A U.S. intelligence report released Friday by the Obama Administration indicates that they knew about a chemical attack by the Syrian military three days before it happened

Officials refused to answer whether or not they warned rebels before the August 21 attack on a suburb of Damascus

Members of the opposition say they were given no advance warning

According to U.S. estimates, 1,429 people died in the nerve-gas attack including 426 children

In his press conference Saturday,  President Barack Obama said that there was ‘overwhelming evidence’ Syrian President Bashar al-Assad carried out a chemical weapons attack against rebels in the suburbs of Damascus on August 21.

What he didn’t mention was that his administration knew about the alleged nerve-gas attack three days before it happened.

At a U.S. intelligence briefing Friday afternoon, senior administration officials disclosed that there were indications three days prior that an attack was coming.
