Washington Post journalist Gopi Warrick said in his recent book, “The Red Line,” that a senior chemical weapons scientist in Syria had been in contact with Washington for 14 years before it was exposed.
He explained that the Syrian scientist had delivered to the CIA over all these long years detailed information about Damascus’s secret program for the production of chemical weapons, including sarin gas, as he claimed, and accurate data on the “Institute 3000” in the capital, Damascus. Which described the very secret for this program.
The adventure of the Syrian chemist, according to Joby Warick, began in 1988 when he offered his intelligence services to the Americans while he was on a mission in Europe, and then a CIA officer called him in Damascus to recruit him.
In 2001, the Syrian security services discovered the workers of the Syrian chemical scientist, whom the American journalist says was called an American “the chemist”, ending with a firing squad after he confessed to the charges against him and was informed by his Syrian interrogators, according to Joby and Eric, that the CIA had betrayed him .
The Washington Post journalist chose for his new book the title “The Red Line”, in reference to former US President Barack Hussein Obama’s statement threatening Damascus that the Syrian army’s use of chemical weapons against armed opposition militias is a “red line.”
