This week’s top news:

Anonymous US Officials: Syria Has Loaded Chemical Weapons into Bombs: The Obama administration on Wednesday again repeated a vow to take military action against the Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad if it uses chemical weapons to crush the armed rebellion trying to overthrow it.

Weapons Sent to Libyan Rebels With US Approval Went to Islamic Extremists: The Obama administration secretly encouraged Qatar to send arms shipments to Libyan rebels in their fight to overthrow the regime of Muammar Gadhafi, but US officials were soon faced with evidence that these arms were ending up in the hands of extremist Islamic militant groups.

NATO Attacked Afghan Health Clinic in Serious War Crime: US-led NATO forces attacked a health clinic in Afghanistan, stormed the building, damaged equipment, detained those inside and turned it into a temporary jail and military base, in a grave violation of the laws of war.

Netanyahu: Israel Was Going to Keep E-1 With Or Without Settlement: Facing continued international criticism of the planned expansion of Israeli settlements into E-1, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sought to downplay the dispute by insisting Israel was never really going to give up on its occupation of the region anyhow.

Manning’s Pretrial Hearing Focuses on Abusive Treatment: Manning’s lawyers, who aim to get the charges dropped because of his treatment, say the abusive conditions were designed to break, not protect, the young soldier.

Terror Skyrocketing in Face of US War on Terror: Not only has the US "global war on terror" not made a positive difference, the places the policy has directly targeted have ended up by far the worst off, with terror attacks virtually unheard of before the 2003 US invasion of Iraq, and the nation still having the most attacks of any nation on the planet.
