Syrian Chemical Weapons Facilities Under Rebel Control

Inspectors from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) are asking to also visit CW sites under that were captured by the rebels and are under their control.

One of the U.S. government’s main arguments for why we are supposed to have concluded that Syrian government forces were responsible for the August chemical weapons attack in Damascus is that the rebels being armed by the U.S. whose ranks include al-Qaeda affiliated Islamic extremists didn’t have access to such weapons. But now inspectors from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) — which are in Syria disarming its stockpiles after the government under President Bashar al-Assad declared its possession of CW and agreed to allow the teams in for that purpose — are asking to also visit CW sites under that were captured by the rebels and are under their control.
