Retired Army Major Gen. Paul Vallely says the United States — which announced Thursday it has evidence that Syria has used chemical weapons — has been well aware of that fact for up to eight months.

“Chemical weapons were used against civilians and against the opposition forces . . . This has been known and validated on the ground,’’ Vallely told Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show.’’

“What they’re using, basically, is a spray canister type thing of a chlorine gas that’s been enhanced by some innovations by the Iranian government — [the] Iranian Revolutionary Guard that’s been assisting.’’

Vallely — who chairs Stand Up America, which champions the conservancy of the U.S. Constitution — said while the Syrians have used the chemical sarin, as was disclosed Thursday, they have primarily used chlorine.’’

“Chlorine — what that does, it chokes the individual, it really debilitates them immediately, and also causes serious skin rashes to occur and we, actually, even provided videos of the victims to the government,’’ Vallely said.

He said one reason the U.S. may finally be coming forward with its evidence is that it is becoming common knowledge.

“There’s enough pressure now, you know? They’ve asked the United Nations to go in. Turkey surely knows it. Hezbollah knows it in Lebanon what’s been used up there,’’ Vallely said.

“They’ve been trying to gather more and more chemical and biological weapons as well.’’
He criticized Washington for continuing “to hold things back from the American people of factual nature when they know it.

“It’s just another trip down the road of deception of what really this government knows.’’
