Famed War Reporter Robert Fisk Reaches Syrian 'Chemical Attack' Site, Concludes "They Were Not Gassed"
[link to www.zerohedge.com (secure)]

Robert Fisk's bombshell first-hand account for the UK Independent runs contrary to nearly every claim circulating in major international press concerning what happened just over week ago on April 7th in an embattled suburb outside Damascus: not only has the veteran British journalist found no evidence of a mass chemical attack, but he's encountered multiple local eyewitnesses who experienced the chaos of that night, but who say the gas attack never happened.

Fisk is the first Western journalist to reach and report from the site of the alleged chemical weapons attack widely blamed on Assad's forces. Writing from Douma in eastern Ghouta, Fisk has interviewed a Syrian doctor who works at the hospital shown in one of the well-known videos which purports to depict victims of a chemical attack.

Importantly, the report, published late in the day Monday, is causing a stir among mainstream journalists who–minutes after the Saudi-sponsored jihadist group Jaish al-Islam (Army of Islam) accused the Syrian Army of gassing civilians–began uncritically promoting the "Assad gassed his own people" narrative as an already cemented and "proven" fact based on the mere word a notoriously brutal armed group who itself has admitted to using chemical weapons on the Syrian battlefield in prior years. Also notable is that no journalist or international observer was anywhere near Douma when the purported chemical attack took place.

Controversy ensued immediately after Fisk's report, especially as he is among the most recognizable names in the past four decades of Middle East war reporting, having twice won the British Press Awards' Journalist of the Year prize and as seven time winner of the British Press Awards' Foreign Correspondent of the Year (the NY Times has referred to him as "probably the most famous foreign correspondent in Britain" while The Guardian has called him "one of the most famous journalists in the world").

Bullshit is piled a mile high in today's world of journalism, so-called or otherwise. It's more leftwing than ever before. Sleazily, sloppily liberal.

If most of the MSM are way too complacent about some minor slice of conventional wisdom - such as al-Assad is a big, bad, brutal meanie! - immediately guess that truth and reality can be found in the other direction.

Most of the fools covering news events have all the honesty, sanity and ethics of Hillary - who many of them supported in 2016 (if not still today) - and all the logic, decency and integrity of Barack.

Not to hijack the thread, but this international news story was also released today.

Journalists that entered the area found no evidence of an attack.



It confirms the story.

If you want to understand everyone’s thoughts and, more importantly, their behaviors leading up to the #2016 election, there is only one factor you need to consider. They all expected #Hillary Clinton would be elected. Their every action was predicated on that one “sure thing.”

Nope. He clearly states in the article he was walking around without government minders and interviewed who he liked. Of course he would want to interview people known to have been on the scene.
