L'incidente di Goutha 28.08.132013-08-12:05:01
Le intercettazioni di telefonate tra reparti dell'esercito siriano che secondo l'intelligence americana proverebbero il coinvolgimento del regime di Damasco nell'uso di armi chimiche contro la popolazione civile siriana di Goutha.
Last Wednesday, in the hours after a horrific chemical attack east of Damascus, an official at the Syrian Ministry of Defense exchanged panicked phone calls with a leader of a chemical weapons unit, demanding answers for a nerve agent strike that killed more than 1,000 people. Those conversations were overheard by U.S. intelligence services, The Cable has learned. And that is the major reason why American officials now say they're certain that the attacks were the work of the Bashar al-Assad regime -- and why the U.S. military is likely to attack that regime in a matter of days.
