Syria 'chemical weapons' crisis: LIVE UPDATES

Syrian rebels used Sarin nerve gas, not Assad’s regime: U.N. official  (From a Washington Times article. Why is this not being covered in the mainstream media?)

"Recent News of a Chemical Weapons Attack in Syria Smacks of Desperation" (a little biased, but brings forth some important questions, and some really good points)

"Testimony from victims strongly suggests it was the rebels, not the Syrian government, that used Sarin nerve gas during a recent incident in the revolution-wracked nation, a senior U.N. diplomat said Monday.

Carla del Ponte, a member of the U.N. Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, told Swiss TV there were “strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof,” that rebels seeking to oust Syrian strongman Bashar al-Assad had used the nerve agent.

But she said her panel had not yet seen any evidence of Syrian government forces using chemical weapons, according to the BBC, but she added that more investigation was needed."
