Trump, May, Macron Silent On OPCW Syria Scandal.

“The essence of lying is in deception, not in words; a lie may be told in silence, by equivocation, by the accent of a syllable, by a glance of the eye attaching a peculiar significance to a sentence; but all of these kinds of lies are worse and baser by many degrees than a lie plainly worded.”

– JOHN RUSKIN (1819-1900) British writer

 

While Trump, May and Macron have yet to even respond to the new, growing scandal at The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, the United States Department of State is once again warning the government of Syria against using chemical weapons.

 scandal of historic and global proportions has surfaced after an omitted engineering report focused on an alleged April 2018 chemical weapons incident in Douma, Syria, – by experts associated with The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) – has become leaked to the public.

Strangely, United States President Donald Trump, outgoing United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May, and President Emmanuel Macron of France are all silent on the rapidly growing scandal, especially mysterious because the omitted report clearly obliterates the basis for their controversial, combined April 2018 bombing of Syria.

The leaked OPCW engineering report strongly suggests the alleged April 2018 chemical attacks in Douma, Syria were staged.

In addition to the concerning and inexplicable silence of world leaders Trump, May and Macron and their governments to what is obviously a tremendous scandal involving the OPCW, the (non)reporting of the scandal from major Western corporate media organizations is equally silent and/or absent.

“Cover-up” might be the applicable term for the combined U.S./U.K./France government and media silence on this matter, seeing that acknowledgement of the now-revealed facts regarding the Syria bombing opens the flood gates wide open for discussions on corrupt manipulation of OPCW operations, and the committing of war crimes by leaders Trump, May and Macron.

Journalist Aaron Mate of the independent media organization The Grayzone talked to weapons expert and emeritus M.I.T. Professor Theodore Postol about the leaked report, as well as the extremely serious ramifications of the scandal with respect to international law prohibiting chemical weapons.

Emeritus M.I.T. Professor Theodore Postol is considered one of the world’s leading weapons experts.

Attention will now most likely turn to the arm of the organization responsible for managing the scandal, – the OPCW’s Office of Internal Oversight – described in the following from the OPCW website:

https://www.opcw.org/about-us/technical-secretariat/divisions/office-internal-oversight

The Office of Internal Oversight (OIO) assists the Director-General in the management of the OPCW’s resources through Audits, Evaluations, Quality audits, Inspections, Investigations and Monitoring.

OIO’s mission is to enhance and protect organisational value and improve OPCW’s operations by providing risk-based and objective assurance, advice, and insight. OIO helps OPCW achieve its objectives by applying a systematic approach to evaluating and enhancing the adequacy and effectiveness of risk management, internal control and governance processes, so as to add value by improving the economy, efficiency and effectiveness of operations.

The Office provides State Parties and the Director-General with reasonable assurance that financial, operational, confidentiality and security controls are adequate and complied with as well as that the management of resources and programmes is efficient and effective. In its work related to audits (both internal audits and confidentiality audits), the Office follows the International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing (issued by the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA), United States of America).

The evaluation function of the OPCW is part of the internal oversight mechanism of the Organisation and is managed by the Office of Internal Oversight (OIO). Our mission is to promote accountability through independent, credible and useful evaluations of the OPCW programmes and activities. The Office follows the Evaluation Standards prescribed by the United Nations Evaluations Group (UNEG).

The OIO also reviews the Quality Assurance policy and strategy in order to maintain a comprehensive programme aimed at meeting the requirements of the following international standards, which are subject to the assessment of the RvA: ISO/IEC 17025:2005 (General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories); and ISO/IEC 17043:2010 (Conformity assessment—General requirements for proficiency testing).

As Oversight of QMS in the accredited parts of the Technical Secretariat has been entrusted to the Office of Internal Oversight, OIO is responsible for establishing and maintaining the accreditation of the quality assurance regime for the OIO itself, the OPCW Laboratory and on-site analytical procedures. Although the focus is on the OPCW Laboratory, OIO is responsible for managing two accredited processes: certification of OPCW Central Analytical Database and On-Site Databases and certification of preparation and testing of GC-MS inspection equipment

In addition, OIO carries out oversight audits covering quality assurance, conducted in accordance with current ISO auditing standards, and assess “the analytical network, including the OPCW quality assurance/quality control programme for on-site analysis, the OPCW Laboratory, together with the designated and other laboratories performances”.

In addition, by placing the responsibilities of the Quality Manager (currently SEQAO) in the Oversight Function, the OIO is the process owner for the set of processes related to the daily management of QMS.

It is worth noting that the April 2018 alleged chemical incident in Douma, Syria occurred shortly after the controversial March 2018 so-called Skripal-Novichok incident in Salisbury, United Kingdom. Besides an extremely brief scripted “interview” by Reuters of Yulia Skripal, featuring nothing by way of a detailed question-and-answer, in the (14) months since the incident millions are asking why virtually nobody has seen nor heard from Yulia and her father Sergei Skripal.

The events in Douma and Salisbury suggest a coordinated dual-aspect covert false flag operation intended to deceptively link Syria and Russia, namely Bashar Assad and Vladimir Putin, in the public’s mind as “chemical weapons criminals”. The motivation for such a false flag operation, if that is indeed the truth of the matter, would be to ease the prospects for public acceptance of a military response from the U.S., U.K. and France leading to the overthrow of the Syrian government.

It is also worth noting and remembering that there was a certain sense of impatience on the part of Trump, May and Macron to give the orders for the April 2018 bombing strikes, ignoring the voices urgently calling for restraint from many quarters of the Earth, and particularly as many serious questions about the Douma incident were near immediately after the incident being raised worldwide.

The separate but arguably related weeks-apart incidents share a major subsequent similarity: the strange, puzzling non-response from Trump, May and Macron on the scandal involving the OPCW, and the effective father-daughter total silence of Yulia and Sergei Skripal.

Will the world’s people ever hear from Yulia and Sergei Skripal – ever again? Will the world’s people ever hear from Donald Trump, Theresa May and Emmanuel Macron on the OPCW scandal – ever … for the first time?

ZERO 2019.

“Man’s mind cannot grasp the causes of events in their completeness, but the desire to find the causes is implanted in man’s soul.”

– LEO TOLSTOY (1828-1910) Russian writer

early all of the men and women whose eyes pass this way are already painfully familiar with the Big Lie which goes by the name: “9/11 Commission Report”. For those who pass this way unfamiliar or new to the official lies, which have continued to this day … totaling more than 17 years of unprecedented-in-history cover-up, – watching the film “ZERO: An Investigation Into 9/11” is all that is required for “cutting to the chase” and understanding the immensity of the crimes which occurred on September 11, 2001.

… And why the perpetrators must become identified – and stopped.

While the film was released in 2008 its relevance is more intense than ever today in May-June 2019, particularly as rumors of wars remain a significant topic of news reports worldwide. Tense international relations relating to Iran, Venezuela, Yemen, Syria and elsewhere on Earth reinforces the urgency of efforts to solve the crimes committed near 18 years ago on a sunny autumn day in the cities of New York and Washington, D.C. in the United States of America, the specific scenes of the crimes namely the World Trade Center complex and Pentagon.

Some theorize that the only chance for ending the catastrophic, fictitious, continuing “war on (of) terror” begun on 9/11 – based on the Big Lie and cover-up – is exposing the brutal truth. The theory is 100% accurate and irrefutable.

At present the best, perhaps last chance for revealing the truth resides with the courageous men and women associated with the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry …  The enormity of their historic task cannot be overstated.

Please share the historic, powerhouse, current-relevance, important film “ZERO: An Investigation Into 9/11” with everyone you know … plus everyone you don’t know.

Peace.

Description:

IMDB Rating 7.9

“ZERO (2008): An Investigation Into 9/11” has one central thesis – that the official version of the events surrounding the attacks on 9/11 cannot be true.

This feature documentary explores the latest scientific evidence and reveals dramatic new witness testimony, which directly conflicts with the US Government’s account.

Featuring presentations from intellectual heavy weights; Gore Vidal, and Nobel Prize winner Dario Fo, the film challenges assumptions surrounding the attacks. In the words of the Italian daily newspaper, Il Corriere de da Sera, “What results is a sequence of contradictions, gaps, and omissions of stunning gravity.” The importance of this film can not be overstated, if its thesis is correct, the justification for declaring the war on terror is built on a series of outrageous lies.
