US: Russia 'isolated and alone' on Syria blame
Thursday - 9/12/2013, 4:50pm EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The White House says Russia is "isolated and alone" in blaming the Syrian opposition for the use of chemical weapons.
White House spokesman Jay Carney says even countries like Iran agree that Syria's government is responsible.
Carney says the U.S. wasn't surprised by an opinion piece in The New York Times in which Russian President Vladimir Putin Russian argues the opposition was culpable. Putin also says it's dangerous for America to think of itself as exceptional.
Carney says the U.S. response to bloodshed in Syria demonstrates why America is exceptional.
He also says there's "great irony" in Putin placing his piece in the Times. He says it reflects the exceptional tradition of freedom of expression in the U.S. He says that freedom is lacking in Russia and has been decreasing.
