The re-blogged article tries to challenge the well-known wisdom of
Hanoi JohnSecretary Kerry that, since sarin gas was used during gas attacks in Syria last month, women, children and innocent Syrian freedom fighters could not have been responsible for them. It is based on a May 31, 2013 Russian language article at RT.com claiming that Turkish security forces captured Syrian militants affiliated with Al-Nusra, and hence with Al-Qaeda, in possession of sarin gas, which they intended to use in Turkey.

The sarin gas was found in the homes of suspected Syrian Islamists detained in the southern provinces of Adana and Mersia following a search by Turkish police on Wednesday, reports say. The gas was allegedly going…
