BEIRUT — The Syrianregime threatened today touse its chemical and bio-logical weapons in case of a foreign attack, in its firstever acknowledgement thatit possesses weapons of massdestruction.Foreign Ministry spokes-man Jihad Makdissi stressed,however, that Damascuswould not use its unconven-tional arms against its owncitizens. The announcementcomes as Syria faces inter-national isolation, a tena-cious rebellion that has left atleast 19,000 people dead andthreats by Israel to attack toprevent such weapons fromfalling into rebel hands.Syria’s decision to revealthe long suspected existence of its chemical weapons suggestsa desperate regime deeplyshaken by an increasingly boldrevolt that has scored a stringof successes in the past week,including a stunning bombattack that killed four high-level security officials, the cap-ture of several border cross-ings and sustained offensiveson the regime strongholds of Damascus and Aleppo.“No chemical or biologicalweapons will ever be used, andI repeat, will never be used,during the crisis in Syria nomatter what the developmentsinside Syria,” Makdissi said innews conference broadcast onSyrian state TV. “All of thesetypes of weapons are in stor-age and under security and thedirect supervision of the Syrianarmed forces and will never beused unless Syria is exposed toexternal aggression.”While the statementMakdissi read out prom-ised not to use the weaponsagainst the Syrian people, helater noted that Damascus isnot facing an internal enemyin the rebellion, which theregime has described as beingfunded from abroad and driv-en by foreign extremists.He added that there wasa foreign political and mediacampaign “that seeks to jus-tify and prepare internationalpublic opinion for militaryintervention under the falsepretense of weapons of massdestruction.”Syria is believed to havenerve agents as well as mus-tard gas, Scud missiles capa-ble of delivering these lethalchemicals and a variety of advanced conventional arms,including anti-tank rocketsand late-model portable anti-aircraft missiles.Israel has said it fears thatchaos following Assad’s fallcould allow the Jewish state’senemies to access Syria’schemical weapons, and has notruled out military interventionto prevent this from happening.A senior U.S. intelli-gence official said Friday theSyrians have moved chemicalweapons material from thecountry’s north, where thefighting was fiercest, appar-ently to both secure it, andto consolidate it, which U.S.officials considered a respon-sible step.But there has also beena disturbing rise in activityat the installations, so theU.S. intelligence communityis intensifying its monitoringefforts to track the weaponsand try to figure out wheth-er the Syrians are trying touse them, the official saidon condition of anonymityto discuss the still-evolvinginvestigation.Makdissi did not discusslast week’s bombing claimedby the rebels that killed fourtop Syrian security officials,but assured journalists thatthe situation was under con-trol, despite reports of clashesthroughout the country andespecially in the major cit-ies of Aleppo and the capitalDamascus.“Yes, there were clasheson certain streets in certainneighborhoods, but the secu-rity situation is now muchbetter. Everyone is feelingreassured,” he said. “We arenot happy about this, but thisis an emergency situation andit will not last more than aday or two and the situationwill return to normal.”Security forces appeared toshow more government con-trol in videos posted onlineby activists today. Some of the clips show Syrian militiasweeping through Damascusneighborhoods once held byrebels, kicking down doorsand searching houses in mopup operations against thefighters that had managed tohold parts of the capital formuch of last week.

CHICAGO — Jury selec-tion is to begin today in DrewPeterson’s long-delayed mur-der trial, where prosecutorswant the former suburbanChicago police officer’s wives— one he’s charged with slay-ing and another who has dis-appeared — to effectively tes-tify from their graves throughfriends and relatives about histhreatening to kill them.Those picked for the jury are likely to hear wit-nesses describe statementsthat Peterson’s third wife,Kathleen Savio, and his fourthwife, Stacy Peterson, alleg-edly made. Such hearsay isusually barred. However, anappellate court ruled jurorscan hear them.Peterson, 58, is chargedwith killing Savio in 2004.Her body was found in a drybathtub in her home, her hairsoaked with blood. The ex-Bolingbrook police sergeantis also a suspect in the 2007disappearance of his fourthwife, Stacy Peterson.A judge will vet would-be jurors starting today. A200-person jury has beenwaiting three years for a trialto get under way. It was putoff because of appellate courtbattles over the Savio andStacy Peterson statements.“I’ve never heard of any-thing comparable to this — a jury pool waiting around forso long knowing what casethey’re going to be in and thereliance on hearsay,” said GalPissetzky, a Chicago defenselawyer with no link to thecase. “It’s all very unusual.”The legal saga surroundingPeterson and whether he usedhis status as a police officer totry to get away with murderhas attracted national attention.Rob Lowe portrayed Petersonin a 2011 TV movie, “DrewPeterson: Untouchable.”Vetting would-be jurorstypically takes a few days,but extra time is sometimesrequired in high-profile casesto weed out those who comein with well-formed opin-ions. Opening statements atPeterson’s trial in Joliet areslated for next Tuesday.The defense raised concernsome prospective jurors mayhave violated orders to avoidall news about Peterson. Onequestion Will County JudgeEdward Burmila is likely toask is whether they saw themovie.Pissetzky wonders if thosein the jury pool succumbedto temptations to peek at thenews or search online aboutthe case.“It’s like you tell a kid,‘Now, don’t you eat that pieover there,”’ he said. “What arethey going to do? Eat the pie!”An appellate court ruledthis year that jurors can hearwitnesses say Savio and StacyPeterson told them Petersonthreatened them. There’sapparently no physical evi-dence, so the hearsay is theheart of prosecutors’ case.At a hearing in 2010 todetermine what hearsay a jury could hear, dozens of witnesses testified that Saviotold them she feared DrewPeterson would kill her andmake it look like an accident.The 40-year-old Savio’sdeath was initially declaredan accident, but Peterson wascharged after fourth wife StacyPeterson disappeared. The23-year-old Stacy Peterson’sbody has never been found,but authorities say they believeshe’s dead.Peterson, jailed since his2009 arrest, pleaded not guilty.His attorneys say Savio’sdeath was an accident and thatStacy Peterson — 30 yearsyounger than Drew Peterson— ran off with another manand is alive.
