Kerry has a no-pair hand and is acting as if he is holding a royal flush.
"Kerry reasserts Syria charge despite Assad denial," by Deb Riechmann for the Associated Press, September 9:
Secretary of State John Kerry said Monday that Syrian President Bashar Assad could resolve the crisis surrounding his purported use of chemical weapons by turning "every single bit" of his arsenal over to the international community by the end of the week.
But Kerry, who joined British Foreign Secretary William Hague at a news conference in London, said he didn't expect Assad to do that.
In a strong rebuttal to remarks by Assad, Kerry said there is very compelling evidence that the Syrian regime used chemical weapons against his own people.
In an interview by Charlie Rose, slated to air Monday on CBS "This Morning," Assad argued that the evidence Kerry has disclosed about chemical weapons use amounts to a "big lie" that resembles the case for war in Iraq that then-Secretary of State Colin Powell made to the United Nations over a decade ago.
Asked to respond, Kerry told reporters in London that he would be confident to take evidence that the U.S. intelligence committee has gathered into any courtroom.
"What does he offer?" Kerry asked rhetorically of Assad. "Words that are contradicted by fact."
What fact? They've even admitted they don't have evidence.
