Syria Says Chemical Weapons Claims ‘Barefaced Lie’

US and British accusations that the regime in Damascus may have used chemical weapons are a “barefaced lie,” Syria’s information minister told Russian television Saturday.

“First of all, I want to confirm that statements by the US Secretary of State and British government are inconsistent with reality and a barefaced lie,” Omran al-Zohbi said in an interview published on the Kremlin-funded RT’s website.

United Nations chief Ban Ki-Moon has called on Syria to approve a UN mission of inspectors to probe the alleged use of chemical weapons in the spiralling two-year conflict.

But Zohbi told RT that the Syrian government could not trust UN inspectors from Britain and the US. “We do not trust the American and British experts from a political point of view,” Zobhi said. “We also do not trust their qualifications. Their aim is to juggle with facts.”

He added that the Syrian government would accept Russian inspectors.

1. I believe them (Syrian government)

and I'm glad the President seems to feel the same. This is nothing but the neo-cons and their press lackeys trying to get us into some more shit in the mid east.
