The rebels used sarin on March 19th. The UN documented this. Sarin is produced by using 2 widely available flame retardant chemicals, sodium fluoride, and alcohol. Turkey seems to catch rebels with these every few months. Please, John, you may sound self-assured in Washington, but no one else buys your "incredulous" tone. While you're at it, could you explain why the CW "proof" comes from the White House, not the intelligence agencies?

I voted for John for President but he's beginning to remind me of Colin Powell telling the UN about WMDs.

"The rebels used sarin on March 19th. The UN documented this..... While you're at it, could you explain why the CW "proof" comes from the White House, not the intelligence agencies?" -- the proof comes from the U.N. inspectors... the same inspectors you trusted from the March attack
