Syrian Doctor interviewed in Douma by Robert Fisk
April 17 2018 — Robert Fisk is the first western journalist to reach Douma, Syria. He spoke to residents and interviewed a doctor who treated the victims of an incident which occurred on April 7th 2018. The doctor told Fisk that these people did not suffered from a chemical attack.

UPDATE (April 17 2019) — My interview with Carla Ortiz convinced me that these stories were pure propaganda organized by the White Helmets and whoever support them.
Please, I encourage you to read this interview and decide for yourself who is telling the truth…
And by the way, did you notice that the people spreading the disinformation about the “Syrian chemical attacks” are the very same folks who tried very hard to sell us the “Skripals’ story”.
Eliot Higgins — and his Bellingcat website — certainly comes to mind! His “investigative” methods are asinine and his allegations utterly imbecilic.

Former DIA Colonel Pat Lang posted an interesting story recently. Allow me to point a key part of the text:
“Some of Lokhova’s comments on ‘twitter’ are extremely entertaining. An example, with which I have much sympathy:
‘AN APOLOGY: Yesterday, I compared @nytimes journalists, who smeared @GenFlynn and accused me of being a Russian spy, to cockroaches. In good conscience, I must apologise to the cockroaches for the distress caused to them for being compared to @nytimes #Russiagate hoaxers. Sorry!’
Meanwhile, another interesting recent ‘tweet’ comes from Eliot Higgins, of ‘Bellingcat’ fame. He is known to some sceptics as ‘the couch potato’ – perhaps he should be rechristened ‘king cockroach.’ It reads:
‘Looking forward to getting things rolling with the Open Information Partnership, with @bellingcat, @MDI_UK, @DFRLab, and @This_Is_Zinc https://www.openinformation…’
There is an interesting ‘backstory’ to this. The announcement of an FCO-supported ‘Open Information Partnership of European Non-Governmental Organisations, charities, academics, think-tanks and journalists’, supposedly to counter ‘disinformation’ from Russia, came in a written answer from the Minister of State, Sir Alan Duncan, on 3 April.
In turn this followed the latest in a series of releases of material either leaked or hacked from the organisations calling themselves ‘Institute for Statecraft’ and ‘Integrity Initiative’ by the group calling themselves ‘Anonymous’ on 25 March.
The centrepiece of this is a proposal submitted to the FCO in August last year by what seems to be essentially the same consortium whose existence as a government contractor has now been made public. The ‘Institute for Statecraft’ has vanished, and one consortium member, ‘Aktis Strategy’, has gone into liquidation. But other key members are the same.
A central underlying premise is that if anyone has any doubts as to whether the ‘White Helmets’ are a benevolent humanitarian organisation, or the Russians were responsible for the poisoning of the Skripals or the shooting down of MH17, the only possible explanation is that their minds have been poisoned by disinformation.
An interesting paragraph reads as follows:
‘An expanded research component could generate better understanding of the drivers (psychological, sociopolitical, cultural and environmental) of those who are susceptible to disinformation. This will allow us to map vulnerable audiences, and build scenario planning models to test the efficiency of different activities to build resilience of those populations over time.’
They have not yet got to the point of recommending psychiatric treatment for ‘dissidents’, but these are still early days. The ‘Sovietisation’ of Western life proceeds apace.”
I have long argued that the CIA lied about the Khan Shaykhoun attack. And just yesterday, we learned that the CIA also lied to the US president about the Skripals’ affair.
END of UPDATE
According to the doctor, the video is real. But the children suffered from hypoxia, not from a gas attack.
“I was with my family in the basement of my home three hundred metres from here on the night but all the doctors know what happened.
There was a lot of shelling [by government forces] and aircraft were always over Douma at night — but on this night, there was wind and huge dust clouds began to come into the basements and cellars where people lived.
People began to arrive here suffering from hypoxia, oxygen loss.
Then someone at the door, a ‘White Helmet’, shouted ‘Gas!’ and a panic began. People started throwing water over each other.
Yes, the video was filmed here, it is genuine, but what you see are people suffering from hypoxia – not gas poisoning.”
Robert Fisk’s account has just been corroborated by Pearson Sharp — conservative news network One America — who is also reporting from Douma, Syria.

OAN Investigation Finds No Evidence of Chemical Weapon Attack in Syria
One America’s Pearson Sharp visited the war-torn town of Douma outside the capital of Damascus, looking for evidence of a chemical attack.
However, residents there deny the claims of an attack, and say it was staged to help the rebels escape.
