On Syria, Ban Calls Report "Indisputable" - Like UN Bringing Cholera to Haiti?

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, September 17 -- After UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon called Ake Sellstrom's report on chemical weapons in Syria "overwhelming" even before he saw it, on Tuesday Ban called it "indisputable." But how?

  Earlier on Tuesday, Russia's Sergey Lavrov referred again to alternative theories, and also called the report released September 16 only an interim report, with Khan al Asal for example still not investigated.

  Just before Ban's press conference, the new President of the General Assembly John Ashe spoke. Two questioners in a row asked him about Omar al Bashir of Sudan, indicted by the International Criminal Court, possibly coming to the General Debate.

  Neither questioner asked or reported anything in July when UN official Herve Ladsous met with Bashir. Why isn't Ban asked about that? Or about this recent reported rape in Haiti by a "peacekeeper" from Sri Lanka? Or about cholera in Haiti? Watch this site.
