U.S. and Russia negotiate over Syrian chemical weapons

Russia and the United States will meet later this month to discuss a possible diplomatic solution to the crisis in Syria, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said from Switzerland on Friday, where the two nations are holding a second day of talks about Syria's chemical weapons.

Kerry said they would meet "around the United Nations General Assembly" on September 28. Kerry and his Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov, spoke to reporters after meeting with the joint U.N. and Arab League envoy to Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, in Geneva.

They pledged to work toward setting a date for a long-delayed second round of peace talks involving all parties in Syria, known as Geneva II, at the meeting in New York.

    Help me to understand, how is it that an ex-employee's ID could possibly have been used? Would the Navy not routinely recover and cancel any terminated employees' ID? This is routine in most corporations. Also, why the ID's issued not be pictureID's????
