The US accused Russia of trying to use the UN Security Council meeting “to weaken the credibility of the OPCW and its findings” on the alleged chemical attacks on the Syrian city of Douma in 2018, speaking at the UNSC meeting in New York City on Monday.

US acting deputy to the UN, Cherith Norman Chalet, blamed Russia for “brazen disinformation campaign waged in advance of the anticipated release of the OPCW investigation and identification teams’ first report.”

“We must defend the credibility and the findings of the OPCW and the UN from disinformation,” she added and emphasised that “the United States stands firmly behind the OPCW Fact Finding Missions (FFM) March 1st, 2019 report.”

Earlier, the Russian side stated that alleged chemical attacks on Douma were staged by the White Helmets and the chlorine displayed as evidence had been placed by militants for provocative purposes.

The Security Council meeting was called upon by Russian Permanent Representative Vasily Nebenzya to discuss the report prepared by Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) into the alleged chemical attack on Douma in 2018.

There is currently no credibility in OPCW’s Douma report. Thanks to outside interference presumably from US and other nations that participated in missile attacks on Syria. Presumably to justify these acts of aggressions. US acting deputy to the UN, Cherith Norman Chale must read https://wikileaks.org/opcw-douma/

I bet that even Cherith Norman Chalet doesn’t believes what she says, just like only total idiots believed the Houthis did the attacks on Aramco or that Iran didn’t shot down the Ukrainian airliner for 4 days… Even OPCW internal “cables” say the Douma report was staged.
This is the great point of recouping through OSINT nowadays : we don’t drink the Kool-Aid so easily…

@death 2, brain dead like Cherith Norman Chalet believe their own cràp.

And they repeat it even when OSINT Q1 speak against it. Because they and their masters know that they have the interpretational sovereignty via their control over Western MSM. And they are right – even after 100 years the Western public still believes in their WW I crapaganda against Imperial Germany. Greetings from Wilson’s, world’s first ministry of information. Goebbels was only a copy cat.

Of course the US would say this because it is the US and the rebels they support in Syria that would benefit from this staged attack. But anyone with any amount of brains can see there was no logic to Assad using CW. why? Because he had already taken most of the territory, he was winning the battle and why do a one off attack? Only stupid people would believe that Assad did this.

In fact, they simply go on with the narrative in order to not apologise, the same way it goes for the WH : don’t worry, they perfectly know that WH are roaches and how they sücked by backing these critters, but they consider saying “yup, we sucked at believing the WH crapaganda” as a sign of weakness, so the narrative will be maintained no matter what happens.

@Alicia Keez, but Western MSM do not tell their general public addicts to use any amount of brain and to ask cui bono first. Woodrow Wilson’s Propaganda Machine Changed International Journalism. The media of this world are still feeling the impact of an executive order signed in 1917 that created the ‘first ministry of information’. Cherith Norman Chalet has grown up brainwashed and thus brain dead. https://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/how-woodrow-wilsons-propaganda-machine-changed-american-journalism-180963082/

@death 2, yes but it only refers to the south English cooking that luckily makes them brain dead and has lead to the Brexit of the US sub from the EU shores.
