Surprise! Russia Is Not Allowing Inspectors to Do Their Job

Monday, April 16, 2018 9:57
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

After demanding the United Nation’s send inspectors to the site of the chemical weapons attack in Douma, Syria, the Russians are saying the Organization for the Proliferation of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) cannot go in to inspect the site.

OPCW briefing explaining the Syrian government has not yet permitted their deployment into Douma due to “pending security issues”, which is curious since yesterday they said they “purified” Ghouta from all terrorists

In the statement released by the OPCW, they said,

“The Team has not yet deployed to Douma. The Syrian and the Russian officials who participated in the preparatory meetings in Damascus have informed the FFM Team that there were still pending security issues to be worked out before any deployment could take place. In the meantime the Team was offered by the Syrian authorities that they could interview 22 witnesses who could be brought to Damascus.”

Isn’t that nice of the Assad regime… Sure they’re preventing the international body from inspecting the site because of “security issues” even though Russia said Douma had been cleared, but at least they hand-picked 22 people for investigators to interview. How thoughtful.

BREAKING: Russian military says the Syrian government is now in full control of town near Damascus, site of suspected chemical attack.

Don’t buy this nonsense, this is Russia’s game: distract, deflect, and disrupt. All the while, acting as if they are abiding by their international agreements. This is precisely what Secretary of Defense James Mattis warned about during Friday’s press conference immediately after the strikes were conducted.

Closing off the site and deciding who is allowed to be interviewed by the OPCW should be an insult to the entire international community, because Russia is treating them like they’re idiots.

    It is doubtful that the public will ever learn the complete truth, whatever it may be.

    The US and allied attack on alleged Syria Chemical weapons plants was done some 2 hours before the OPCW inspections, so I dont buy this, at this time all the bombed sites will have to be inspected for unexploded US ordinance, building safety and any Chemical Weapons residue before the OPCW inspectors get to be allowed on site for their own safety, believe it or not. That strike put paid to legit 3rd party inspections since there is nothing intact to inspect. Also OPCW had already signed off that Syria had dismantled all production along with handing over its stockpiles for destruction.
