Syria Rebels make Advances as Hillary Clinton calls for ‘a Concerted Push’ for Democratic Transition (Videos)

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called for a ‘concerted push’ on Friday to begin a political transition in Syria. She said that the transition must eventuate in a unified, democratic Syria. AFP reports:

Meanwhile, former Secretary of State Colin Powell’s chief of staff, Lawrence Wilkerson , expressed severe reservations about what he called ‘politicized’ intelligence about alleged Syrian government preparations to use chemical weapons against its rebels.

ITN reports on advances by Aleppo’s revolutionaries and their attack on an Air Force intelligence compound: “A new video appears to show Free Syrian Army fighters preparing for a battle against government forces in Aleppo. Report by Mark Morris.”

The Syrian revolutionaries continue with their campaign in Damascus suburbs and at the airport.

  1. Robert Fisk of the Independent says that media claims that Hafez al-Assad used chemical weapons against his own people (and that, therefore, Bashar al-Assad would do the same) are lies. Fisk was in Hama in 1982 and saw no evidence of use of chemical weapons. link to independent.co.uk

  2. Russia Today was running cover stories for potential Assad chemical weapons attacks last year?

    I don’t understand why anyone would take a Kremlin source seriously when it comes to a rebellion against a Russian client state. Gee, how about the Syrian News Agency? What do they say?
