"If the Syrian government had nothing to hide and wanted to prove to the world that it had not used chemical weapons in this incident, it would have ceased its attacks on the area and granted immediate access to the U.N. five days ago," a senior White House official said.
"At this juncture, the belated
decision by the regime to grant access to the U.N. team is too late to
be credible, including because the evidence available has been
significantly corrupted as a result of the regime's persistent shelling
and other intentional actions over the last five days," the official

killed or injured and other information—"there is very little doubt at
this point that a chemical weapon was used by the Syrian regime against
civilians in this incident."
