Syrian ‘Chemical Victims’ Suffered from Dust Inhalation, Reports Say

April 16, 2018

A report by the Independent’s veteran Middle East correspondent Robert Fisk quotes doctors in Douma saying victims suffered from dust inhalation and that a member of the White Helmets caused panic by falsely shouting, “Gas!” in a triage center. The White Helmets were then bused out with other jihadists, as Caitlin Johnstone explains.

By Caitlin Johnstone

We are now being told (and I assure you I am not making this up) that if the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons doesn’t find evidence that the Syrian government conducted a chemical weapons attack in Douma last week, it’s because Russia hid the evidence.

“It is our understanding the Russians may have visited the attack site,” reports U.S. Ambassador Kenneth Ward. “It is our concern that they may have tampered with it with the intent of thwarting the efforts of the OPCW Fact-Finding Mission to conduct an effective investigation.”

I guess the idea is that this international top-level investigative team on which tremendous credibility has been placed by the western world can be thwarted by Russians showing up with a Hoover and spraying some Febreze in the air like a teenage stoner when mom comes home? I’m not sure, but given the immense dearth of evidence we’ve been seeing in support of the establishment Douma narrative and the mounting pile of evidence contradicting it, it sure does sound fishy.

Now that the jihadist-occupied suburb of Douma has been retaken by the Syrian government, western journalists have been allowed in to poke around and start asking questions, and so far it isn’t looking great for the propaganda machine

Dust Not Gas

The Independent‘s Robert Fisk has published a report which affirms the story so many westerners have been dismissing as Kremlin propaganda for days now after interviewing a doctor from the hospital of the area where the Douma attack was supposed to have occurred. Dr Assim Rahaibani told Fisk that what was in actuality an outbreak of respiratory distress among occupants of a dusty oxygen-deprived tunnel was made to look like the aftereffects of a chemical weapons attack when a member of the White Helmets started shouting about a gas attack in front of a bunch of video cameras. Everyone panicked and started hosing themselves down, but in the video, according to Rahaibani, “what you see are people suffering from hypoxia—not gas poisoning.”

This report was independently backed up by a reporter from One America News Network named Pearson Sharp, who gave a detailed account of his interviews with officials, doctors, as well as many civilians on the street Sharp says he deliberately selected at random in order to avoid accusations of bias. Many people hadn’t even heard that a chemical weapons attack had taken place, and the ones who had said it was staged by Jaysh al-Islam. The staff at the hospital, including a medic-in-training who was an eyewitness to the incident, gave the same story as the account in Fisk’s report. (Fisk also reported that the White Helmets in Duma had joined jihadists on Syrian government buses on the way to Idlib province.)

Weakening Narrative

The increasing confidence with which these unapproved narratives are being voiced and the increasing discomfort being exhibited by empire loyalists like Ambassador Ward indicate a weakening narrative in the greater propaganda campaign against the Assad government and its allies, but don’t hold your breath for the part where Fox News and the BBC turn around and start asking critical questions of the governments that they are meant to be holding to account.

The journalists who have been advancing the establishment narrative on Syria aren’t about to start reporting that they’ve gotten the entire yria story backward and have been promoting a version of events manufactured for the benefit of CIA-MI6-Mossad agendas. You’re not about to see CNN, who last year staged a fake scripted interview with a seven year-old Syrian girl to manufacture support for escalations against Assad, suddenly turn around and start asking if we’re being told the full story about what’s happening Syria.

Watch them closely. Watch how they steadfastly ignore the growing mountain of evidence and keep promoting the Syrian regime change agenda that the western empire has been working toward for decades. Watch them dismiss all evidence they can’t ignore as Kremlin propaganda and shift the narrative whenever things start to look bad for them. Those riding the crest of the wave of establishment media are too far gone into the blob to ever admit error and change. The least among us aren’t about to stop constructing a public reality tunnel which depicts them as heroes of truth, tear it all down, and start advancing a narrative which makes them look like fools at best and villains at worst. It will not happen.

Luckily for us, it doesn’t need to. Internet censorship is still far from closing the door on our ability to network and share information, and we’ve been very effective at sowing skepticism among the masses. The war propagandists are not nearly as good at their jobs as they want to believe, and we can beat them.

Consent Required

They work so hard to manufacture support for war because they require that consent. If the oligarchs try to launch a war against a disobedient nation amidst very clear opposition from the public, they will shatter the illusion of freedom and democracy that their entire empire is built upon, and then they’re exposed. Corporatist oligarchy has succeeded in weaving its web of dominance because its oppression has thus far remained hidden and its depravity disguised as humanitarianism. They cannot expose themselves by transgressing a loud NO from the public or else the masses will realize that everything they used to believe about their country, their government and their world is a lie.

They won’t risk that. We can force them into retreating from open war by circulating facts and information and keeping a healthy level of skepticism circulating among the public. Watch them squirm, move goalposts and shift narratives, and point and yell about it whenever it happens. We can win the media war against the propagandists. We have truth on our side.

Einige Fragen zum Anschlag in Berlin

Paul Schreyer

22. Dezember 2016   —   Mehr als 24 Stunden nach dem an Menschenverachtung und Brutalität kaum zu überbietenden Anschlag auf den Berliner Weihnachtsmarkt wurde bekannt, dass der mutmaßliche Terrorist im Tat-LKW seine Brieftasche „verloren“ haben soll, was seine Identifizierung ermöglichte. Ein seltsamer „Zufall“. Auch zum geopolitischen Umfeld der Anschläge stellen sich Fragen.

Why The Failed Turkish Coup Attempt Wasn’t A “False Flag” Power Grab By Erdogan

Why The Failed Turkish Coup Attempt Wasn’t A “False Flag” Power Grab By Erdogan
By Andrew Korybko
Global Research, July 18, 2016
(…)
but going along with this theory for a moment, it’s conceivable that he could have even been tipped off by Russian intelligence about what was going to happen. Moscow could have offered up the details of this plan as a trust-building gesture in the run-up to the game-changing Russian-Turkish detente, and also because Russia didn’t want the US and its informational allies to lay the blame at its feet if it failed.
Erdogan, uncontrollably enraged at the US for trying to orchestrate his humiliating future downfall on live TV, might then have committed to his country’s gradual Eurasian reorientation, but knew that he would need publicly justifiable grounds for doing so, ergo allowing the compromised American plan to proceed so that he can squash it right afterwards and use it to explain his country’s foreign policy pivot.
Actions Speak Louder Than Speculation
Anyhow, whether Erdogan was caught completely unaware by the coup or decided in advance to capitalize off of it, the sequence of events that has played out in its aftermath offers convincing proof that the forcible regime change attempt was directed by the US.
Turkish Labor Minister Suleyman Soylu came out and said as much, but Prime Minister Binali Yildirim was more diplomatic when he said about Gulen that “I do not see any country that would stand behind this man, this leader of the terrorist gang, especially after last night. The country that would stand behind this man is no friend to Turkey. It would even be a hostile act against Turkey.” The concurrent de-facto neutralization of the US airbase in Incirlik through the imposition of a no-fly zone (though not formally stated as such), the cutting off of power to all of its facilities, and the arrest of its commander General Bekir Ercan Van on the base’s premises for his coup involvement all very strongly suggest that this isn’t just a stage-crafted melodramatic power grab by Erdogan, but the opening stages of a serious geopolitical reorientation away from the US.
Whether the US remains in Incirlik or not is actually a moot point, since the profound symbolism around what’s unfolding is much more substantial than the Pentagon’s physical presence there. Never before in history has the US been cut off from its own nuclear weapons, which is essentially what’s happened with the no-fly zone and power shutoff to Incirlik. Erdogan is trying to convey in the most memorable and impactful way possible that he is the Sultan over all of Turkey — including Incirlik — and that he will not tolerate having the facility used against him for actively aiding and sheltering coup plotters. In response to this unthinkable disrespect from a former quisling, the US is now preparing a vicious Hybrid War offensive against Erdogan, one which might even escalate to the level of geopolitically dismembering Turkey and throwing the more than 70 million people who inhabit the Neo-Ottoman “caliphate” into a cauldron of chaos that could then be strategically redirected against Russia and Iran.

Top German Journalist: „We all lie for the CIA“, zerohedge, 28.03.2016

Martin Zeis, 29.03.2016

Dear all,

occasional we’ve covered the more subtile and the blunt methods of the German/US mass media misleading and deceiving the public.

Rarely disclosed is the decisive role intelligencies – above all the CIA – are playing. Fallen into oblivion – e.g. in Germany – are illustrative books like Erich Schmidt-Eenboom’s Geheimdienst, Politik und Medien – Meinungsmache Undercover, published in 2004, who documents a list of 100+ top/leading journalist of major German newspapers (Stern, Spiegel, Süddeutsche and so on) payed by the German foreign intelligence service BND (Bundesnachrichtendienst).

Yesterday Tyler Durden (zerohedge) compiled some (recent) witnesses uncovering this hidden practice.

Following extracts – full text attached.

Greets,

Top German Journalist Admits Mainstream Media Is Completely Fake: „We All Lie For The CIA“
Submitted by Tyler Durden on 03/28/2016 22:40

With the increasing propaganda wars, we thought a reminder of just how naive many Westerners are when it comes to their news-feed. As Arjun Walia, of GlobalResearch.ca, notes, Dr. Ulfkotte went on public television stating that he was forced to publish the works of intelligence agents under his own name, also adding that noncompliance with these orders would result in him losing his job. (1)
(…)
One (out of many) great examples of a whistleblowing reporter is investigative journalist and former CBC News reporter Sharyl Attkisson.
She delivered a hard-hitting TEDx talk showing how fake grassroots movements funded by political, corporate, or other special interests very effectively manipulate and distort media messages.

(…)
Ever since Operation Mockingbird, a CIA-based initiative to control mainstream media, more and more people are expressing their concern that what we see in the media is nothing short of brainwashing. (2) This is also evident by blatant lies that continue to spam the TV screen, especially when it comes to topics such as health, food, war (‘terrorism‘), poverty, and more.
Things have not changed, in fact, when in comes to mainstream media distorting information and telling lies. They have gotten much worse in recent years, in fact, so it is highly encouraging that more people are starting to see through these lies (…)
One great example is the supposed ‘war on terror,’ or ‘false flag terrorism.’ There are even Wikileaks documents alluding to the fact that the United States government planned to “retaliate and cause pain” to countries refusing GMOs. (3)
Mainstream media’s continual support of GMOs rages on, despite the fact that a number of countries are now banning these products. (4) …

„Am besten dokumentierte Massentötung“

Quelle: Friendly Fire in Kiew? | Telepolis

Die Untersuchungen zu den vier am 20. Februar erschossenen und mehr als 30 Verwundeten Polizisten laufen getrennt von dem Verfahren zu den erschossenen Maidankämpfern und -helfern ab – obwohl mehrere Beweise, wie gleiche Kugeln und vergleichbare Schusswunden darauf hindeuten, dass Polizei und Demonstranten durch dieselben Schützen getötet wurden, unterstreicht Ivan Katchanovski. „Die Ermittler haben nicht mal versucht, die Kugeln zu vergleichen, um herauszufinden, ob beide Gruppen aus denselben Waffen getötet wurden.“

Es sei unmöglich, dass erfahrene GPU-Ermittler so viele grundlegende Fehler immer in Richtung der Regierungsversion vom Massaker nur zufällig begehen, zweifelt Katchanovski. „Das Maidan-Massaker ist vielleicht die am besten dokumentierte Massentötung in der Geschichte.“ Es wäre durchaus schnell zu lösen gewesen, ist der gebürtige Westukrainer überzeugt. Das dies nicht geschehen sei, sei nur ein weiterer Indikator dafür, dass die Untersuchungen aus politischen Gründen bis heute verfälscht werden. (…)

Caught On Tape: The Moment Boris Nemtsov Was Assassinated

Caught On Tape: The Moment Boris Nemtsov Was Assassinated

As the world contemplates the various ‚provocation‘ scenarios – a Russian act, a CIA act meant to look like a Russian act, or a Russian act meant to look like a CIA act? – the following clip suggests this was anything but an ad hoc shooting…

The narrator suggests, as Nemtsov and his companion are walking along the road, a garbage truck (or cleaning vehicle) is behind them. When the garbage truck comes alongside the couple, it slows down, then moves ahead, then stops… and another man leaves the vehicle and jumps in a following car, which speeds away with tires smoking…

Nemtsov’s Assassination on CCTV – Video: 30sec

As Ukraineatwar blog concludes,
The video seems to be real, because the location EXACTLY fits the know murder spot. It does not seem likely that such a video could have been prepared in advance.

The murder EXACTLY takes place when the cleaning vehicle passes by. It is absolutely unclear where the assassin come from. Nobody can be seen walking towards or behind Nemtsov and his companion. Neither can somebody be seen walking to that specific spot to wait for them.

Therefore it seems very likely that the cleaning vehicle has something to do with it and the assassin could have traveled with the vehicle.

Since Nemtsov was shot from behind and the cleaning vehicle already caught up with them when the murder took place, it does not seem likely that the assassin traveled on the passenger seat next to the driver. He had to open and close the door and that may have drawn their attention. It seems likely that he had traveled on the back of the car. He could easily jump on and off and could also estimate if there were other people to close to them to do the operation at all at that moment.

Using a cleaning vehicle gives a lot of advantage: you can drive slowly, draw no attention, wait if necessary and thus pick exactly the right moment (with no other people nearby).

It does seem like the assassin had been following the couple already when he jumped on the vehicle. They may have crossed the road where the cleaning car was waiting. After seeing them pass by, it started entering the bridge. When they passed the assassin, he jumped on. In this way they could be sure that they had the right person AND they could pick the right moment without running to catch them up.

All the getaway car had to do was to wait until the cleaning vehicle got on the bridge, see the hit man jumped on and then get to follow from a distance to slowly catch up.

It all does look like a REALLY WELL orchestrated operation.

Totally weird is that there is no traffic at all behind them. Such a moment is very hard to pick, especially when you can see that there are many cars before the assassination moment. Right after the car picks up the assassin, new cars start arriving again. This indicates there had been some ‚orchestration‘ here too. Either traffic lights had been red on all fronts or traffic had been halted in another way.
* * *

Of course – while this seems very coordinated – one might question the fact that surely they would be aware that cameras would be everywhere?

* * *

Questions remain, but Soviet ex-President Mikail Gorbachev is sure, the assassination of opposition politician Boris Nemtsov as an attempt to destabilize Russia. As Sputnik News reports,
„The assassination of Boris Nemtsov is an attempt to complicate the situation in the country, even to destabilize it by ratcheting up tensions between the government and the opposition,” Gorbachev said.

“Just who did this is hard to say, let’s not jump to any conclusions right now and give the investigators time to sort this all out,” he added.

Gorbachev did not rule out that the high-profile murder could encourage some people to urge the authorities to introduce a state of emergency, which he said would only exacerbate what is already a difficult situation.

Von Račak zum Majdan; german-foreign-policy, 23.02.2015

Hallo zusammen,

der folgend dokumentierte Bericht auf german-foreign-policy.com ergänzt die in letzten Tagen hier geposteten Beiträge zum US-gelenkten Putsch in Kiew und zu dem Chaos und völlige Verängstigung auslösenden Schock-Ereignis, dem Scharfschützen-Massenmord an über hundert Maidan-Protestierenden, Polizisten, … Diese Psych-Op, wie sie in Geheimdienstkreisen genannt wird, wurde sofort und unisono in den Massenmedien des Westens (und nicht nur dort) ausschließlich der Janukowitsch-Regierung in die Schuhe geschoben – in typischer false-flag-Manier, bei der man die eigenen Verbrechen einem anderen (der Gegenseite, dem „Feind“, der „bösen“ Seite …) zuordnet (vgl. Bröckers/Schreyer: Wir sind die Guten; Westend-Verlag Sept. 2014 — Kapitel 5, 6, 7: Besser als Krieg: Farb-Revolutionen und Fake-Demokratie; CIA: Sechzig Jahre Erfahrung in der Ukraine; Tod auf Bestellung: Regimewechsel durch Scharfschützen; S. 69 – 95).
