Jeff Rosen's a fine example of what a 'journalist' is nowadays:

slant and lie to push a political viewpoint, and screw truth.

Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime has used chemical warfare in order to ease its entrance into Homs, said Awad Al-Razak, an officer who defected from the Syrian armed forces.

Al-Razak, who served in the chemical warfare department of the Syrian military, told the Al-Arabiya network that the government used nerve gas under the supervision of Russian and Iranian scientists, and intends to do so again in other parts of the country.
Gee, I wonder where he might have obtained some of that stuff...
'Course, if the Iranians and Russians are involved, they may have given them the stuff; but I do have to wonder if some of it is, ah, 'previously obtained'.

As the threat of invasion loomed and the terror of Nazi bombs continued, Yale University sent a letter to both Oxford and Cambridge universities, offering children of their fellows and dons evacuation refuge in the U.S.

Calling itself the Yale Faculty Committee for Receiving Oxford and Cambridge University Children, 125 Oxford children and 35 mothers took up the offer, boarding the SS Antonia from Liverpool to New Haven, Connecticut on 8 July 1940.
Dr John Fulton of Yale Medical School was a driving force behind the rescue and said the committee 'hoped to save some of the children of intellectuals before the storm breaks.'
So we have either 'Let's try to save some children of proper type', or 'Screw the general populace, us university types have to stick together.'

Back to leftist media 'journalists', Daily Caller has a whole string of reports on what has come out about Media Matters coordinating with the Obama administration, trying to destroy Fox News and so forth. And it includes
Brock, the head of the liberal nonprofit Media Matters for America, had told friends and co-workers that he feared he was in imminent danger from right-wing assassins and needed a security team to keep him safe.

The threat he faced while smoking on his roof? “Snipers,” a former co-worker recalled.

“He had more security than a Third World dictator,” one employee said, explaining that Brock’s bodyguards would rarely leave his side, even accompanying him to his home in an affluent Washington neighborhood each night where they “stood post” to protect him. “What movement leader has a detail?” asked someone who saw it.
Well, that would include, under that old saw 'people tend to think other people think the same way', movement leaders trying to destroy other people probably think their targets might act the way the 'movement leader' does.

But Eric Holder knew NOTHING about it. Right....

The Syrians and the Iraqis have been traditional enemies since before the time Abraham lived in Ur.

They have usually been on very friendly terms with the Persians, but I doubt whether either the Iranian or the Russian regime would want to be showing off, if they have stocks of things banned by the UN.

From vague memory, some of the 1950s organic chemistry books in the library, when I was at school, had the names of the actual chemicals, from which a degree level chemist would be able to work out the structure and synthesize the stuff.

My guess is, if they have the stuff, they likely made it themselves. A Japanese cult was able to, so, with the finances of even as crappy a state as Syria, it probably wouldn't be too dificult.
