As a crucial vote on U.S. military intervention in Syria nears the House of Representatives, a video purported to be a "Syrian rebel" admitting to using chemical weapons has surfaced.
The video (below) has not been confirmed as authentic, but has been linked to by conservative websites, such as DrudgeReport.com and InfoWars.com, which oppose President Obama's proposed military action against the Syrian government.
The Obama administration has been supporting and arming the Syrian rebels for a number of months.
The video, uploaded by YouTube user "VexZeen," claims to show a Syrian rebel ("terrorist") by the name of "Nadeem Baloosh" supposedly confessing to using chemical weapons.
The subtitles on the video claim that Baloosh says: “Those are trying to take out the chemicals which produce lethal and deadly gases that I possess.”
The subtitles also claim Baloosh says: “We decided to harm them through their women and kids" and "We’ll kill their women and children as Osama Bin Laden said: 'until they cease killing our women and kids'" and "We will strike them in their homes, we will turn their day into night and their night into day.”
