Minority Report on Douma attack exposes ‘compromised reporting & analysis’ by OPCW – MIT professor

The OPCW failed to include evidence on the Douma “chemical attack” that contradicts the West’s favored narrative in its final report, so the resulting document is inherently compromised, an MIT professor said.

The chemical weapons watchdog released its conclusions on last year’s high-profile incident in early March. The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) claimed that chlorine-filled gas cylinders were dropped from the sky on the Damascus suburb. It did not directly pin the blame on the Syrian government, however.

Last month, there was a leak of an internal technical assessment which had been produced by a member of the OPCW fact-finding mission that studied two locations where the cylinders were found.

The document stated that the evidence the inspectors found didn’t square with the idea that the cylinders fell from the sky, and that the logical explanation was that they had been planted there. This opinion was ignored in the watchdog’s final document, and this makes it “a product of compromised reporting of the inspection and analysis process by upper level OPCW management,” Theodore Postol, a leading expert in missile technology, told the Grayzone Project.

The scalding criticism came in response to the way the head of the OPCW addressed the embarrassing leak. Director General Fernando Arias said the opinion had no place in the final report because it “pointed at possible attribution” in the incident, which was contrary to the mandate given to the mission.

He said the data was instead studied by three external experts, who “all reached the same conclusions that can be found in the FFM final report.”

Postol disagreed and accused Arias of mischaracterizing what was said in the leaked paper. The document “provided unambiguous contradictory data… that explicitly showed that the attacks were instead staged,” but didn’t go as far as pinning it on anyone. The criticism stopped short of suggesting Douma and other alleged chemical weapons incidents were false flag events but the implication was clear.

The Douma incident sparked global outrage, partially thanks to footage of children being doused with water in a makeshift hospital, which was circulated by the media worldwide. The scene was later revealed to have been staged and not related to the alleged chemical attack.

Oxford Academics Turn On Gay BLT Propagandists For Pushing Unscientific Claims


lgbt rights protest
Gay, Lesbian and Trans rights protestor holds a placard making a typically idiotic statement - human rights apply to all humans, trans-rights are the infantile demands of self pitying losers.

'More than 30 Oxford academics have blasted Stonewall for pushing 'tendentious and antiscientific claims' in the trans awareness training it gives to universities according to a report in The Sunday Times (a more sensationalized version of the same story appears in The Daily Mail if you are blocked by The Times paywall).


The professors and lecturers have taken issue with Oxford University's compulsory training programme on Gay, Lesbian and Transgender issues, that includes dogmatic statements about permissible attitudes "towards Gay, Lesbian and especially Transgender rights, including such unmitigated wank as "gender is how people interpret and view themselves." The Oxford academics expressed their opposition to such unscientific nonsense beong forced on teaching staff, research fellows and students in a letter passed to The Sunday Times.


They call for universities to sever links with Stonewall and other LGBT charities until and unless those organisations dump their fascistic attempts to restrict freedom of though and commit to 'fully supporting academic freedom of thought'.


Academics are also being bullied by student groups to withdraw invitations to "transphobic speakers," i.e. anyone who do not accept "that trans people are the gender they say they are" or maintain that gender is determined by our biological sex rather that "feelings".


They fear the new rules university managers have accepted after being bullied by Gay BLT lobying could see staff lose their jobs, and that they contravene the right of free speech.


Modern history professor Selina Todd is quoted by the Sunday Times as saying: "[This] is really pushing an agenda which is dogmatic and completely overruling freedom of speech... I am very scared that academics will start to lose their jobs.


"I feel uncomfortable. I've told my employer that I feel vulnerable and I've had students say they feel intimidated by what's going on at this campus."


Oxford and Cambridge last year spent £55,000 between them on LGBT training so staff are better equipped to help students who may be struggling. According to a NUS LGBTQ+ report from 2014, just 20 per cent of trans students feel completely safe on campus, which begs questions just how many of these mental cases are there at Oxford. One in three trans students said they had experienced bullying or harassment - while 51 per cent have seriously considered dropping out of their course. The Daily Stirrer does not see that as any loss to either the university or society in general were that to happen.


And what are these trans students studying for anyway, degrees in self pity?
