End Torture, Shut Down the CIA!
Remember back in April, 2007, when then-CIA director George Tenet appeared on 60 Minutes, angrily telling the program host, “we don’t torture people”? Remember a few months later, in October, President George W. Bush saying, “this government does not torture people”? We knew then it was not true because we had already seen the photos of Iraqis tortured at Abu Ghraib prison four years earlier.

East Ghouta: False Flag Chemical Attack


Mother Agnes Chemical Attack Footage

The International Institute for Peace, Justice and Human Rights (ISTEAMS) has just published a comprehensive report on the chemical attack in the Damascus suburb of East Ghouta. The document is called The Chemical Attacks on East Ghouta to Justify Military Right to Protect Intervention in Syria. With video clips and the evidence provided by witnesses to support the conclusions, the report has been submitted to the United Nations Human Rights Council and spread among foreign diplomats. 

The author is ISTEAMS President and International Coordinator Mother Agnes Mariam of the Cross (el-Salib), the Mother Superior of the Monastery of St. James the Mutilated (Syria). A fearless faithful, she has been collecting the evidence related to bloody events in the conflict zone since the very start of Syrian rebellion: the militants running rampant, the staged fakes, and instances of one-sided highlighting of the events in Syria by the Western media...

The study of 35 videos posted on the Internet has made surface multiple disparities and brought into light the methods used to manipulate public opinion. The clips showing hundreds of dead and suffocating victims, including scores of children suffering as a result of chemical weapons attack by government troops, had been prepared previously before the incident took place in order to justify a foreign intervention against Syria. The report offers the following fundamental conclusions: 

Actually there were no local residents at the time of attack in the area of East Ghouta, the place chosen for staging the provocation. The majority of population had left East Ghouta before the combat actions started. The ones left were only a few elders and some supporters of the “rebels” -- predominantly adolescents and grown-ups. The victims’ dead bodies mainly belong to the people from various places situated far away from East Ghouta. Some of them have been identified by relatives. 

Many videos have a fictional character or, to put it plainly, are obvious fakes with the dead bodies of people who were killed, kidnapped, and missing as a result of the “rebel” attack on 11 Alawite villages in Latakia on August 3, 2013 (back then over 150 women and children were kidnapped to be exchanged for militants kept behind bars in Syrian jails, the authors of the report adduce the detailed list of already identified victims and the missing persons, they point out that the list contains 400 names, so, at present, it is far from being full). Here are the examples of staged incidents: 

a) Scripted events of deaths and aid provided to victims. Two video clips presented by Jobar Revolutionary Coordination Committee and Revolutionary Committee of Hamouria, show contradicting pictures of the same adolescent dying in different footages. In some places the picture shows the very same child receiving emergency aid over and over again and each time it’s done in a different way. The authors of the report and experts say it looks very much like a scripted footage when the very same picture is shot many times. 

b) Demonstration of victims’ bodies and their burial. Having announced the death toll was 1465 (this lie has been repeated many times by US top officials), the “rebels” could produce the evidence of only 8 burials. The bodies mainly belong to children, few victims are adults, and there are almost no women among the dead while the East Ghouta joint medical staff reported that many corpses were female. 

c) Demonstration of extremely strange instances when persons were transported in space, the same dead bodies shown over and over again in different footages. For instance, the same woman, who was allegedly looking for her children, somehow managed to be present in five video clips shot at different places at the same time, she also found two of the children, and, somehow, did it in two different places as well. Another clip showed the chemical attack victims in Jobar, the children shown in the video appear as victims again, but this time in the place called Kfar-Batna, the third video clip shows the very same children as victims in Ain Terma… 

There are other instances of outright lies and fakes that can easily be exposed. For instance, the falsifiers used photos and videos which were broadcast as photographic evidence of the death of the Ghouta residents early on in the immediate aftermath of the attacks and the propaganda push that followed it. The ISTEAMS report points out, however, that these photos and videos were not taken in Ghouta or even in Syria at all, but that they were actually photos taken in Cairo, Egypt, during the riots. The other example is a witness shown describing how his family smelled the poisonous gas sarin. This is a lie because sarin has no smell (the very same way the majority of poisonous substances – chemical agents used for war purposes -- produce no smell).

The 50-page report of the International Institute for Peace, Justice and Human Rights is another evidence of the irrefutable fact that, according to Russian Foreign Affairs Minister Sergey Lavrov, “We have plenty of reports on chemical weapons use, which indicate that the opposition regularly resorts to provocations in order to trigger strikes and intervention against Syria”, he said. “There’s a lot of data. It’s widely available on the internet. This data is presented in the report, which our experts put together in association with the use of chemical weapons in Aleppo in March this year. There’s also plenty of data on the incidents that occurred in August in Ghouta, near Damascus”.
