Kerry: 'We Knew That Assad Had Kept Some' Chemical Weapons
Former Secretary of State John Kerry said Wednesday that the Obama
administration knew that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad kept some of his
chemical weapons despite an international agreement brokered to remove the
entire stockpile by mid-2014.
"We said we got a hundred percent of the declared weapons out, which is what
the Organization for the [Prohibition] of Chemical Weapons was able to
track," Kerry said on Fox News. "We knew that Assad had kept some, and we
tried to go to the [United Nations] Security Council, and, unfortunately,
Russia played games and we didn't get there."
