Leaked emails have allegedly proved
that the White House gave the green light to a chemical weapons attack
in Syria that could be blamed on Assad's regime and in turn, spur
international military action in the devastated country.A
report released on Monday contains an email exchange between two senior
officials at British-based contractor Britam Defence where a scheme
'approved by Washington' is outlined explaining that Qatar would fund
rebel forces in Syria to use chemical weapons.Barack
Obama made it clear to Syrian president Bashar al-Assad last month that
the U.S. would not tolerate Syria using chemical weapons against its
own people.

According to Infowars.com, the December 25 email was sent from Britam's Business Development Director David Goulding to company founder Philip Doughty.


It
reads: 'Phil... We’ve got a new offer. It’s about Syria again. Qataris
propose an attractive deal and swear that the idea is approved by
Washington.'We’ll have to deliver a CW to Homs, a Soviet origin g-shell from Libya similar to those that Assad should have.

'They want us to deploy our Ukrainian personnel that should speak Russian and make a video record.


'Frankly, I don’t think it’s a good idea but the sums proposed are enormous. Your opinion?

'Kind regards, David.'

'setting common redlines about the consequences of using chemical
weapons'.

A leaked U.S. government cable
revealed that the Syrian army more than likely had used chemical weapons
during an attack in the city of Homs in December.
The document, revealed in The Cable,
revealed the findings of an investigation by Scott Frederic Kilner, the
U.S. consul general in Istanbul, into accusations that the Syrian army
used chemical weapons in the December 23 attack.

An Obama administration
official who had access to the document was reported as saying: 'We
can't definitely say 100 per cent, but Syrian contacts made a compelling
case that Agent 15 was used in Homs on Dec. 23.'Mr
Kilner's investigation included interviews with civilians, doctors, and
rebels present during the attack, as well as the former general and

Nashwan Abu Abdo, a neurologist in Homs, is certain chemical weapons
were used. He told The Cable: 'It was a chemical weapon, we are sure of
that, because tear gas can't cause the death of people.'[/*]

Eye witness accounts from the
investigation revealed that a tank launched chemical weapons and caused
people exposed to them to suffer nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain,
delirium, seizures, and respiratory distress.
The symptoms suggest that the weaponized compound Agent-15 was responsible. Syria denied using chemical weapons and said it would never use them against citizens.


Speaking to Pentagon reporters at the time, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said his biggest concern was how
the U.S. and allies would secure the chemical and biological weapons
sites scattered across Syria and ensure the components don't end up in
the wrong hands if the regime falls, particularly under violent
conditions.Government
forces and rebels in Syria
have both been accused by human rights groups of carrying out brutal
warfare in the 22-month-old conflict, which has claimed more than
60,000 lives.WARNING GRAPHIC CONTENT : 'SYRIAN REBELS TESTING CHEMICAL WEAPONS
