Assad is still producing chemical weapons in Syria
A document says chemical and biological munitions are produced at three main sites near Damascus and Hama, reports the BBC. It alleges that both Iran and Russia, the government's allies, are aware.It appears that Assad's word is no good when it comes to WMD. Where did Democrats ever get the idea he was a "moderate"? This appears to be more evidence of their bad judgment when it comes to national security issues.
The intelligence document obtained by the BBC says Syria's chemical weapons are manufactured at three sites – Masyaf, in Hama province, and at Dummar and Barzeh, both just outside Damascus. All three are branches of the Scientific Studies and Research Centre (SSRC), a government agency, it adds.
Despite monitoring of the sites by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), the document alleges that manufacturing and maintenance continue in closed sections.
It says the Masyaf and Barzeh facilities both specialize in installing chemical weapons on long-range missiles and artillery.
