@MaxBlumenthal @L_Gale517 @MaxAbrahms Interesting. @James__Harkin wrote an article on Douma for @theintercept , one which suggested an attack had occurred but was surrounded by much propaganda. @Dalatrm concurred and claimed the hospital scene were staged:-
@MaxBlumenthal @L_Gale517 @MaxAbrahms @James__Harkin @theintercept @Dalatrm 1) @James__Harkin also chaired the @cijournalism debate between @EliotHiggins and Professor Postol whilst @weizman_eyal & @ForensicArchi provided technical support to Higgins in that debate: hiddensyria.com/2020/03/06/for…
@MaxBlumenthal @L_Gale517 @MaxAbrahms @James__Harkin @theintercept @Dalatrm @cijournalism @EliotHiggins @weizman_eyal @ForensicArchi 3) Question, was Professor Postol made aware of the connection between Higgins, Weizman and Harkin prior to the debate? @PhilipWatson_ @2ndNewMoon. Was this debate and its organisation cleared by research ethics at @GoldsmithsUoL?
@MaxBlumenthal @L_Gale517 @MaxAbrahms @James__Harkin @theintercept @Dalatrm @cijournalism @EliotHiggins @weizman_eyal @ForensicArchi @PhilipWatson_ @2ndNewMoon @GoldsmithsUoL 4) Professor Postol, of course, was questioning whether alleged chemical weapon attacks had occurred in Syria. Higgins, Weizman and Harkin have all claimed that a chemical weapon attack did occur at Douma.
@MaxBlumenthal @L_Gale517 @MaxAbrahms @James__Harkin @theintercept @Dalatrm @cijournalism @EliotHiggins @weizman_eyal @ForensicArchi @PhilipWatson_ @2ndNewMoon @GoldsmithsUoL 6) and just last week someone in the OPCW leaked false information to @bellingcat in an attempt to smear an OPCW inspector and discredit the many people who have questioned what really happened at Douma:-
@MaxBlumenthal @L_Gale517 @MaxAbrahms @James__Harkin @theintercept @Dalatrm @cijournalism @EliotHiggins @weizman_eyal @ForensicArchi @PhilipWatson_ @2ndNewMoon @GoldsmithsUoL @bellingcat 7) of course, @bellingcat @ForensicArchi worked with the @nytimes to produce an 'investigation' of the alleged attack at Douma:- nytimes.com/interactive/20… claiming the attack had occurred well in advance of the final OPCW report. @malachybrowne @RobertMackey @jeremyscahill
@MaxBlumenthal @L_Gale517 @MaxAbrahms @James__Harkin @theintercept @Dalatrm @cijournalism @EliotHiggins @weizman_eyal @ForensicArchi @PhilipWatson_ @2ndNewMoon @GoldsmithsUoL @bellingcat @nytimes @malachybrowne @RobertMackey @jeremyscahill 8) the links between @bellingcat, @theintercept , @ForensicArchi are obviously of concern and suggest clear conflicts of interest, possible co-ordination, as well as an unscientific approach to claims making regarding the alleged attack at Douma. @Tim_Hayward_ @2ndNewMoon
@MaxBlumenthal @L_Gale517 @MaxAbrahms @James__Harkin @theintercept @Dalatrm @cijournalism @EliotHiggins @weizman_eyal @ForensicArchi @PhilipWatson_ @2ndNewMoon @GoldsmithsUoL @bellingcat @nytimes @malachybrowne @RobertMackey @jeremyscahill @Tim_Hayward_ 9) this is made all the more serious by the fact that we now know, from leaked toxicology reports, that these civilians were not killed by chlorine at location 2
@MaxBlumenthal @L_Gale517 @MaxAbrahms @James__Harkin @theintercept @Dalatrm @cijournalism @EliotHiggins @weizman_eyal @ForensicArchi @PhilipWatson_ @2ndNewMoon @GoldsmithsUoL @bellingcat @nytimes @malachybrowne @RobertMackey @jeremyscahill @Tim_Hayward_ 11) Involvement, witting or unwitting, in the cover up of a warcrime runs legal risks. This presentation, at the invite of the late Julian Perry Robinson, leading expert on chem/biological weapons, assesses the evidence w.r.t. how these civilians died. syriapropagandamedia.org/wp-content/upl…

@GeorgeMonbiot 's accusation of atrocity denial and truth distortion' by @ClarkeMicah is misleading. In fact, it is Monbiot who has consistently ignored extensive evidence that challenges his beliefs regarding alleged chemical weapon attacks in Syria. This evidence includes:-
1) the @couragefound panel which heard testimony from an OPCW official regarding procedural and scientific fraud during the @OPCW 's investigation of the alleged chlorine chemical weapon attack in Douma, 2018:- couragefound.org/2019/10/opcw-p… @Tim_Hayward_ @2ndNewMoon
2) Leaked documents have confirmed that OPCW inspectors had their analyses censored and suppressed in order to ensure the final report reached a 'preordained conclusion' wikileaks.org/opcw-douma/#OP…

A key question now concerns why individuals within the OPCW are leaking false information designed to smear one of their inspectors? And why is this being leaked to @bellingcat, a state-sponsored propaganda outlet? @RealDeeptiC @ClarkeMicah @PeterCronau @johnpilger @SMaurizi
1) We know from @MichaKobs' investigation that @bellingcat were in communication with individuals manipulating a yellow cylinder at location 2 in Douma:-
2) Remarkably, this manipulation involved the rotation of the cylinder through 180 degrees, lining up a dent with a rebar, and then tilting it so that the nozzle is pointing into the hole.

Rather than addressing substantive issues raised by many regarding their investigation of the alleged chemical weapon attack in Douma, Syria, the @opcw has responded by leaking a letter from its DG, Fernando Arias, & revealing the identify of one of its scientists. @RealDeeptiC
1) Remarkably the @opcw has chosen to leak this information to @bellingcat, a well-known state sponsored propaganda outlet. Interestingly @bellingcat was in communication with individuals manipulating the alleged crime scene at location 2 in Douma:
2)@EliotHiggins is well known for his abusive behaviour whilst @bellingcat conspired with @ForensicArchi and @cijournalism to rig a public debate between Higgins and eminent US scientist Ted Postol (report forthcoming) @James__Harkin @weizman_eyal see also hiddensyria.com/2020/03/06/for…

One year ago today, the Courage Foundation Panel received testimony from an OPCW official detailing fraud and deception during the organisation's investigation of the alleged chemical weapon attack in Douma, Syria: couragefound.org/2019/10/opcw-p…
1) The panel learned many important facts about how information had been suppressed in order to reach 'a preordained conclusion'. The panel included many eminent figures, including the OPCW first Director General Jose Bustani, and has been supported by many more:
2)Within the last two week, although blocked by the US, US and France, Bustani issued a statement to the UN Security Council based upon what he had learned: couragefound.org/2020/10/ex-opc…

@malachybrowne @MaxBlumenthal Dear Mr Browne, would you like to comment on this communication from a senior OPCW official:-
@malachybrowne @MaxBlumenthal 1) Would you also like to comment on why you think this toxicology assessment, from NATO experts, was suppressed in the Final Douma Report?
@malachybrowne @MaxBlumenthal 2) The attached tweet confirms that the cylinder at Location 2 was manipulated and that those doing this were in communication with Bellingcat:- . Any comment

@thomasphipps @RussiaUN @OPCW Thomas, some specific questions. Does the following statement from a senior OPCW official give you cause for concern?
@thomasphipps @RussiaUN @OPCW 2) This documents details the assessment made by NATO toxicologist confirming the deceased at Douma were not poisoned by chlorine gas. Can you ask the @opcw why this consultation was censored come the Final Douma report?
@thomasphipps @RussiaUN @OPCW 3) This BBC producer has repeatedly confirmed the hospital scenes in Douma were staged. Has the UK government requested that the BBC pass this information to the @opcw? If not, why not?
