True or simply a tactic to weaken the FSA in Syria? I'm sure the news (true or not) will definitely divide/crack the FSA and relationship between the allies strategically.

With a little bit of help from Russia, the Americans and the Syrians have established contact with each other, sending shockwaves in Turkey, which has blamed Moscow and Beijing for the continuation of strife in Syria.

Addressing the American media on Thursday, Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov dropped a bombshell. He said that Moscow had helped the American experts to establish contact with the Syrians on the subject of chemical weapons. “I hope I won’t disclose any big secret, but we have helped American experts establish contact with the Syrians on this issue, and we have received explanations and assurances that the Syrian government is guarding these facilities in the best possible way,” said Mr. Lavrov, as reported by Russia Today.

Iraq's WMD's, The fact that the WMD's are in Syria is old news but the Russians being worried about them is news. I would imagine terrorists are chomping at the bit to get ahold of those.
