BREAKING Why Didn't the Obama Admin Give Warming About the Chemical Attack

If the intelligence services knew ahead of Assad's plans to gas his people, why didn't they give warming, Dutch General Dick Berlijn is wondering in a tweet

Secretary of State John Kerry's Statement at 4.05 minutes on Friday August 31, 2013

"We know that for three days before the attack the regime's chemical weapons personnel were on the ground, in the area, making preparations. And we know that the Syrian regime elements were prepared by putting on gas masks and taking precautions associated with chemical weapons. We know that these were specific instructions.  We know where the rockets were launched from, and at what time. 

"We know where they landed and when. We know rockets came only from regime controlled areas and went only to opposition controled or contested neighborhoods."

"And we know as does the world, that just 90 minutes later all hell broke lose on the social media. With our own eyes we have seen  thousands of reports from eleven different sites in de Damascus suburbs, all show and report victims with breathing difficulties, people twitching with spasms, coughing, rapid heart beats, foaming at the mouth, unconscious and dead. We know it was ordinary Syrian citizens who reported all of these horrors."

"And as important, we know the doctors and nurses that treated them didn't report, not a scratch, not a shrapnel wound, not a cut, not a gunshot wound. We saw rows of dead lined up in burial shrouds, the white linen unstained by a single drop of blood."

"Instead of being tucked safely in their beds at home we saw rows of children lying side by side, sprawled on a hospital floor, all of them dead from Assad's gas and surrounded by parents and grandparents who suffered the same fate."

"The US Government now knows that at least 1,429 Syrians were killed in this attack, including at least 426 children....


Why didn't America warn if they saw that the Syrians were making preparations to deploy chemical weapons?
