OPCW-Duma-Skandal und das Schweigen der Medien

Caitlin Johnstone mit einem Artikel vom 28. Dezember 2019 zum Skandal um die Fälschungen der OPCW im Syrienkrieg, speziell zum Fall Duma aus dem Jahre 2018, unter Beteiligung der von EU-Staaten und den USA offen finanzierten Propagandatruppe Weißhelme:

Media’s Deafening Silence On Latest WikiLeaks Drops Is Its Own Scandal„. 

Es wurde ja in den letzten Wochen bekannt, dass OPCW-Verantwortliche hier bewusst gefälscht haben und Spuren verschwinden ließen und auf deren anderen Seite etliche beteiligte Wissenschaftler protestiert haben und als Whistleblower diese Schweinereien aufdeckten. Die Propagandafront der selbsternannten Qualitätspresse schweigt auch hier, trotz aller neuen Enthüllungen, eisenhart.

Dass die angebliche Giftgasattacke in Duma/Ghuta 2018 ein Fake ist, war unabhängig davon aufgrund verschiedener Belege sowie angesichts der Erfahrungen aus der Vergangenheit eigentlich schon von Anfang an klar.

Hier ein paar Auszüge aus dem eingangs genannten Johnstone-Artikel:

„This new WikiLeaks drop includes an email from the OPCW Chief of Cabinet Sebastien Braha (who is reportedly so detested by organisation inspectors that they code named him “Voldemort”) throwing a fit over the Ian Henderson Engineering Assessment which found that the Douma incident was likely a staged event. Braha is seen ordering OPCW staff to “remove all traces, if any, of its delivery/storage/whatever” from the organisation’s secure registry. (…)

According to the leaked minutes from the toxicology meeting, the chief expert offered “the possibility of the event being a propaganda exercise” as one potential explanation for the Douma incident. The other OPCW experts agreed that the key “take-away message” from the meeting was “that the symptoms observed were inconsistent with exposure to chlorine and no other obvious candidate chemical causing the symptoms could be identified”. (…)

Make no mistake about it: this is insane. The fact that an extremely important news story of immense geopolitical consequence is not getting any mainstream news media coverage, at all, is absolutely stark raving insane.

Up until the OPCW leaks, WikiLeaks drops always made mainstream news headlines. Everyone remembers how the 2016 news cycle was largely dominated by leaked Democratic Party emails emerging from the outlet. Even the relatively minor ICE agents publication by WikiLeaks last year, containing information that was already public, garnered headlines from top US outlets like The Washington Post , Newsweek, and USA Today. Now, on this exponentially more important story, zero coverage.

The mass media’s stone-dead silence on the OPCW scandal is becoming its own scandal, of equal or perhaps even greater significance than the OPCW scandal itself. It opens up a whole litany of questions which have tremendous importance for every citizen of the western world; questions like, how are people supposed to participate in democracy if all the outlets they normally turn to to make informed voting decisions adamantly refuse to tell them about the existence of massive news stories like the OPCW scandal? How are people meant to address such conspiracies of silence when there is no mechanism in place to hold the entire mass media to account for its complicity in it? And by what mechanism are all these outlets unifying in that conspiracy of silence?“
