The Worst Chemical Weapon Attack in Decades May Have Just Happened in Syria

Some the alleged casualties from the alleged chemical weapons attack.

Pro-opposition groups are claiming that a chemical attack this morning in a rebel-held suburb of Damascus killed, well, either “dozens” or “at least 100” or “more than 650” or 755 or “more than 1000” or 1,188 people. As always, it is difficult to pin down exactly what transpired, but videos allegedly from the scene “showed Syrians lying on the floor gasping for breath, medics struggling to save infants, and rows of bodies of those who had reportedly died in the attack,” Foreign Policy reports.

President Obama’s infamous “red line” warning to Syrian president Bashar Al-Assad took place almost exactly one year ago today.
