Syria Scatters Its Chemical Weapons to Thwart Attack

Hosted by

Yesterday, Syrian President Bashar Assad agreed to sign a ban on chemical weapons. In Geneva today, Secretary of State John Kerry wrapped up a meeting with Russia's Foreign Minister on the proposal to take control of the weapons Syria now admits it has. While Kerry has acknowledged that the US and Russia share a deep commitment to a negotiated solution, the US is insisting that the threat of force must remain. Now, the Wall Street Journal reports that Syrian forces are scattering the nation's chemical weapons stockpile. Adam Entous covers national security for the paper.
