Assad: Eighty to 90 percent of those we are fighting belong to Al Qaeda.


We have yet to see the evidence that Bashar al-Assad actually used chemical weapons against his own people. In fact, the evidence we have seen indicates that the weapons were used by the opposition to Assad. Now Assad and Russian President Vladimir Putin have called the Obama administration's bluff and demanded to see evidence that the Assad regime is responsible for the chemical attack.

In, an exclusive interview, Assad told Le Figaro, a French news outlet,

"Show me the proof of regime chemical attack."

"Whoever accuses must provide proof. We have challenged the United States and France to provide the slightest proof. (US President Barack) Obama and (French president François) Hollande have been incapable (of doing so) even to their own people," Assad told French newspaper Le Figaro in an exclusive interview.

The Obama administration claims that 1,429 people were killed in an August 21 attack outside of Damascus. In a State Department speech on Friday night, Kerry claimed there was evidence from "thousands of sources" that Assad had launched the attack, but just could never actually provide the evidence. It seems like we've heard this one before.

(As a side note, we should be questioning what is being reported, just take a look at this video if you don't think so.)
