OPCW CERTIFIED: Chemical weapons “attack” in Douma, Syria was ISIS/White Helmets false flag (Video)

The OPCW issued an interim report that states no traces of any nerve agents have been found at the site of a suspected chemical attack in the Syrian city of Douma.

The report noted that several chlorine compounds were detected, but those compounds are commonly found in industrial areas and often times are byproducts of water purification systems. The interim OPCW document said “various chlorinated organic chemicals were found in samples” from two locations in the Damascus suburb of Douma, which were examined by specialists from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

The report confirmed the absence of any traces of nerve agents, such as sarin, at the site.

The conclusion…another false flag has been exposed. And to think that the White Helmets, the jihadist “first responder” group that staged this entire “chemical weapons attack” in Douma, almost successfully pushed a war between Russia and the United States.

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss OPCW findings and how the report vindicates Assad and Russia while completely embarrassing US war hawks and their mainstream media mouthpieces that pushed for all out conflict in Syria over what is now clearly a false flag orchestrated by ISIS/White Helmet jihadists.

Technical notes in the OPCW report specify that one of its laboratories found traces of dichloroacetic acid, trichloroacetic acid, chloral hydrate, trichlorophenol and chlorophenol in some of the samples. Some of these chemicals, such as dichloroacetic acid and chloral hydrate, are known byproducts of water purification. Another OPCW laboratory only reported finding “no CWC-scheduled chemicals,” meaning nothing that was banned under the Chemical Weapons Convention.

The OPCW sent a fact-finding mission to Douma in April, around a week after the alleged incident. During the same month, Russia said that chlorine containers from Germany, which apparently belonged to militants, were found in the liberated parts of Douma.

Later, the Russian military found an entire laboratory operated by militants in central Douma, which was capable of producing chemical weapons. The lab had some sophisticated equipment, including an industrial chemical reactor, which was apparently used by the militants to create toxic agents. The footage, taken by Russian journalists inside the facility, also showed vast stockpiles of various chemicals, some of which were produced in Germany, as well as empty mortar shells that can be filled with poisonous substances.

The purported chemical incident in Douma allegedly took place on April 7. A week later, Washington and its allies launched a massive retaliatory missile strike against Syria, without waiting for the OPCW to start its investigation of the incident.

The OPCW report comes about a week after the OPCW was granted authority not only to investigate whether any alleged chemical attack took place, but also to assign blame for them. Moscow then warned that the move that actually drove a wedge between some key OPCW members could lead to a situation, which the chemical watchdog would be used as a political tool.

The fact that no chemical weapons, sarin gas or nerve agents were found in Douma did not stop the fake news mainstream media from flat out lying about the OPCW’s preliminary findings.

Some mainstream media are outright lying about the OPCW report on the alleged ‘chemical attack’ in Douma.

The Washington Post writes:

[A] global watchdog concluded that chlorine was indeed used in the city of Douma a day before rebel forces surrendered there.

In an interim report released Friday, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said its inspectors had discovered traces of “various chlorinated organic chemicals” across two sites it inspected.

The OPCW did not conclude at all that “chlorine was indeed used”. It found some chemical compounds which have chlorine, carbon and hydrogen in various configurations as their main elements. There are hundreds if not thousands of “chlorinated organic chemicals”. A plastic pipe made from polyvenylchlorid (PVC = (C2H3Cl)n) is made of the same elements. One could call it a “chlorinated organic chemical”. Burning something made of PVC will releases various compounds many of which will themselves be “chlorinated organic chemicals”. But finding residues of a burned plastic pipe or isolation in a home does not mean that chlorine gas was used in that place. Several of the compounds the OPCW found result from using chlorine to disinfect water. They can be found within the chlorinated water and about anywhere where chlorinated water was used.

The BBC made a similar ‘mistake’. It headlined “Syria war: Douma attack was chlorine gas – watchdog”.

It took extensive social-media outrage and several hours for the BBC to correct its ‘mistake’. It now headlines: Syria war: ‘Possible chlorine’ at Douma attack site – watchdog. That is better but still a lie. Nowhere do the OPCW report or its Technical Statement (pdf) use the expression ‘possible chlorine’. No editorial note was added by the BBC to reveal that the original dispatch was changed.

The Daily Beast headlines: Watchdog: Chlorine Was Used in Syria’s Chemical Attack

The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons determined that chlorine was used in the chemical attack in the Syrian town of Douma, but found no evidence that nerve agents were involved.

That is an outright lie. The OPCW report does not say that chlorine was used. It mentions chlorine only twice and only in relation to previous incidents.

The Independent, AlJazeerah, the Australian ABC News and others offer the same lie to their readers.

A possible reason why so many outlets made this ‘mistake’ is the British news agency Reuters which first distributed this false claim:

Reuters has since changed the headline and text of that item from “chlorine” to “chlorinated chemicals” but attached no note of that change. Moreover it does not explain that “chlorinated chemicals” will be found about anywhere.

It is doubtful that these ‘mistakes’ were made out of sloppiness. The writers likely intend to create the false impression that Syria was responsible for a ‘chemical attack’ that did not happen. They would otherwise have to expose the lies they published and told about the incident:

Senior US officials expressed confidence Saturday that both chlorine and sarin gas were used in Syria’s alleged chemical weapons attack on the Damascus enclave of Douma last week — a conclusion that went a step further than Vice President Mike Pence did in his remarks earlier Saturday. They would further have to explain that the U.S., France and the UK illegally launched a large cruise missile attack on Syria without any reason.

Very pleased to see that Alex Chistoforou was repeatedly using the term false flag.
When the Western public is finally awoken and thinks continually in terms of false flags then the side of righteousness will have won and the side of evil will have lost.

“THE object of this volume is not to cast fresh blame on authorities and individuals, nor is it to expose one nation more than another to accusations of deceit. Falsehood is a recognized and extremely useful weapon in warfare, and every country uses it quite deliberately to deceive its own people, to attract neutrals, and to mislead the enemy. The ignorant and innocent masses in each country are unaware at the time that they are being misled, and when it is all over only here and there are the falsehoods discovered and exposed. As it is all past history and… Read more »

Like the truth even matters to US propaganda, I mean, “news”, or US political scum, or US “intelligence” agencies. The media simply won’t report on this, or possibly will just outright lie about the findings, the scumbag politicians won’t acknowledge it, and the intelligence agencies, as always, will just plod along. US went fascist at least 16 years ago when Bush Jr. lied the nation into Iraq, and nothing happened to him or his administration for doing it. The only fallout was anybody telling the truth in the intelligence agencies, was fired. Americans sold the last of their collective soul… Read more »

yeah well, we ALL KNEW that before hand, so where is Russia screaming about this at the UN and where is Putin talking about it everywhere? The most important question is why Putin and Russia are NOT talking about it?

There must be a lot of journalists but I can’t simply understand how come they could not discuss chemical analysis procedure. Back in 2017, Nikki Haley at the Security Council shouted that sarin made by Assad was used in Idlib on April 5 showing the photos of poor kids, a day after the alleged incident. Then, 59 Tomahawk missiles were shot two days later, on April 7. Unless Haley was informed beforehand, she could not claim sarin because it is colorless and odorless. You must take the following procedure to identify the compound; 1) You must collect body samples such… Read more »

Note the Ukrainian ‘colors’ of their logo.

No wonder the Albino Dwarf Lesbian Queen of Canada, Chrystia Freeland, invited them to move to her Heartland – Alberta.

These ‘folks’ will get along nicely with the Ukro-Fascist Bandero-Terrorists who have lived there since the CIA’s Operation Gladio planted them there.

These scumbags would be equally fitting dual-passport bearers of Israel and The Ukraine.

Poor Canada.
