Loudoun County Senator Dick Black (R), is blasting U.S. airstrikes against Syrian and defending Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Sen. Black doesn't think Assad is behind the chemical attack on civilians. Black met with Assad last year and saw definitive evidence that the 2013 chemical attack was done by Syrian rebels. Black said,
"If you look at it, there is absolutely no motive for President Assad to launch a gas attack...he was winning the war on all fronts why would he launch a gas attack against women and children that he knows is going to outrage the entire world?" said Black.
