An OPCW investigator and real whistleblower, has claimed that the OPCW’s findings in Douma, Syria misrepresented facts over related to the 2018 chlorine “attack.”

Tucker Carlson reporting on the OPCW whistleblower and the Syria chemical weapons false flag (starts at 33:00)..

Via The Guardian…

The head of the world’s chemical weapons watchdog has defended its conclusion that chlorine was used in an attack in Syria in April 2018, after a whistleblower alleged the report misrepresented some of the facts amid Russian claims that the watchdog is being politicised by the west.

WikiLeaks at the weekend published an email from a member of the fact-finding team that investigated the attack which accused the body of altering the original findings of investigators to make evidence of a chemical attack seem more conclusive.

After the attack on 7 April 2018 in the suburb of Damascus, the US, France and Britain launched missile attacks on suspected chemical weapons facilities run by President Bashar al Assad’s army. Russia and Assad have always denied a chemical attack occurred, saying it was probably staged by UK intelligence.

Alexander Shulgin, Russia’s ambassador to the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) at its annual forum in the Hague, said the official report into the attack was “distorting reality”.

The OPCW director general, Fernando Arias, defended the report, telling member countries: “the nature of any thorough inquiry for individuals in a team to express subjective views. While some of these diverse views continue to circulate in some public discussion forums, I would like to reiterate that I stand by the independent, professional conclusion [of the investigation].”

He was supported by the French ambassador, Luis Vassy, who said the Syrian investigation was impartial, professional and rigorous. He added he trusted the OPCW team of experts, and said his country was providing €1m (£854,000) to the investigatory team. Annabel Goldie, the defence minister, said the UK also had full confidence in the hardworking women and men of the OPCW technical secretariat, adding Britain was confident they “would continue to work professionally thoroughly and impartially.”

Shulgin, citing an email from a member of the investigating team dated June 2018 and an earlier document, questioned the conclusion by the OPCW in March 2019 that chlorine was used in Douma.

The leaked email by an investigator described as “Alex” and quoted by WikiLeaks expresses the “gravest concern”, saying the OPCW report “misrepresents the facts”, contains “unintended bias” and simplifies conclusions.

The email says the published OPCW report into the attack changed the language on the levels of chlorine allegedly found compared with what investigators had originally wrote.

It also questions whether or not the chemical came from barrels found at the scene, and whether those barrels had been dropped from the air – which would indicate Assad’s forces – or placed there manually there – which would indicate it was staged by Syrian rebels. The whistleblower said the published report’s conclusions on the barrels deviated significantly from the draft.

The leaks, probably designed to coincide with the start of the OPCW annual conference, were seized on by Russia to construct a claim that the OPCW is gradually being politicised by the west to put Assad on trial for the use of chemical weapons in Syria. Last year, despite Russian objections, the OPCW for the first time was given powers not just to investigate whether an attack had occurred, but identify the parties responsible.

Arias said details of the Douma incident had been passed to the new team set up to name the perpetrators.

Tucker Carlson is on the right side of history. And if he’s ever kicked off the air, he can make his own successful podcast [just like Joe Rogan].

He’s also on the right side of climate change. I watched him recently express serious reservations about CO2.

There is a sensational story waiting to be told, about links between recent warming and el Nino, and between el Nino and undersea volcanism. I can’t wait for Tucker Carlson to find out about it.

The OPCW report is a total scam. According to the whistleblower, they found chlorine compounds as low as 2 ppb (parts per billion). The soil categories below in the natural environment show soil classes containing compounds in ppm (parts per million). A thousand times higher. Concentrations in ppb is a joke. The head of the OPCW is a charlatan.

Table 7. Chloride (Cl) soil test categories and suggested fertilizer rate recommendations.

Soil test Cl (ppm)

Very low 0–5 (i.e. 0-5000 ppb)
Low 5–10
Medium 10–20
High 20–50
Excessive >50

Great show gentlemen. Canadian journalist Eva Bartlett has been reporting the same thing for about 2 years. She an award winning journo who has been in Syria for many years. You’ll find more info with her.

You can find it if you search for it. Others have saved it and are keeping it available for reference. (However, better not use “google” as your search engine, since it may be monitoring…)

Yet again the most worrying aspect of this whole story is the fact the mainstream media – with the few exception mentioned – either don’t cover this at all or provide mealy-mouthed apologetics. The evidence mounts up daily that we live in s dystopian world controlled by cowardly or greedy or simply evil scumbags.

I watched an interview of Ted Postol with Aaron Mate recently on this subject. It was excellent with one exception: Postol said Assad was a war criminal. Mate agreed. EVIDENCE?? I have seen none.

Why, because his bombs kill civilians too? Lock up every POTUS starting with George Washington then.

It becomes “tiring”…is that the objective. The initial reports I heard, as reported by the white helmets via selfies posted by many networks was that it was “sarin”…not chlorine…and the “white helmets” “inspecting” the bomb “crater” immediately after the “supposed” attack vis a vis “selfies” without the benefits of “hazmat” apparel was ludicrous if “sarin” was involved…even so if it was chlorine…

Why unthinkable? Every rightwing fuck has absolved Assad from chemical attacks, including Lyndon Larouche, David Duke, Peter Hitchens, Pamela Geller, Nigel Farage, Richard Spencer, and Marine Le Pen.

Louis, you’re continuous living proof that the left has no brains in its collective head, and unwittingly serves the enemy of the people (the Deep State) by maintaining opposing positions. An empty appearance of righteousness is all you can muster — selectively assembling a litany of names simply to brand them (as “rightwing f**ks”) is unconvincing. It’s as if all previous regime change operations by corrupt Western powers (whether neocon or neolib) haven’t sunk into your little head yet, and that Assad is just their latest attempt seems to have excaped you. The left will never succeed, Louis. It is… Read more »

Never try to extract a demojihadi’s beliefs out of them with anything resembling reality. They’ll wither and die and be left in a pool of steaming gelatinous goo on the tarmac.
