GWEN IFILL: But, General, as you know, the U.N. report doesn’t actually say the government is behind these attacks, which leads open the possibility, as some say, that your folks are behind them.
SALIM IDRIS: Oh, my God. Please.
Do you think that the FSA has ability to launch chemical materials? We said many, many times we don’t have chemical materials. And, as you know, Secretary Kerry say it very clearly that our friends in the United States, they know where that rocket launched from and where they landed and who gave the order. We know who gave the order.
We have evidence. And the international community, all of our friends in the international community, they know that the regime used that chemical material.
GWEN IFILL: I have one final question for you, sir. Do you think, given the report from the U.N. and the deal that was cut in Geneva, that you are any closer today to your goal of overthrowing Assad?
SALIM IDRIS: I think we are very close to throw out Bashar and to collapse the regime. And I have the hope to collapse the regime tomorrow.
We hope that our friends in the United States help us and our friends in Europe, because the Russians and the Iranians are helping the criminal regime.
GWEN IFILL: General Salim Idris, thank you.
