Assad takes care not to hit Obama’s red line as he drops chorine on Aleppo

Compare and contrast the following:

VOA:

Yesterday Assad government helicopters dropped barrels of chlorine on a rebel neighborhood in Aleppo.

CNN, August 1, 2012:

“We cannot have a situation where chemical or biological weapons are falling into the hands of the wrong people,” Obama told reporters at the White House. “We have been very clear to the Assad regime — but also to other players on the ground — that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. That would change my calculus; that would change my equation.”

Maybe the chorine is to clean the city’s swimming pools?
