Debunking the “U.S. Government Assessment of the Syrian Government’s Use of Chemical Weapons on August 21, 2013” By Eric Draitser

Kerry syria

The document entitled “U.S. Government Assessment of the Syrian Government’s Use of Chemical Weapons on August 21, 2013”, released in tandem with public statements made by Secretary of State John Kerry, is merely summary of a manufactured narrative designed to lead the US into yet another criminal and disastrous war in the Middle East.  Having been released prior to even preliminary reports from UN chemical weapons investigators on the ground in Syria, the document is as much a work of fiction as it is fact.

29 August 2013 — Moon of Alabama

[I was in the middle of putting together a piece on the UK’s obscene lust for war when MofA put this up. Thanks MofA. WB]

23 August 2013 — Voltaire Network

According to the Free Syrian Army, the Syrian authorities have bombarded the ghoutta, a suburb of Damascus, with sarin gas, Wednesday, August 21, 2013, resulting in a total of 1700 deaths.

Movie Review: “We Steal Secrets”: A Masterclass in Propaganda. The Assassination of Julian Assange By Jonathan Cook

30 July 2013 — Jonathan Cook

I have just watched We Steal Secrets, Alex Gibney’s documentary about Wikileaks and Julian Assange. One useful thing I learnt is the difference between a hatchet job and character assassination. Gibney is too clever for a hatchet job, and his propaganda is all the more effective for it.
