Dennis Kucinich may be out of office, but he's not out of the political scene. Since his departure from Congress, where he made a name for himself as one of the House's most liberal, anti-war members, Kucinich formed a political action committee, Kucinich Action. On Friday, Kucinich posted a new piece to Huffington Post in which he outlines the top ten unproven claims for war against Syria.
Before the Obama administration can declare war on Syria, Kucinich says they must answer the following questions:
Claim #1. The administration claims a chemical weapon was used.
The UN inspectors are still completing their independent evaluation.
Who provided the physiological samples of sarin gas on which your evaluation is based? Were any other non-weaponized chemical agents discovered or sampled?
Who from the United States was responsible for the chain of custody?
Where was the laboratory analysis conducted?
Were U.S. officials present during the analysis of the samples? Does your sample show military grade or lower grade sarin gas?
Can you verify that your sample matches the exact composition of the alleged Syrian government composition?
