42. Unfortunately, there may be some truth to this:

"If the Syrian government had nothing to hide and wanted to prove to the world that it had not used chemical weapons in this incident, it would have ceased its attacks on the area and granted immediate access to the U.N. five days ago," a senior administration official said.

"At this juncture, the belated decision by the regime to grant access to the U.N. team is too late to be credible, including because the evidence available has been significantly corrupted as a result of the regime's persistent shelling and other intentional actions over the last five days," the official added.
'

I can't help but wonder just how far Assad might go to hide his government's possible complicity in these latest attacks; truth is, if he was that confident of being found not guilty.....well, you fill in the blank.

The most glaring piece of evidence pointing to something being quite amiss is the mention of shelling over the past few days; if nothing else, this was a terribly dumbassed move on the part of Damascus.....but there could be coverups going on, too......
