Colin Powell's Former Chief of Staff: Israel or Rebels Behind Chemical Weapons

Retired U.S. General Lawrence Wilkerson, who was once Chief of Staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell, says either Israel or the rebels “could have very well” been the ones behind chemical weapons in Syria. 

He believes the use of the weapons serves Israel well, because it gives them an opportunity to act against Bashar al-Assad. He says Israel’s leadership is so “inept” that they need something big to provide them with this chance.

Wilkerson said these things during an interview on Current TV, according to the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz.

He also referenced Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as an “idiot,” and as someone President Obama is trying to help deliver from “strategic isolation.”
