Mint Press Article in Question: "EXCLUSIVE: Syrians In Ghouta Claim Saudi-Supplied Rebels Behind Chemical Attack"

Information has come to light casting doubt upon the Mint Press article:

1. Retraction and Apology to Our Readers for Mint Press Article on Syria Gas Attack

2. Yahya Ababneh exposed

Those don't prove that there was no sarin in the hands of rebels who had an accident, but they are still important enough that until Yahya Ababneh is thoroughly investigated and his allegations independently substantiated, I am distancing myself from the Mint Press article.

I'm surprised this wasn't bigger news and that it didn't come to my attention sooner.

Also as a clarification, it was never my view that a single accident was responsible for the widespread sarin deaths. It would only have been an indication that the rebels had the gas and could therefore have used it in several locations as a pretext to gain US attacks on Assad's regime. Furthermore, the issue of the Saudis appears to have been misrepresented. I never took it that the Saudis were knowingly arming al Qaeda, per se, but simply Wahhabists, of which the Saudi family are supposedly members.

Lastly, let me make it absolutely clear that I am not and never have been pro-Assad. I am simply anti-war and anti-US lies as pretexts for war (and the US has lied itself into many wars and conflicts, which lies are well documented).
