Former Syrian General: No Doubt Assad Will Use Chemical Weapons

A former top general in Syria's chemical weapons program said on Monday he doesn't doubt for a moment that President Bashar al-Assad will deploy his chemical weapons arsenal as he tries to hold onto power and crush the uprising that started almost two years ago.

"The regime started to fall and deteriorate. It's coming to its end," retired Major General Adnan Sillou told ABC News from a hotel near Antakya, on Turkey's southern border with Syria.
