Chemical Weapons Inspectors Denied Access To Site Of Suspected Gas Attack By Syrian And Russian Authorities

Reuters: Inspectors' visit to suspected Syria gas attack site delayed

DAMASCUS (Reuters) - A visit by chemical weapons inspectors to the site of a suspected gas attack in Syria was delayed on Monday, British and Russian officials said, as Western powers and Russia traded accusations in the aftermath of retaliatory U.S.-led missile strikes.

Moscow, the main ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, on Sunday condemned the United States, Britain and France for refusing to wait for the findings of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) inspection team on the alleged attack on Douma before they launched the strikes.

OPCW inspectors arrived in Damascus on Saturday and had planned to head to Douma, on the outskirts of the capital, on Monday. But the British delegation to the OPCW said Russia and Syria had not yet allowed inspectors access to Douma.

Why even bother with inspectors, Syria has already been attacked as a response so wtf is the point of having inspectors, they are most prob just spec ops operators anyways.

Jim. The critics are on President Trump and his lack of a strategy/end game on Syria. But the one who really does not have an exit strategy is Putin.
