The revelations – studiously ignored by the mainstream media – shed a light on the tangled web weaved by the complicit media and the West’s shameless hypocrisy, involving the OPCW, Wikileaks and Julian Assange’s illegal detention.
A whistleblower from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) delivered to Wikileaks authentic documents to do with investigations into the Douma bombing in Syria in 2018.
These documents confirmed what many had been writing about for months, namely, that the OPCW’s investigations and conclusions were manufactured to reach a premeditated result that was unfavorable to the Syrian Arab Army and in line with the foreign-policy objectives of Washington, Tel Aviv, Riyadh, Paris, Ankara, Doha and London.
The US has previously used just this same formula, under the pretext of R2P (Responsibility to Protect), to justify the bombing of a country.
A chemical attack to be blamed on the Syrian army seemed like the most straightforward means to trigger R2P and achieve the desired foreign-policy objectives. However, what we now know from the documents published by Wikileaks is that the international organization supposed to ensure impartiality and objectivity falsified reports and procedures.
In the words of José Bustani, the first director-general of the OPCW and Brazil’s former ambassador to the United Kingdom and France:
“The convincing evidence of irregular behaviour in the OPCW investigation of the alleged Douma chemical attack confirms doubts and suspicions I already had.
I could make no sense of what I was reading in the international press. Even official reports of investigations seemed incoherent at best.
The picture is certainly clearer now, although very disturbing” “I have always expected the OPCW to be a true paradigm of multilateralism. My hope is that the concerns expressed publicly by the Panel, in its joint consensus statement, will catalyse a process by which the Organisation can be resurrected to become the independent and non-discriminatory body it used to be.”
The body that was supposed to guarantee impartiality connived to frame Damascus for a crime it did not commit, just so that the West had its excuse to conduct a bombing campaign against Syria.
In this perverse mechanism, any off-script testimony from Syrians on the ground, independent foreign journalists, or any other unapproved sources were summarily dismissed by the European and American press as biased and unreliable….
