Obama Silent on Syrian Chemical Weapon Use

In the video above, President Obama promises dire consequences should Syria's Assad use chemical weapons.  Obama has been silent since such weapon use was reported on Christmas Day. 

Free Syrian Army official Louai Muqdad told Asharq al-Awsat: "The opposition recorded 18 separate cases of chemical weapons attacks in the outskirts of Damascus, Idlib, Homs and Hama."
He said Assad was using a new type of toxic gas and estimated that the Syrian regime had only recently obtained the new weapons.
Asharq al-Awsat further reported the commander of Syria's military police, Maj.-Gen. Abdulaziz al-Shalal, has defected and joined rebel forces.

Western Intelligence Sources Confirm Syria's Use of Paralyzing Chemical Agents
-Ron Ben-Yishai 

Over the past few months Syrian rebels have been reporting on the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime. A few weeks ago Western intelligence sources learned that the rebels' reports were accurate.

A close examination of footage and other material by experts in the West proved that the regime's army has in fact been using paralyzing chemical agents for a few months now against the rebels and civilians who support them.
