Chemical attacks in Syria now officially revealed to be fake

Does this warrant its own thread? I think so. Here is a good write-up:
medium.com/@caityjohnstone/confirmed-chemical-weapons-assessment-contradicting-official-syria-narrative-is-authentic-fbcbf7ef281a

So the integrity of the OPCW is pretty much ruined now, isn't it? They withheld critical information in a highly unstable war situation, and the media completely ignores this as well. Together the this:
mintpressnews.com/bbc-producer-says-syria-douma-chemical-attack-footage-was-staged/255152/
This is some incriminating shit.

Also, the absolute state of Bellingcat. Are media outlets still gonna uncritical quote that guy?

Media, Bellingcat and politics have claimed that Assad dropped chemicals on Duoma. Turns out there was never anything dropped but placed on the ground while it was occupied by rebels, making them the likely perpetrators.

Yeah OP I really didn't need a write up to tell me that.

Simple rule: the government is always lieing.
Therefore: if the government says it, of all the things it could possibly be, you can be sure it isn't the thing they said.

If any of you even considered this opcw government line to be possible you should immediately hang up your hat as a leftist. Also I dont think a minty news or clairvoyant.com article is going to affect anything.

As far as sheeple are concerned Assad and Saddam both fated on their Kurds.

I don't entirely agree, because if this gets enough traction and is reported by the media (even though they'll try everything they can to put a lid on it) it can push people to the left and discredit everybody who got along with it.

No, people will believe what they want to believe. I mean shit, liberals are still going with "Russia hacked the elections", and inventing cope excuses for why Mueller couldn't prove anything.

They withheld critical information in a highly unstable war situation, and the media completely ignores this as well
Because the media is a tool of the "establishment". Even Ben Rhodes admitted that most American "journalists" charged with foreign affairs reporting just asked the White House for sitreps on whatever beat they were reporting (as most MSM companies had axed their foreign news divisions)

Are media outlets still gonna uncritical quote that guy?
Of course they will, for the same reasons that none of the punditocracy insisting that Saddam would be dirtybombing every American city if nothing was done were ever punished

Wake the fuck up user. What world are you living in? Stop drinking the koolaid aid. You're only one step better than the people who believe Assad did the gas attack.

The US Media is literally CIA talking to each other.

All the lies about the Soviet Union and China are true to the USA. The USA is the biggest self-projector of the World. But then again the Right always projects. THE LEFT IS VIOLENT! Right does Violence. THERE IS A ZIONIST PLOT! They are the Zionists. THERE IS A GLOBALIST PLOT! They are the Globalists.

This is huge.
“The leaked OPCW engineers’ assessment is confirmed as genuine, which means the final report actively concealed evidence that the Douma chemical attack was staged by jihadists and the White Helmets,” tweeted British journalist Jonathan Cook. “The OPCW’s other Syria reports must now be treated as worthless too.”
I wonder what Metafilter and all the other progressive pro-war Americans will say now? Even Lous Proyect, who doesn't buy into the mainstream news when it comes to Venezuela, has blogged positively about the White Helmets and so on. Of course, they won't say anything if they don't hear about it first. So spread the word!

Oh wow I am shocked! Another bourgeois imperialist organization serves imperialist interests!

Marxism is about the criticism and upheaval of the current way of things. If revolution comes, then ALL institutions and organisations that currently exist under capitalism will be DESTROYED. The ONLY thing we will retain from the old society is the infrastructure, all else will either be destroyed or radically altered.

I mean, we can believe the holocaust happend while also believing the gas attacks by Assad never did. Some Zionist kvetching about how the denial of the two is similar doesn't change that. That's like comparing the holodomor and the holocaust together and then stating that our denial of the holodohoax is the same as holocaust denial.

But yeah, holocaust deflection/comparison by Zionists is definitely a thing and it's nothing new. It's pretty much their go to argument.

Grayson Brown
Grayson Brown

Friendly reminder that the real holocaust deniers are the Zionists who only count the deaths of specifically the Jewish people put to death in camps (6 million) and not the non-Jews who died in the camps (5 million) or anybody who was killed outside the camps (6 million), many of whom were Jewish. They need the death toll to be 6 million specifically, and they're only concerned with Jewish deaths, because that's all that matters to the prophecy about Jews returning to Israel.

Blake Powell

Liberals and Wahhabis push the idea that Assad runs a "genocidal Alawite regime" bent on wiping out the Sunnis. Despite the fact that majority of government supporters, the army, and the government itself are Sunni.
In reality, if there is anyone trying to carry out a genocide in Syria it is the rebels.

As you've already guessed, they don't really care either way, since the punditocracy that argues for and defends this shit would simply move onto the next interventionist cause without a single care.

Reminds me of that British defence secretary who recently whined about "persecution of Christians in the Middle East" but was on record defending arms sales to the Saudis because "they're our based allies :^)"

specifically the Jewish people put to death in camps
The 6 million figure is actually not even just those in camps, they count every Jewish person killed as part of that figure whether they were shot along the way or killed by "indirect" means.

If by "researching current events" you mean scrounging blogs to find something that fits what I already believe, then no. If you mean finding PRIMARY SOURCES, then it would appear that I'm the only one in this thread who knows how to research current events, because I haven't seen anyone here actually discussing the report (linked below).

drive.google.com/file/d/1ayBv-nEOMTtIc-QOvejQBdCnZQXTuJ5z/view

My point is that OP should have just linked to that instead of one article from a right wing conspiracy theory website, and another from a blog hosting site.

It links to sources where the OPCW admits the leaks are legit.
I would still like a link to this. I can't find it in the medium article.

You are not a child, it is your responsibility to be a principled Marxist and do research. Anons already gave you links to evidence, so if it wasn't satisfactory for you, it's your job to investigate further and bring back your findings.

Also the Medium article linked to two tweets from journalists Peter Hitchens and Brian Whitaker have both published matching statements from the OPCW on this report. Here's the one taken from Whittaker. The article also mentions how Ian Henderson is very much a real person that has a long history at the OPCW.
