    Rebels Admit Responsibility for Chemical Weapons Attack

    Militants tell AP reporter they mishandled Saudi-supplied chemical weapons, causing accident

    By: Paul Joseph Watson

    Syrian rebels in the Damascus suburb of Ghouta have admitted to Associated Press journalist Dale Gavlak that they were responsible for last week’s chemical weapons incident which western powers have blamed on Bashar Al-Assad’s forces, revealing that the casualties were the result of an accident caused by rebels mishandling chemical weapons provided to them by Saudi Arabia.

    “From numerous interviews with doctors, Ghouta residents, rebel fighters and their families….many believe that certain rebels received chemical weapons via the Saudi intelligence chief, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, and were responsible for carrying out the (deadly) gas attack,” writes Gavlak.

    Rebels told Gavlak that they were not properly trained on how to handle the chemical weapons or even told what they were. It appears as though the weapons were initially supposed to be given to the Al-Qaeda offshoot Jabhat al-Nusra.

    “We were very curious about these arms. And unfortunately, some of the fighters handled the weapons improperly and set off the explosions,” one militant named ‘J’ told Gavlak.

    His claims are echoed by another female fighter named ‘K’, who told Gavlak, “They didn’t tell us what these arms were or how to use them. We didn’t know they were chemical weapons. We never imagined they were chemical weapons.”

    Abu Abdel-Moneim, the father of an opposition rebel, also told Gavlak, “My son came to me two weeks ago asking what I thought the weapons were that he had been asked to carry,” describing them as having a “tube-like structure” while others were like a “huge gas bottle.” The father names the Saudi militant who provided the weapons as Abu Ayesha.

    According to Abdel-Moneim, the weapons exploded inside a tunnel, killing 12 rebels.

    “More than a dozen rebels interviewed reported that their salaries came from the Saudi government,” writes Gavlak.

    If accurate, this story could completely derail the United States’ rush to attack Syria which has been founded on the “undeniable” justification that Assad was behind the chemical weapons attack. Dale Gavlak’s credibility is very impressive. He has been a Middle East correspondent for the Associated Press for two decades and has also worked for National Public Radio (NPR) and written articles for BBC News.

    The website on which the story originally appeared - Mint Press (which is currently down as a result of huge traffic it is attracting to the article) is a legitimate media organization based in Minnesota. The Minnesota Post did a profile on them last year.

    Saudi Arabia’s alleged role in providing rebels, whom they have vehemently backed at every turn, with chemical weapons, is no surprise given the revelations earlier this week that the Saudis threatened Russia with terror attacks at next year’s Winter Olympics in Sochi unless they abandoned support for the Syrian President.

    “I can give you a guarantee to protect the Winter Olympics next year. The Chechen groups that threaten the security of the games are controlled by us,” Prince Bandar allegedly told Vladimir Putin, the Telegraph reports.

    The Obama administration is set to present its intelligence findings today in an effort prove that Assad’s forces were behind last week’s attack, despite American officials admitting to the New York Times that there is no “smoking gun” that directly links President Assad to the attack.

    US intelligence officials also told the Associated Press that the intelligence proving Assad’s culpability is “no slam dunk.”

  3. "We didn't know what they were and it was an accident".

    I have to call BS on this unlinked story. Even if someone provides a link, "it was an accident" doesn't fly. Purely speculation here, but they did it.

    This is it and I don't know that it's a particularly trustworthy site, but there's been speculation all along that it was the rebels.

    Currently around 73% taking the poll also thought it was the rebels.

    If this is backed up by the UN, 0bama is going to have egg on his face. And Kerry too.

    If this is true it will be fun to watch the main stream media fall all over themselves trying to protect their king.

    Even Putin said that Assad's forces didn't use the Sarin gas but, of course, no one will listen to him. Obama is between a rock and a hard spot right now and, regardless of the truth of the matter, he has to attack to try to save face. What will he do when this blows up in his face? He has been humiliated by the UN and Britain and his ego can't take that!

    If you think about it, how many times over the last few days have you been told that the UN inspectors are only there to determine if WMD gas was used, not to investigate who launched the attack? I understand this reasoning from them, but if they are there why not complete the investigation to its conclusion as to the who what where and when. I really think Obama doesn’t want to know, but there are so many items coming out to the contrary that it wasn’t Assad ‘s troops but some stupid ass on the other side who looks like they made a mistake and screwed up big time from what I’ve read.
