Hagel: Syria has used Sarin gas against Rebels
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel says the Syrian regime has likely used chemical weapons on a “small scale.”
Hagel was speaking to reporters in Abu Dhabi. He says the White House has informed members of Congress that, within the last day, U.S. intelligence concluded with “some degree of varying confidence” that Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime has used chemical weapons — specifically sarin gas.
Hagel says, quote, “It violates every convention of warfare.”
