France Accuses Syrian Regime of Multiple Chlorine Gas Attacks – Jay Solomon
(dailyalert.org, May 15, 2014)

French foreign minister Laurent Fabius said his government has evidence the Syrian government used chemical agents, largely chlorine, in at least 14 separate attacks against rebels and civilians in recent months. Fabius also said the U.S., France and UK erred last summer by setting aside planned military strikes on the Damascus regime designed to erode its air power and missile capabilities. “We regret this….We believe it would have changed many things.”

However, a senior U.S. official said the agreement reached in September with Syria was more effective than a military operation as it resulted in Damascus giving up 92% of its chemical weapons stockpile. “There is no evidence that strikes would have allowed us to remove that amount of chemical weapons,” the official said.
