The report misrepresented the facts: WikiLeaks published a letter from an OPCW employee about a chemical attack in Syria

31

Investigative site WikiLeaks has published a publication on the work of Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical weapons (OPCW) in Syria. This is the organization that at one time received the Nobel Peace Prize for "assistance in the chemical disarmament of Syria."


A letter from an OPCW employee dated June 2018 is provided on WikiLix. The employee informs his management that during the preparation of the report on the “chemical attack” in the suburb of Damascus - the city of Duma - serious distortions of real facts were committed.

In particular, the report stated that "chemical weapons were used in the Duma in April 2018 of the year," and the bomb stuffed with the poisonous substance was dropped from the air. "

The representative of the OPCW in his letter indicates that after the preparation of the report, amendments were made to its text, which eventually distorted the essence. In particular, alleged evidence of the use of chlorine near Damascus was announced. A member of the OPCW mission notes that some traces of chlorine in the Duma were discovered, but there were so few that it was impossible to reliably speak of a chemical attack. According to him, it could very well be chlorine from household chemical products, including bleaches.

The representative of the OPCW notes that the report also misrepresented information about “victims of the chemical attack.” So, the text of the report contains words about the signs of poisoning, but these signs had nothing to do with those that would be characteristic if chlorine were used. Materials about "chemical weapons delivery vehicles" were also distorted. So, in the report there appeared data about a dropped chemical bomb - the one that (according to the well-known photo), having broken through the roof of the building, somehow ended up on the bed without damage.

It should be recalled that the OPCW mission arrived in the Duma only two weeks after the allegations of the alleged use of chemical weapons there.

An additional important detail: the United States and representatives of the so-called American coalition attacked the positions of the Syrian government army, without waiting for the conclusions of the Organization’s mission to ban chemical weapons.

    The Moor did his job ... just lied! And nothing else was required of him!

    These are the "Moors" tasks, for which they give buns.

        Hi soldier
        Those "Moors" were evacuated on time and will do their "righteous" deed in another place!
        Valuable resource however!
        You can get to them, only make them martyrs, i.e. clean, occupation is empty and harmful!
        The screech will be higher than the roof, and the Maurits will be recruited.
        Caught in the arm, not almond ... like, it flew by itself! Chasing the world for this guano, pfe-e-e on them.

          In principle, it is clear that it was enough to fly up into the store of detergents, as the United States had an occasion to accuse Syria of using chemical weapons against the population and strike.

    They (OPCW) simply play for another team, posing as neutral, independent judges.

    This is good, but late. Now the tactics are such, a provocation is being made to which Western media are actively connecting. When the task is completed,
    everything calms down. If the truth breaks through, then it is already losing its relevance.

        The court in The Hague plays on the side of the United States. Therefore, Syria cannot count on any compensation.

      Show me the sane person who will pick up a glass tube without wearing even rubber gloves, knowing that it contains real anthrax spores, and even drag it to a UN meeting? So what was Colin Powell's test tube? Isn’t it time for everyone to find out?
      But in the UN they believed .... or pretended to believe. So is Syrian chlorine ...

    However, who would be surprised? Looking for the truth in the newspapers? It is naive. It’s generally stupid to look for her if lying (distorting facts) is beneficial, in favor of someone strong. And he will throw buns. It will be something to "reassure" conscience ...

    The fact that this whole “attack” is a crookedly re-enactment was initially understandable even from the “evidence” of white helmets to any humanoid with a brain weight of just over 200 g. And to those who, as they say, "even stsy in the eye, all God's dew," you still can’t prove anything.

    The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in Syria. This is the organization that at one time received the Nobel Peace Prize for "assistance in the chemical disarmament of Syria."
    So we must demand the return of the prize, however, the Nobel Peace has long been discredited.

    The report distorted the facts
    Is that the first report in which the facts were distorted? Everyone knew perfectly well who created the provocations and at the request of whom, what the “White Helmets” really were, but the political component was higher than honesty and impartiality. The same thing happened with "Russian interference" in the US election, before that with Boeing, Skripals, doping .... Isn't it too much? For the collective West, the main thing is that at that time, the lie played a role.

    Well, that the blow was delivered from the air, this is not news. And by whom it was applied is also not news. But for more than 200 years of the US’s existence, they have been “saying” to the whole world that the country of Great American Lakes is the most democratic, the most peaceful country in the world, and even invented some kind of paper that says about the rights of people, but they forgot what kind of people to write. Well, it can’t be by birth at all, such a country can be cruel, because everyone can come and see (the local people didn’t let me in) on their land, the local population lives freely in the reservations, so that tourists or migrants do not bother themselves from Britain and Europe took on a heavy burden to rule this country. What faith can be to people who were born liars.

    Additional important detail: USA and representatives of the so-called American coalition attacked the positions of the Syrian government armywithout waiting for the conclusions of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons mission.

    An additional important detail: Syria and its allies have every right to launch missile and bomb attacks on the locations of American and pro-American forces in Syria (after a warning - 24 hours to exit) without waiting for the United States to admit their guilt and allocate (at least) funds for damages.
    That is how the “truth” is affirmed precisely from the US side to the rest of the world.

    It was immediately clear that Assad’s “chemical attack” was nonsense and a fabrication, as an excuse to provide his hangers with support for assault attacks on government troops.
    Only complete degenerates of the “Western spill” could believe such a thing, because Assad didn’t run into any region.

    Well, you're like a small chesslovo. In the morning of that day, gathering for a meeting of the UN Security Council, the gallant secretary of state of a big power, Colin, decided to sniff a selected Colombian snow for courage (they can be celestials), which his wife carefully collected in a test tube and gave it to her beloved beloved spouse. He, during the report, decided that his speeches were messy and thought to accept it, so to speak, for courage. Having taken a test tube from his pocket, he was prepared to uncork it, but !!! She was noticed and everyone decided that this is a tank weapon. Well, panicked ...

    And they needed it ?! They needed an informational reason, not a real confirmation or refutation of this information.
    Another "Collin Powell test tube" ...
