In the interview, Nayouf claimed that Iraqi weapons of mass destruction were stashed in three separate sites in Syria, including an underground military base beneath the village of AlBaida, one kilometer south of Masyaf. Nayouf was imprisoned by Syrian authorities for 10 years. In 2001, he was granted political asylum in France."
Now, Sarin gas is being used against the Syrian people by their government - just like what Sadaam did to the Kurds. Did we just find Sadaam's WMD's?
Probably. Nothing surprises me anymore about the Middle East
