BRAD MERRIMAN – JOURNALIST – TACD NEWS – Saudi Arabia has went public today telling the world that it will back any military strikes against the Assad regime stating that Assad has “crossed all lines of tyranny.”
This statement comes amid reports that Saudi intelligence chief, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, was behind selling the saran gas to Jabhat al-Nusra militants, a faction of Al Quada. last week, which resulted in the deaths of over a thousand civilians. The statement made by Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal was not specific about US involvement in the conflict, but it was the first time the Saudi government has went pubic about its support of the rebels.
A report filed by tacdnews.com earlier in the week stated that Dale Gavlak, a writer for the Associated press and NPR, has interviewed Syrian position rebels who insist that it was the rebels who mishandled the chemical weapons, causing an inadvertent detonation killing 12 rebels. Some rebels are stating they are on the payroll of the Saudi government. Speculation from some rebels reveals a possible deal in the works between the Saudi government and the Syrian rebels that would foster a partnership, that would give moire rights to Syrian oil fields to the Saudi government, if the Assad regime is toppled.
