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.
