US: Assad Responsible Even If Didn't Order Gas Attack

Link to article

"'We ultimately of course hold President Assad responsible for the use of chemical weapons by his regime against his own people, regardless of where the command and control lies,' State Department deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf told a press briefing.

'The commander in chief of any military is ultimately responsible for the decisions made under their leadership, even if... he's not the one that pushes the button, or says "Go" on this,' she told a press briefing."

So by this logic, Bush and Obama are responsible for all the war crimes committed by American troops in the War on Terror. This includes, but is certainly not limited to:

- using White Phosphorous, depleted uranium, and possibly sarin gas

- abuses a
t Abu Ghraib and other prisons (including the black sites)

- shooting at and killing civilians, journalists, first responders, etc.
