The report did not mention Islamic State, as the fact-finding mission was not mandated to assign blame, but diplomatic sources said the chemical had been used in the clashes between Islamic State and another rebel group taking place in the town at the time.


"It raises the major question of where the sulfur mustard came from," one source said. "Either they (IS) gained the ability to make it themselves, or it may have come from an undeclared stockpile overtaken by IS. Both are worrying options."

Sucks for those involved but not as concerning to me as frozen vaginas.

But, but.....Russia made sure Assad got rid of all his chemical weapons. John Kerry said so.

Yeah, I'm sure those mutts figured out how to make chemical agents. Old stockpile from Iraq . Can't wait for them to use it on the Russians (and not us). That, and the plane, should make them really angry.

You can get them by the bag now if you don't mind imports.

Syrian rebels? Isn't that the side we are supporting? If so between this and the jet downing it looks like Russia is more justified to be there than we are. It seems a little convenient. It also seems like the situation over there is a clusterfuck of biblical promotions.

"Fact finders" who aren't there to "assign blame." Because pointing out who used the gas would be...too factual.

Man 1: Ello. I am Hans Obershortser. I am a FACT FINDER! My job is to FIND FACTS! I am velly velly important and well paid!

Man 2: Yes, hello. My name is Burl Smedlington. I'm an idiot finder. I find idiots. Hold still while I take your picture, please.

All it takes is an undergraduate level organic chemistry textbook and the chemical name and you're in business.

As I recall, ISIS took some refineries in Iraq a while back.  All they need is there.

The report doesn't name ISIS directly, but they were used by ISIS against the FSA (Syrian rebels.)

Or even better, a pesticide plant.

Isis seizes former chemical weapons plant in Iraq

According to the report, bunker 41 contained 2,000 empty 155mm artillery shells contaminated with the chemical warfare agent mustard, 605 one-tonne mustard containers with residues, and heavily contaminated construction material. It said the shells could contain mustard residues that cannot be used for chemical warfare but remain highly toxic.

Did that cross zero's 'red line'?  Not that the little pole smoker would do anything about it.

Maybe it was more Iraq weapons the left say don't exist



Chemical weapons discovered in Iraq; Washington Post says they don’t count
