Obama Rejects Syrian Offer for Inspection, Calling to ‘Too Late’

The Obama administration has rejected Syria’ belated offer for the United Nations to inspect the site of a chemical weapons attack last week, saying the evidence already has disappeared, The Wall Street Journal reported.

The quick rejection of the Syrian offer, officially made only hours earlier, are a clear indication that President Barack Obama is ready to act against the Assad regime and perhaps regain its standing as a world leader if it can put a stop to the genocide in Syria.

“If the Syrian government had nothing to hide and wanted to prove to the world that it had not used chemical weapons in this incident, it would have ceased its attacks on the area and granted immediate access to the U.N. five days ago,” the Journal quoted a senior Obama administration official as saying.

The same anonymous official said earlier in the day that there is “little doubt” that Assad’s regime, and not rebels, were behind the chemical attack, apparently nerve gas, which killed anywhere between 300 to more than 1,000 men, women and children.

Nevertheless, U.N. officials plan to inspect the scene of the attack on Monday.

    what a baby. he gets what he wants but now he has to hold on to his earlier point of view. Too late? Someds like something out of the beginning of world war 1 in 1914.

  2. Obama should keep out of Syria. All he wants is for his Alquaeda friends to win.

  3. Cody Flecker says:

    I am sure that all of the Jews who voted for Obama are now happy that their Messiah will wage a war against Syria, anything to divert attention away from his economic policies including ObamaCare. If Israel gets destroyed by rockets and anything else, just like Hillary said" What difference does it make anyway".

  4. Joseph Sanchez says:

    DON'T BE SAD, THIS IS JUST BIBLE PROPHECY COME TRUE, AGAIN!
    Damascus will become a heap of rubble!
    BUT DON'T FRET< WW3 IS JUST DOWN THE ROAD< A LITTLE SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE!

  5. Marc S Weintraub says:

    @David, the first paragraph explains it all to anyone who takes the time to read it:
    “The Obama administration has rejected Syria’ belated offer for the United Nations to inspect the site of a chemical weapons attack last week, saying the evidence already has disappeared, The Wall Street Journal reported.”
    The chemical residue remains traceable for a very limited time. By delaying the inspection, Assad improves the chance that the investigation will be inconclusive. BTW, The UN intends to conduct an inspection anyway.
