US senator claims Britain's MI6 is planning a fake chemical weapons attack on Syria

US senator claims Britain's MI6 is planning a fake chemical weapons attack on Syria | 10 Sept 2018 | Virginia state senator Richard Black (R), fresh off a sit down with Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, turned up on Arab TV last week making an extraordinary [albeit factual] claim about one of the closest allies of the US. Mr Black said Britain's MI6 intelligence service was planning a chemical weapons attack on the Syrian people, which it would then blame on Mr Assad. "Around four weeks ago, we knew that British intelligence was working towards a chemical attack in order to blame the Syrian government, to hold Syria responsible," Mr Black said on Al Mayadeen, an Arab news channel based in Beirut. Mr Black said later that he meant the British were planning not to carry out an attack themselves, but to either direct rebels to do so or stage a phony attack, with actors posing as victims. Mr Black also said some chemical attacks previously reported to have occurred in Syria were British fakes, pulled off with help from volunteer first responders known as "White Helmets".
