BERLIN, September 8 (RIA Novosti) – German intelligence sources suggest that last month's alleged chemical weapons attack in Damascus was not ordered by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Bild am Sonntag has reported.
Forces loyal to President Assad had been asking him for four months to use chemical weapons against the rebels, but they still received no approval from the Syrian leader. Therefore, the August 21 attack “might not have been sanctioned by Assad,” the report said.
The newspaper also said citing German intelligence that President Assad is likely to remain in power for a long time, even if the United States conducts military strikes on Syria.

Well this admin has used its NSA power to read the personal communications of Mexico and Brazil's presidents so maybe Syria's too? I wouldn't be surprised and bout the Obamites would care if they read and listened in on Romneys last fall.
