Probes from Khan al-Assal show chemicals used in the March 19 attack did not belong to standard Syrian army ammunition, and that the shell carrying the substance was similar to those made by a rebel fighter group, the Russian Foreign Ministry stated.
A statement released by the ministry on Wednesday particularly drew attention to the massive stove-piping of various information aimed at placing the responsibility for the alleged chemical weapons use in Syria on Damascus, even though the results of the UN investigation have not yet been revealed.
By such means the way is being paved for military actionagainst Damascus, the ministry pointed out.

But that would not facilitate Obama putting the Muslim Brotherhood into power as he helped them do in Egypt and Libya.

Didn't say the Russians are credible, just that the Obama Administration has not made even the most basic case for military intervention.
They are winging things and making it up as they go along. They cannot be trusted as we have seen in Libya and Egypt.
Better to wait until we have some one who knows what they are doing in office before we go on any more adventures, especially when they tend to result in Al Qaeda taking control of an entire country.
Yeah, the /s was for sarcasm. I agree with you.
