The formerly respected global authority on whether or not A chemical weapons attack has occurred, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, or OPCW, has now so continuously ignored its own hired expert investigators, so that in an April 28th news report, at “The Gray Zone” investigative news site, anonymous “OPCW Insiders” have issued A public statement (https://TheGrayZone.com/2020/04/28/OPCW–insiders–ltamenah–chemical–weapons-report/) saying that:
A number of impartial and principled professionals no longer wish to be associated with the politically motivated reports being issued by the OPCW FFM [Fact Finding Mission] and now the IIT [Investigation and Identification Team]. Many consider this work and these reports to be procedurally and scientifically flawed. Some of us believe they should not be seen as representing the work of OPCW inspectors at all.
The recent publication of the IIT report into alleged chemical attacks at Ltamenah [in Syria – A country whose non sectarian Government the US regime has been trying since 2009, http://archive.is/uAVEW, to overthrow and replace by A fundamentalist Sunni government that would be controlled by the Sauds, http://archive.is/Rl4VW] on March 24, 25 and 30 2017, has highlighted again the misuse of the OPCW by influential state parties to further their political and foreign affairs objectives.
The news reports that are listed below provide the essential background to this, indicating that the “influential state parties” which are being referred to are the US and its allied regimes (such as UK).
If the quoted statement is, in fact, A leak by “OPCW Insiders,” as “The Gray Zone” alleges, then it’s yet another nail in the coffin of the OPCW’s international credibility. Coming after A lengthy string of such OPCW scandals as are documented in the below listed articles, all international funding organizations will then cancel their commitments to OPCW, except for organizations that represent the US regime; and, then, the only international organizations that will continue to publicize the ‘findings’ from the OPCW will be organizations that themselves are agencies of the US regime.
In that case, of course, no national delegations to the United Nations, except ones that represent regimes which themselves likewise front for (are vassals of) the US regime, will continue to cite OPCW ‘findings’, in any other way than to deny the credibility of OPCW reports.
The background on all of this, including an explanation of what the main objectives of the US regime are in Syria – what the purposes of this OPCW propaganda against Syria’s Government are – is provided here: http://archive.is/R5gSe).
And, now, following, are the news reports that describe the events building up to the “OPCW Insiders” statement, that “Some of us believe they should not be seen as representing the work of OPCW inspectors at all” (these events will be listed starting with the latest, and working backwards in time, to the earliest):
