Syria's chemical weapons stockpile

Evidence of chemical weapons use gets harder to find with each passing day in Syria.

The Assad regime is blocking U.N. special investigators from entering the country as the Obama administration continues to seek concrete proof.

“It is publicly known that Syria has the largest active chemical weapons program in the world," President Obama's former chief adviser on all matters relating to weapons of mass destruction, Gary Samore, told CNN's Christiane Amanpour on Wednesday.

The only other country that might have a comparable stockpile might be North Korea, about which we know very little, according to Samore.
