Last August when President Obama announced the successful elimination of Syria’s chemical weapons arsenal, he went on the call on the Assad regime to “follow through on its promise to destroy remaining chemical weapons facilities.” At the same time, he stressed his concern “about omissions and discrepancies in Syria’s declaration to the organization that oversaw the destruction.” Earlier this month, however, Israeli defense experts said that Syria retained some of its WMD.
