As part of the Obama administration’s repeated insistence – though without offering proof – that the recent sarin gas attack near Damascus was the work of the Assad regime, the administration has downplayed or denied the possibility that al-Qaida-linked Syrian rebels could produce deadly chemical weapons.
However, 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.
You may recall that the Obama red line, which he now claims is the world’s red line, threatened action for everyone, not just Assad.
“We have been very clear to the Assad regime, but also to other players on the ground, that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. That would change my calculus. That would change my equation.”
Perhaps Obama will offer the rebels the same deal the Russians offered Assad? Turn over your chemical weapons and the U.S. won’t inflict a tiny little pinprick of a strike. Somehow, I don’t think Barry’s Muslim Brotherhood friends were ever under any threat of a strike, no matter how tiny.
