This story was sent to me by a man who has contacts throughout the world. Syrian rebels in the Damascus suburb of Ghouta have admitted to Associated Press international correspondent Dale Gaviak they were responsible for the chemical weapons incident that western powers have blamed 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.

Who is Dale Gaviak? Gaviak is a Middle East correspondent for Associated Press International, which is probably the most respected news service in the world. Gaviak has been stationed in Jordan for the API for over two decades. He is a well-respected correspondent.

"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 gas attack," he wrote. They counted 355 people were gassed. The French counted just less than that. Secretary of State John Kerry claims there were 1,429. Secretary Kerry, under oath, claimed that "only" Assad has used chemical weapons. President Putin of Russia has called Kerry a "liar." In a briefing, an API reporter asked about the story that the rebels used chemical weapons and was told "no comment."

Rebels told Gaviak they were not properly trained on how to handle the chemical weapons or even told what they were. Some of the rebels handled the chemical weapons improperly and set off the explosions one rebel told Gaviak.

This is just part of the story.

On the Fox Report on Sept. 1, Harris Faulkner reported that according to U.S. intelligence there have been nine incidents of chemical weapons use. In his testimony to Congress, Kerry stated "Assad has used chemical weapons in the teens." Wonder if they briefed the president each time.

The possibility exists that the rebels attempted to revenge the Syrian government's many uses of the chemical attacks against them.

This writer watched the nearly eight hours of congressional hearings last week on the resolution to go to war with Syria. President Obama had asked Congress to approve his use of a limited and narrow missile strike against Syria. Representing Obama at the hearings were Kerry, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey. Many Democratic and Republican senators, even after receiving classified briefings, said they were uncertain of what the Obama administration was planning. Many times Kerry and Hagel didn't answer senators' questions, but kept repeating that the reputation of our country was on the line. Also, even though more than 100,000 Syrians have been killed, we need to respond to this attack because chemical weapons were used.

The Syrian government has at least three weeks to prepare for any American strike. They are moving their assets around their country. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey, has said that time is not a factor in any strike. He said it makes no difference if you wait a week or a month.

Another factor to consider is that Russian soldiers are working the anti-missile defense system in Syria. And it has been reported that Syria more than likely will station civilians, women and children, around the targets that General Dempsey plans on striking. How is that going to play on American and international television? What if a Russian soldier is killed will Putin react against the USA? There is a large Russian military base in Syria.

Several Republican congressman raised the question about Obama's accountability especially after all the scandals including Benghazi. Secretary Kerry responded saying Benghazi isn't important anymore. The Republicans' comments were it is hard to trust someone who has not kept his word.
