I decided to put this blog together in regards to conflicting statements on news reports regarding Syria and the use of Chemical Weapons as well as the new UN Resolution condemning the atrocities by the Assad Regime and stepping down, and requesting unrestricted access to report on chemical weapon use.

France24: Syrian Rebels used sarin gas says UN’s Del Ponte
Syria rebels reject UN chemical weapons claim
Free Syrian Army leader says UN investigator’s claim that his group is likely to have used sarin is a “huge injustice”.
The rebel Free Syrian Army (FSA) has rejected claims by UN investigators that it is likely to have used chemical weapons.
Carla Del Ponte, a leading UN human rights investigator, said on Sunday that a UN commission of inquiry had gathered testimony from casualties of the civil war and medical staff indicating that rebel forces had used the nerve agent sarin.
Speaking to Al Jazeera on Monday, Saleem Edris, FSA chief of staff, said he considered the remarks a “huge injustice” and “provocation” to the Syrian people.
Del Ponte, a member of the UN Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, also said that the inquiry had not yet seen evidence of government forces having used chemical weapons, which are banned under international law.
“Our investigators have been in neighbouring countries interviewing victims, doctors and field hospitals and, according to their report of last week which I have seen, there are strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof of the use of sarin gas, from the way the victims were treated,” she said in an interview with Swiss-Italian television.
“This was use on the part of the opposition, the rebels, not by the government authorities,” she added.

ok so compare these reports to the now current UN Rhetoric on Syria. I am guessing Israel and USA didnt like what Del Ponte had to say. Also, i have seen NO Coverage of the above UN statements regarding rebels use of chemical weapons on mainstream Australian News (nor did i expect to considering they are heavily censored and mainly tools of propaganda).
