Hopefully Putin doesn’t whip out incontrovertible proof the chemical gas attack was linked to Al Qaeda, Qatar… and the US of course.

Russia gives UN forensic proof rebels used chemical weapons in Syria

UNITED NATIONS, July 9 (Xinhua) — A day after Syria invited United Nations chemical weapons investigators to talks in Damascus, Russia said on Tuesday it had forensic proof that rebels have used a “lethal” sarin compound and handed its evidence to the UN team for inquiry.

Ambassador Vitaly Churkin, permanent representative of Russia to the United Nations, told reporters he submitted an analysis, ” certified by chemical weapons organizations,” in “80 pages of photographs, formulas and graphs” to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki- moon.

Churkin said sarin, a colorless, odorless liquid affecting the nervous system, was in a projectile fired by the opposition into the Khan al-Asal section of Aleppo on March 19. Some 200 people were killed in the attack.

Syria complained to the United Nations and requested an investigation.
