Outgoing FBI director warns how Syrian situation is dangerous for US homeland security

The outgoing FBI director Robert Mueller is warning that some American Al Qaeda supporters are traveling to Syria with the intention of learning how to use chemical weapons or WMD’s, and smuggling them back home.

Official, however, the Obama administration has not confirmed that the Assad regime used chemical weapons (like sarin) on its own people. If it did, the scale of the attacks may well exceed those of Saddam Hussein in northern Iraq in the late 1980’s.
The ABC news story and video is here

In the previous decade, the Bush administration claimed that Saddam Hussein presented a direct and existential threat to homeland security in the US. A lot of us believed it.  I did.  Maybe he did after all.  Appearances make the situation in Syria look worse. 
I wonder, has Assad tried to use "local" flux EMP-type weapons against dissidents?
