him for the investigators to have access to it and then the sector to speak to me didn't proceed to damascus to negotiate with the government access to a code to dvd on the gop from the very beginning was expanded and we get experts to go ahead to investigate. it's a even go to this area and if he was not part of the agreement was signed between the second of three general is the most in yet because circumstances are after two days of negotiations that they would give us access to what is interested in investing in a sexist so we had our in the meantime plan for the texas so the minute we got the green i was to find politically. and that so that's the first time either he's ever going to have a new investigation of possible chemical weapons use. within four days it was very very fast. so everything was very fresh. between three hundred and fourteen hundred syrians are believed to have died in the chemical attacks

the syrian regime and the rebels were cleaning each other for western powers there was little doubt which i love socks forces were responsible for the attacks washington was forced to take action. back in the summer of twenty twelve for an obama had made the use of chemical weapons or red wine. that would dissuade them from using them. then in the fall of twenty twelve. he began moving them around. in the united states shifted its redline and said well it's not use or movement of chemical weapons test. he is and then. when he began using them. us chief its red line again. in the spring of twenty that twenty thirteen to systematic use. but then by august of twenty thirteen the number of incidents in the scale of the incidents clearly was systematic and in that triggered the red line after those attacks the prez invited me and senator graham to the oval office the city and three

objectives wants to upgrade the capabilities of the chilean army downgrade the capabilities by your side in doing was to change the momentum. on the battlefield. so that by your side no longer had the advantage unfortunately the president never mentioned that again. visit me was when he needed a medium shot and great humanitarian the committee needed to show serious blood on tv. ambling the syrian government were these massacres that have been here since they needed the text. the united states government and what other western governments got members of the opposition out of the country. and i and brought them outside to test them. we knew that chemical weapons were being used in syria. so took a few days to get some of the samples from the holdup out. and there the samples were matched with
7:09 am
the that the other evidence and that was as firm as evidence as the united states could come up with at that time. opinion in damascus in paris and washington was still haunted by the iraq debacle. ten years after the iraq war with the us want to launch another military intervention with no formal proof. at the time the u n inspectors have yet to confirm the use of chemical weapons in iraq is that those hanging in the room obviously nobody wants to the same thing again and natural understandable suspicion given that the circumstances on the surface seem somewhat similar to squeeze in the pacific events were told is the current regional suspicion that is what i told mrs cain suspicion. yet that's what i told dr songs that's what i've told everyone at the time restore peace. the iraqi sin are in store has a uniqueness to represent the so called united nations and the so called international community that need to do so don't fall into the trap of

being used shamelessly by syria's aggressors and pestle it's long been going i like the iraq war in syria the opposition and the government agreed on one thing chemical weapons were used on august twenty first and scores of series died in the attack. un inspectors confirmed that weeks later but did not see who had carried out the attack the inspectors limited mandate for them from identifying who was responsible. it starts with simple takes you back to the chemical weapons attack that took place in the tokyo subway. it was serendipitous use their ninety seven. i was of a killer for months there it's very pure form it evaporates very quickly. this is sara and that was used in the hotel attack was a lot more sophisticated meaning it's mixed destabilize us so it stays on the ground and no longer needing it affects more people. web intelligence agency had very little doubt they had a variety of
7:11 am
indicators first including a south poles and the nature of the bodies that were found there. the calculator i think the trajectory of the of the weapons and where they would coma from which within the government side not the rebel side. and they concluded just as a matter of logic that made that these were weapons that were in the hands of the government and that the rebels had nothing of that scale. when you have a lot of information to send the internet so you actually can do. things that did say twenty years ago you could not do simply because he didn't have access to information so it's no longer the domain of a sophisticated scientists put that way. i think they are people who it would be able to do it and i wouldn't say that's exclusive to the domain of the government dictating a while. i think the regime wanted to challenge your motives. due to some of you want. they would do whatever they want to know what the us
7:12 am
and send it to never cross the syrian military or political leaders markets will to use chemical weapons against our own people cooper. open book open. it's crazy. this does not make sense when it comes to toe you ask me again about where you stand. that's with the difficult crystal comes can yet be proved in court for years. no you cannot the tiny western capitals and of the pressure. the us deployed its military on the coast of syria. france announced it would take part in targeted strikes you know when the new leaving the mess that bush cheney. it's a scandal remain on onset. ross is ready to find space to make the final decision using gas is going against innocent people as a business i think you're ready to strike and targets and i know that other countries in

the region were ready to strike to say that it was taken very seriously by the military command in all the necessary measures were taken we would have retaliated with all the means at our disposal. just as western leaders were taking media by storm. sherman site focused on his communication nearly ten days after the attacks foreign journalists who had been kept out of the country were suddenly inflated in large numbers. the syrian president and his ministers granted an interview after interview to the foreign media the serious pr offensive succeed. or did the fear of the new iraq prevail. either way on the twenty ninth the british government voted against the military intervention dealing a serious blow to obama's plans on top suddenly you had a situation where ten years after the united states and france who ruptured over iraq summary france was our closest ally of france with the one we were. most in any
7:14 am
agreement on when it came to syria. the idea freedom fries and was out and down britain was the one we have felt abandoned by rather than france. adams said. of course anything can go to british rule and had an effect but united states doesn't follow that great anymore. british style of the united states barack obama himself i think is ambivalent about being involved in yet another middle east war. he takes a walk on them. south lawn of the white house's chief of staff denis mcdonough one night. you circle round around forty minutes talking it through. and as we comes up with the idea that i'm going to the congress and ask them to vote on this. will congress and in the country can sanction these things what are the sunshine there's something about the progression. because anything that doesn't fit into the framework of the un security council it is enough to progress to accept self defense. so delish. four days later barack obama met with
7:15 am
vladimir putin serious staunchest ally. despite the smiles the atmosphere at the scene petersburg g twenty summit was tense. the syrian war in the asylum granted to former nsa contractor edward snowdon were just some of the sensitive issues. but against all aunts a resolution to the crisis began to emerge. record cold the obama side on the sidelines of the g twenty meeting in a sit down a couple chairs and siren while their leaders are staring over watching them. in this conversation to raise the idea again of cooperation on securing serious to weapons. obama is a shorty skeptical or doesn't know what is a serious thing or not. they tell john kerry about it. kerry. it goes out and makes a statement a few days later his a press conference will look in syria due to avoid an attack she turned over every single bit of this chemical weapons to the international community in the next week. her head up

7:17 am
eastern ukraine as we speak the united states for america is on the wane. it was as high as according to the syrian opposition israel officially at war with damascus for the past eighteen years and it was also pushing for the us to accept the offer said the israelis would think of it and make sure the chemical weapons in we went to combat weapons on but wanted to ask the u s port the two games of the chemical weapons attack due to israeli president shimon grants said the syrians must give the chemical weapons. i may have to keep the story is great that week. cornwall i'm not in kenya for us to chemical weapons was at one single goal being said what did the rest of the subjects deterring the israelis in case they were thinking of using nuclear weapons against this sort of a team is in our new cat in a coffin. the us

7:19 am
think that they've disclose all of the region's that they will keep some as a deterrent against the rebels areas and reports of chemical weapons being used recently in which wouldn't surprise me but i think he was very slowly remove those chemicals weapons which he is starting slowly doing because he knows that there will be no attack on him as long as the chemical weapons were being moved so. it's it's one of the great tragedies the unwelcome consequences is that by the cooperated with the charlotte side to remove the weapons in effect the national community the united states and france are now in effect to call in bed with the eye with a side dish or lawson is very well to his usefulness to the united states europe and russia. and everyone else rapidly drops off after he delivers his chemical weapons after that he is just to
7:20 am
the most powerful warlord in syria. and therefore he plays for time as usual. i think it's a shame use the fact that they are removing chemical weapons as a reason not to try to help the people who are fighting and dying as we speak. a new front has now opened in syria. rebels are still fighting government forces. they are not still fighting to heidi's groups that are gaining ground the opposition says the charlotte side is claimed the islamist current strengthening these two parties groups to die for western attention to remain in power the acid regime going back to the hum a massacre of nineteen eighty two had always tried to paint all positioned to. the regime has on the foreign inspired jihadist uprising against the state. and he even made it to illegitimate. and it helped to fill this prophecy he released a number of

time at the same table as representatives of the opposition representatives that have so far been called terrorists by the syrian government. but the risk of fighting terrorism has wanted to agreeing with the political opposition is another. these are two parallel lines that do not cross hatched a scheme to open up one side cannot defeat the other militarily to have three sons are negotiated solution. but the problem is the ousted regime sees a transitional governing body in syria based on the reelection of president has led to a third term as president. yes that is until he was in high gear you holdleionsyou're a demrat conntn and everyone respects you despite the circumstaes rebound. orouod everyone will be on your case was when criticizing you for not holding either one of the tortilla
