Classified U.S. Military Document: Syrian Rebels DO Have Chemical Weapons
September 12, 2013
Al Qaeda In Syria Had Sarin Before August Attack
We’ve extensively documented that the Syrian rebels do have access to chemical weapons.
It turns out that a classified U.S. military document says the same thing.
A former senior security policy analyst in the office of the secretary of defense, F. Michael Maloof, reports at WND:
In a classified document just obtained by WND, the U.S. military confirms that sarin was confiscated earlier this year from members of the Jabhat al-Nusra Front, the most influential of the rebel Islamists fighting in Syria.
The document says sarin from al-Qaida in Iraq made its way into Turkey and that while some was seized, more could have been used in an attack last March on civilians and Syrian military soldiers in Aleppo.
The document, classified Secret/Noforn – “Not for foreign distribution” – came from the U.S. intelligence community’s National Ground Intelligence Center, or NGIC, and was made available to WND Tuesday.
It revealed that AQI had produced a “bench-scale” form of sarin in Iraq and then transferred it to Turkey.
