‘Are you kidding me?’ Brit Hume not a fan of UN weapons inspection policy

Bizarro universe indeed.

Fox News’ Brit Hume tweeted out a link to an article and proclaimed, “are you kidding me?” You see, United Nations weapons inspectors aren’t going to find out who used chemical weapons in Syria. No really:

More from The Wall Street Journal:

On Sunday, the U.N. said its inspection team was preparing to start its fact-finding mission on Monday after Syria said it would allow U.N. personnel now in Damascus immediate access to the affected areas.

“The team must be able to conduct a full, thorough and unimpeded investigation,” said U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Sunday night. However, the team is only mandated to determine if chemical weapons were used, not who used them, Mr. Ban’s spokesman said.

Wow. Full and thorough? That doesn’t mean what he thinks it means.

Yes, why? That Twitter user answered his own question:

Yep. Enough said.

    So basically its like performing an autopsy to determine that some one is dead but not bothering to determine why.

    • love2rumba

      Well, considering the member countries are in the UN, does anyone think they are going to let anything incriminating out?


      Look what happened with the Iraq nuclear inspections in 1991 & then ever since, the U.N. couldn’t find their way out of a paper bag none the less nuclear weapons or any weapons for that matter !!!!! Where do you all think Syria got those Chemical Weapons from, Iraq way back in 2003 when then President Bush told Hussein we were coming for him !!!

      Remember we have spy planes with video of Hussein moving all those weapons out of his country in 18 wheelers to places like Iran, Syria, Yemen, etc !!!! Hussein knew the jig was up & he even gave some of his WMD’s to Iran !! Iran was his enemy at the time but Hussein knew Iran would use them if they could figure out how to operate them !!!

      We can’t trust the U.N. they are INCOMPETENT , President BOBO only needs to get premission to go after Syria from Congress & thats it !!!! The U.N. is a joke much like the FLEEBAGGING LlBT@RDS in Congress who passed BOBOcare, the stimulus, changing welfare laws back to pre 1996 frauds, the Benghazi DEBACLE, NSA, IRS, GSA & so on & so on !!!!!

    Has anyone asked the UN Weapons Inspectors their opinion on Miley Cyrus?


  • NeoKong

    This whole thing stinks to high heaven.
    Whatever Obama’s motive may be it is not about protecting civilians.
    Since when has he cared about civilian deaths…?

  • The Penguin #PublishThatSh*t

    This wreaks of “setup”. Or at least a “cover up.”

  • BAW

    At least their type of investigation shouldn’t take very long. Should be fairly easy to determine if people died and how. I doubt U N inspectors can accomplish even that.

    Apparently they know going in they can’t do “full and thorough.”

  • therealguyfaux

    In fairness, Brit, you’ve got to ascertain whether in fact there really were CW’s used before you can point a finger. (cf. Saddam’s WMD cache.)

    The point is better served by saying that the Weapons Inspectors are in effect being told in advance that they ARE going to find that there WERE weapons used, and then to throw their hands up in despair about ever being able to figure out who used them– and that that’s what the whole put-up job is.

  • Jake Wilde

    I hate to be a conspiracy theorist but: It seems there have been a lot of inconsistencies happening with what has happened in that area since Ayers and Dorn were helping to break the Israeli blockade.

  • Frustrated Teacher

    And if these weapons are somehow shown to have come from Saddam Hussein’s missing stash, that information will be hidden and suppressed because…..it would show Bush was right.

      Look on the bright side, Teacher: If it turns out these are Saddam’s old WMD, maybe Obama would take credit for finding and destroying them.

      (kinda like The Chosen One keeps patting himself on the back for killing Osama)


    If our gop would get up off there collective azz and do something, this would not be happening! They all want this!

    • Jake Wilde

      If Bush didn’t tell us anything, it told us that it isn’t our GOP anymore. Not the one I joined under Reagan. Ronnie had some faults but he was the last true American President that cared for the entire nation.

  • Jake Wilde

    I watched O’Reilly and Rove discuss it last night cringing at every word they spewed. It is not our fight! We have no idea who used the chemical weapons IF they were used. How many would not put it past suicide bombers to gas themselves?

    • Perso Nasplit

      with conveniently “destroyed” evidence. This stinks to high heaven. I cant believe even 9% of the US citizenry is for this.

  • Perso Nasplit

    makes ya wonder which side is actually trying to cover up evidence, assad, the rebels, or US.

    • therealguyfaux

      Answer: (D), all of the above.

  • J_W_C_NM

    I’m encouraged to see all of the anti-war protesters out in force lining up to be human shields in Syria, just like in Iraq……Oh, wait. All of the liberal pundits that called Bush a war-mongering, baby-killing, ignorant chicken hawk Nazi, are enthusiastically encouraging Obama to earn his warrior bona fides. Will Obama be called a “chicken hawk”?

    • walterc

      Absolutely not, he has a Nobel Peace Prize. You can’t have a Peace Prize and be a Chicken Hawk at the same time. Oh wait, Jimmy Carter has a Peace Prize too.

    • matt

      Any metaphors involving chicken will be swiftly labeled racist.

  • Barry A. Brewer

    When thinking of the use of chemical weapons in Syria, ALWAYS keep in mind that these ARE the ones Saddam “didn’t have.” Proof ABOUNDS that they were trucked into Syria just before the invasion of Iraq.

    You kind of need to know IF something was done before you can try to figure out who did it. I don’t know why this is too complicated for you people.

    • Roto

      You mean if something was done, other than the rows of dead bodies? Right. Got it.

      • Bathing Suit Area

        You can tell from here what killed them? Wow, that’s some superpower.

        • Roto

          I’m just going by Jon Carry’s statement, “It is undeniable.”
          He has years of CBRN ordnance experi… err, umm… He has years of Combatant Commander operations experi… err, umm… I’m taking his word for it. Obama appointed the nitwit.

  • Adela Wagner

    They go and find out IF it was done. Then Obama et al will decide who did it.
