by Tony Cartalucci: 5 Lies Invented to Spin UN Report on Syrian Chemical Weapons Attack!
As predicted days before the UN's Syrian chemical weapons report was made public, the West has begun spinning the findings to bolster their faltering narrative regarding alleged chemical weapon attacks on August 21, 2013 in eastern Damascus, Syria. The goal of course, is to continue demonizing the Syrian government while simultaneously sabotaging a recent Syrian-Russian deal to have Syria's chemical weapon stockpiles and disarmed by independent observers.

They are similar in configuration and function to those identified by the UN at sites investigated after the alleged August 21, 2013 Damascus, Syria chemical weapons attack, only smaller. A barrage of suspiciously worded headlines attempt to link in the mind of unobservant readers the UN's "confirmation" of chemical weapons use in Syria and Western claims that it was the Syrian government who used them. Additionally, the US, British, and French governments have quickly assembled a list of fabrications designed to spin the UN report to bolster their still-unsubstantiated accusations against the Syrian government. The BBC's article, "US and UK insist UN chemicals report 'blames Syria'," again states unequivocally, emphasis added: The UN report did not attribute blame for the attack, as that was not part of its remit. However, that did not stop UK Foreign Secretary William Hague who claimed: From the wealth of technical detail in the report, including on the scale of the attack, the consistency of sample test results from separate laboratories, witness statements, and information on the munitions used and their trajectories, it is abundantly clear that the Syrian regime is only party that could have been responsible. And US ambassador to the UN Samantha Power who stated: The technical details of the UN report make clear that only the regime could have carried out this large-scale chemical weapons attack. French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius is also quoted as saying: When you look at the findings carefully, the quantities of toxic gas used, the complexity of the mixes, the nature, and the trajectory of the carriers, it leaves absolutely no doubt as to the origin of the attack. The Washington Post went one step further, and perhaps foolishly, laid out a detailed explanation of each fabrication the West is using to spin the latest UN report. In an article titled, "The U.N. chemical weapons report is pretty damning for Assad," 5 points are made and explained as to why the UN report "points" to the Syrian government. 1. Chemical weapons were delivered with munitions not used by rebels: This claim includes referencing "Syria watcher" Eliot Higgins also known as "Brown Moses," a UK-based armchair observer of the Syrian crisis who has been documenting weapons used throughout the conflict on his blog. While Higgins explains these particularly larger diameter rockets, 140mm and 330mm have not been seen by him in the hands of terrorists operating within and along Syria's borders, older post of his show rockets similar in construction and operation, but smaller, most certainly in the hands of the militants.
