Dear @theywoodwright and @chloehadj, you insinuate that @wikileaks paid money to 'Alex'. This is a very serious charge to be suggesting. Before broadcasting, did you check with WL that any money had been paid out? @khrafnsson @ClarkeMicah @bbclysedoucet @nikgowing @Tim_Hayward_
1) You also claim that 'reading the OPCW report, it's clear that the inspectors took the idea that the attack might have been faked very seriously. They discussed it as a scenario and tested their evidence against that possibility." Can you evidence this?
2) This is imp. because it was actually the original unpublished interim report and the toxicology minutes from the meeting with NATO chemical weapons experts that specified alternative hypotheses, whereas the published reports did not.…
3) Both of these were suppressed: the original interim report was secretly redacted by someone in the OPCW without the knowledge of the Douma team. This act of subterfuge was the first event that signalled corruption within the OPCW and reported on here…
4) The clear conclusion of the NATO toxicologists that these victims were not killed by chlorine gas at location 2 was obfuscated in the final report:…
5) So, it is important you evidence your claim that OPCW final report evaluated evidence and counter evidence, because it appears that such attempts at rigorous analysis were actually censored by someone within the OPCW.
6) You also state in the broadcast that the OPCW has said it has given all the inspectors the opportunity to voice their opinions. Can you evidence this as well because, in fact, the core issue throughout concerns the refusal by the OPCW to let dissenting voices be heard
7) There is now considerable evidence in the public domain showing that the OPCW has prevented its scientists from speaking:…
8) So, to repeat, can you evidence your claim that the OPCW says it has allowed all of its inspectors to be heard?
9) It is also very important, @theywoodwright @chloehadj, that you answer Professor Paul McKeigue's question regarding the burial location for the Douma victims. You have evaded this issue, repeatedly.… @bbclysedoucet @NikGowing
10) You use your anonymous source in order to smear Ian Henderson, 'Alex' and Jose Bustani (first DG of the OPCW).This comes shortly after an anonymous source leaked disinformation to @bellingcat also in an attempt to smear 'Alex' @aaronjmate @ClarkeMicah.…
11) Given this, what steps did you take, @theywoodwright & @chloehadj, to establish the expertise and authority of this source? Was he/she actually on the FFM team, did they have expertise in ballistics/chemistry, did they actually deploy to Douma? @ClarkeMicah @Tim_Hayward
12) In fact, is the BBC 100% confident the source they used is indeed from the OPCW? What checks did you undertake in order to verify the source was who he claimed to be and were all BBC editorial guidelines adhered to?@theywoodwright @chloehadj @lysedoucet @NikGowing
13) Another BBC guidelines issue for @ChloeHadj and @theywoodwright concerns their use of an individual who appears to be associated with a group involved with beheading children:
14) Reliance on a source connected, in any way, with a group responsible for child murder is a matter of serious concern for the @bbc and requires immediate investigation @BreesAnna @cerumol @NikGowing @bbclysedoucet @alextomo @lindseyhilsum @jonsnowC4

20) This is why many eminent individuals have called for transparency and accountability at the OPCW:-…
21) These include Professor Noam Chomsky… @aaronjmate @MaxBlumenthal
22) And Jose Bustani himself, the first director General of the OPCW, whose voice was heard even though the US, UK and France tried to silence him at the UN Security Council

In episode 7, the @bbc series 'Mayday' actually obfuscates key evidence with respect to the alleged chemical attack in Douma, 2018, which has been the focus of research by @chloehadj @ruskin147 @Tim_Hayward_ Some facts:-
1) When requested by Professor Paul McKeigue to ask whether Raed Saleh of the White Helmets knew the burial location of the Douma victims, @chloehadj evaded as can be seen here:-…
2)… fails to address the fact that BBC producer @Dalatrm has stated, repeatedly, that the hospital scenes at Douma were staged @bbclysedoucet @NikGowing @BreesAnna @cerumol

@2ndNewMoon @ClarkeMicah @bellingcat @LapCat @aaronjmate @bbclysedoucet @NikGowing @OborneTweets @PeterCronau @TulsiGabbard @SusanSarandon @Tim_Hayward_ @PhilipWatson_ 1) @bellingcat were caught deleting a tweet which confirmed the cylinder at location 2 was manipulated by activists/SCD shortly after the alleged attack. See @MichaKobs discussion here
@2ndNewMoon @ClarkeMicah @bellingcat @LapCat @aaronjmate @bbclysedoucet @NikGowing @OborneTweets @PeterCronau @TulsiGabbard @SusanSarandon @Tim_Hayward_ @PhilipWatson_ @MichaKobs 2) the deleted tweet confirms that the cylinder was rotated through 180 degrees, so that a small dent in the cylinder lined up with a steel bar in the roof and tilting the cylinder so that the nozzle was pointing into a hole in the roof.

@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:-… @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'…

@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:…

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.
