts and identify sources of this claim?

    Do you have transcripts, eyewitness accounts or electronic intercepts of communications between Syrian commanders or other regime officials which link the CW attack directly to President Assad?

    Who are the intelligence officials who made the assessment — are they U.S. intelligence officials or did the initial analysis come from a non-U.S. source?

    Further reading: FAIR.org report and AP story; Washington Post editorial

    Claim #10: The administration claims that sustained shelling occurred after the chemical weapons attack in order to cover up the traces of the attack

    Please release all intelligence and military assessments as to the reason for the sustained shelling, which is reported to have occurred after the chemical weapons attack.

    Who made the determination that was this intended to cover up a chemical weapon attack? Or was it to counterattack those who released chemicals?

    How does shelling make the residue of sarin gas disappear?

    The American people have a right to a full release and vetting of all facts before their elected representatives are asked to make a decision of great consequence for America, Syria and the world. Congress must be provided answers prior to the vote, in open hearings, not in closed sessions where information can be manipulated in the service of war. We’ve been there before. It’s called Iraq.

cause of mode shows Color SchemeWhen planning a color coordinated outfit, start by identifying the base color. This will be the core color in your outfit and will make up the largest pieces. When choosing the dominant color of your outfit, carefully consider how it will look next to your skin tone. I am ALWAYS looking out for new, or better ways to cook or bake, and I enjoy getting new recipes online, or in old cookbooks from the second hand bookstore here in town. ;O( But that did not deter me from attempting Emeril's Old Fashioned New York Style Cheesecake. I needed to make a better covering next time for the pan. It is confused by men why women love handbags? It seems impossible to slove this problem, but after interview some ladies and summary what they said, we know the reason. Handbags finish the look of every outfit. As a matter of fact, the amount of things a woman carries along with her, goes on to let us in on her character and reveals a whole lot of things about her; the same way her outfit gives away her feelings and personality. Then you have to try on both outfits. Compare and even take pictures of each other to see how the look is turning out. Chances are that you will love the experience and want to make dress up games the only way you really shop.. Hollywood often likes to think of itself as an agent of social progress, and occasionally the film industry really can help bring audiences to a higher state of mutual tolerance and understanding for example, the rise of Sidney Poitier in the 1960s. Jake Gyllenhaal in Prince of Persia (2010)However you feel about Gyllenhaal, one thing is for sure: He ain no Persian. Nonetheless, he certainly not the first white actor to be cast in a distinctly non white starring role. Having nails removed. If you decide to have your acrylic nails removed, the best way to do this is to go back to the salon and have them soak the acrylic off. They have a solution that will dissolve the acrylic. It's Joylyn Everett with my lovely assistant Bridget for Expert Village in beautiful Malibu, California. Now I'm going to talk about Goth Punk. As you know, Goth punk is pretty much wearing black. Most locations used for Haddonfield were located in South Pasadena and, while pains were taken to omit as many signs of its actual geography, several palm trees can be spotted in the distance of certain wide shots. Access to normal Halloween time fare proved frustrating for the crew since pumpkins were not in season on the west coast and there were certainly no fallen leaves (which are sparse even when it is October). Their solution was importing bags of leaves from out of state and painting Mexican gourds with orange paint to achieve the look of seasonal jack o lanterns.pornhub
