On 04 April 2017, the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhoun in Syria was devastated by a chemical attack. Contrary to popular opinion, the OPCW has not assigned blame for the incident. Their investigation is inconclusive. “The OPCW cannot and will not release information about an on-going investigation.”
21 December 2019 Note from Naomi: Please stop saying that new emails leaked by Wikileaks show that the OPCW lied to us about this attack. As I’ve been pointing out for years, the OPCW never assigned blame. They have always stated on their own website that their investigation is inconclusive. It’s the pundits and politicians who’ve been lying to us.
While America blamed Assad, Putin insisted the attack was a false flag staged by the United States. He also accused the United States of staging the April 21st attack against the Afghan National Army’s 209 Corps Military Headquarters in Mazar-e-Sharif (precursor to the US MOAB attack). But if anyone is staging false flags, the evidence points to Russia.
Containers (pictured above and here…) found at Al Shayrat Airfield the day after our military strike on April 6th look strikingly similar to storage containers pictured below and in this 2014 Russian article… captioned, “Public Relations Group of the Federal Office for the Safe Storage and Destruction of Chemical Weapons”.
Worth nothing: The article is all about how the US had refused to abide by its agreement to help finance the destruction of chemical weapons and nuclear waste. While the agreement itself is not named in the article, the CWC that enabled the removal and destruction of chemical weapons from Syria included an agreement of US funding for destruction of such weapons.
Is it possible that the containers in both photographs are from the same chemical weapons batch? A recently published United Nations Report, confirms that the chemical weapon used in Khan Sheikhoun consisted of sarin and a hexamine additive… the same deadly combination found in chemical weapons allegedly used by Assad in the Ghouta region outside Damascus in 2013.
Counter arguments to my position can be read here.
Furthermore, while assumed to be Syrian operated, drones and aircraft associated with the chemical strike were actually Russian-made, and the airbase the strike was launched from was actually built by and for Russian operations in 2015.
