Investigative Report By Craig Andresen and Diane Sori / Right Side Patriots
It is a well-known fact that when one rushes to judgment one tends to be wrong. And it is also a well-known fact that gut instincts are usually right especially when they nag at you and will not let go.
Such is the case with the recent chemical gas attack ‘supposedly’ being committed by Syrian President Bashir al-Assad against his own people in the rebel-held northern Idlib province city of Khan Sheikhun…a city actually bordering on Hama province. And how quickly he was blamed, how quickly the call to judgment was made for after all no one can dispute the fact that al-Assad is a ‘bad guy’ who has in the past done bad things, and so it must be him doing this even ‘badder thing’ now. And when this most grievous of actions reached the ear of the public the collective outcry against al-Assad was heard loud and clear even before any definitive facts and truths surrounding the tragedy could emerge.
In fact, Federica Mogherini, the High Representative of the ‘European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy,’ condemned Bashir al-Assad and his government forces before the gas had settled or even before the gas used could be positively identified as what was claimed to be sarin gas. Saying that the “Assad regime bears responsibility for ‘awful’ Syria ‘chemical’ attack,” Mogherini’s sentiments were echoed post haste by world leaders who simply took her word for it. Europe’s leaders were quick to chime in, and even Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned the attack against civilians already scared by over six-years of non-stop war. And when photos of babies and young children lying dead in the streets started to hit the internet, President Donald Trumhimself did an abrupt about-face regarding his policy of not getting involved in Syria…of not going for regime change…which led to last Thursday night’s targeted Tomahawk attack on the airbase believed to be the base from which the gas was loaded unto planes and dropped on an unsuspecting civilian populace.
And on the surface this surely seemed to be the case, and no one can blame President Trump for his actions which were solely based upon hastily gathered ‘facts’ presented to him less than 48 hours after the attack occurred…and of course the photos of dead babies and young children played strongly upon the heart of this loving father and grandfather as it did upon the hearts of the American people as well. And we ‘Right Side Patriots’ cried too seeing those pictures, yet between our tears was a nagging feeling that what we were seeing…or should we say ‘led to believe’ we were seeing…just did not seem quite right for the rush to both judgment and revenge led us to believe we were being manipulated into seeing something that did not add up to the important word ‘truth.’
And so began our search for the truth…an around the clock search that began within hours of the attack occurring until just now, almost four days later, when we put to paper both our findings and what we believe did actually happen in a rebel-held city in the north of Syria, and simply put, while this incident in no way was a ‘false flag’ it was and remains the chess board upon which the pieces of the puzzle being moved around have chosen a king of the wrong color.
“Does anyone believe that on the eve of peace talks, just after the White House said the Syrian people should choose their own leaders, that Assad would launch a gas attack to turn the whole world against him? We don’t either. We’re back to the same lies that got us into Iraq.” – Kentucky Senator Rand Paul
And the nagging gut feeling grew even stronger for we knew that the day after the attack was to be the first day of talks between representatives of more than 50 nations who were to meet in Brussels for a conference to discuss the financial and humanitarian needs of Syria, a country that the U.N. estimated 13.5 million people were in need of humanitarian assistance, including the 4.7 million people who lived in besieged or barely accessible areas…areas like the city of Khan Sheikhun.
A meeting to help the Syrian people…a meeting to assist in helping to end the conflict between Bashir al-Assad’s government forces and those who call themselves rebels…a meeting that would start with Bashir al-Assad’s government forces showing that they were winning the war on the ground. And while some of the rebels truly are rebels, it must also be known that most who call themselves rebels are but tentacles of ISIS, al-Qaeda, al-Nusra (now technically renamed Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, meaning the ‘Front for the Conquest of Syria/the Levant’), and other terrorist groups…groups waiting for al-Assad to fall so they could move in and turn Syria into a sharia compliant state of the caliphate.
And to that affect we now find out that the rebel group Ahrar al-Sham…the ‘Islamic Movement of the Free People of the Levant’…issued a statement that they “welcomed U.S. intervention through surgical strikes that would deter regime capabilities to kill civilians.” Sounds good on the surface doesn’t it what with the U.S. considering Ahrar al-Sham as one of the most “effective” rebel groups in Syria according to a report from Stanford University. However, what is not being reported is that this very group is integrated with the Islamic Front and al-Nusra who according to their very own words is “dedicated to building an islamic state whose only sovereign, reference, ruler, direction, and individual, societal and nationwide unifier is Allah Almighty’s Sharia (law).”
And when a group like this is but one of many terrorist groups conveniently calling themselves rebels…rebels wanting the predominately secular government of Bashir al-Assad gone…it becomes a dangerous reality that if al-Assad and his government do fall then a power vacuum will likely see al-Qaeda type terrorists or worse…as in the likes of ISIS…moving in to fill the void.
But that is for another article as what must be focused on at this time is the fact that a rush to judgment was made as to which side committed this vile act for as the dust settles some of us are starting to see and zero in on certain facts that others simply do not want to see or actually fear seeing. And let’s start by first noting that a day prior to the attack a tweet was sent out by Feram Karam, a reporter in Syria with Orient News, telling of Orient TV’s announcement that “Tomorrow we are launching a media campaign to cover the airstrikes on Hama country side [remember Khan Sheikehun is right on Huma’s border] including the usage of chemical warfare against civilians,” thus showing that the rebels were going to ‘stage’ an attack within the area…an attack that was now known about and media prepared for with key players in place before it happened.
Now briefly touching upon the reality that contrary to what many claim as sarin gas being the toxic agent used in the attack on Khan Shiekhun, the fact is it simply was not. And why is the gas used so important as obviously these people…at least some of them…were killed by some form of gas…because by proving this was not a sarin gas attack other key pieces of the puzzle will start to fall in place…key pieces that will show that not only were we here in America duped but that the world has been duped as well, and by those who up until now had little to lose.
And so documented facts are key as to the why this attack was not one of sarin gas…a gas that is “not very persistent” in the environment, meaning it dissipates fairly quickly yet certain toxic aspects of it remain. First, sarin gas is colorless and odorless and yet ‘survivors’ claim they saw a yellowish-green gas floating within the air at the time of the attack. Second, within seconds a minute or two of exposure to sarin gas the effects of the gas begins to target the muscle and nervous system as sarin is a nerve agent that causes an almost immediate release of the bowels and bladder, coupled with profuse vomiting. Now look at the pictures from the ‘supposed’ scene of the attack…no such bodily fluids can be seen in any of the pictures.
Also, when sarin gas is used within a concentrated area…as was the city blocks involved in this ‘drop’…it would likely kill and/or sicken thousands of people not the under one hundred involved. And third, look now at photos of those ‘helping’ the victims and those carrying the dead and wounded…from ‘supposed’ civilians to the very recognizable aid group known as the White Helmets…and much more on them in a bit…and see how they are treating bodies with little concern for their exposed skin for remember, sarin poisoning is spread not only by air-borne contact to the gas but even by just touching, handling, or carrying a victim.
Now let’s move on to some other oddities about this entire scenario. Supposedly taking place in a residential area…hence the baby and children victims…we have discovered through zeroing in on Google Maps that the areas in question were not residential but were warehouse districts scattered within a few areas of the city. This attack, we were told, took place in the middle of the night while babies were asleep in their cribs, yet the pictures of dead children and babies we see only show them lying alone in the streets in broad daylight. And where were their parents…they were not lying dead or sick next to their children…they were not cradling their children in their arms to comfort them… they were nowhere to be seen. And how did children and babies end up in the middle of the these (warehouse) street alone…something to think about isn’t it for what kind of parent would leave their child to die or suffer in the street alone…none that we know of and we’re sure none that you know of either.
Now something else Google Maps showed as does all the pictures we are seeing…if this attack occurred within a heavily populated residential area as claimed…a bombed-out area yet an area that ‘supposedly’ was teeming with family life…hence the babies and children…why are there no signs of life even amongst the rubble. There are no remnants of children’s toys, furniture, housewares, clothing, nothing that would indicate that this area was home to anyone. Also, if this was a residential area where are the animals, the dogs, the cats, the birds…where are they whether they be alive or dead from exposure to the gas…they or their bodies are nowhere to be found and why…because none of those ‘supposedly’ killed in this attack came from the city of Khan Shiekhun and especially not from its residential areas.
And why…as can be seen by this unreleased media photo below of the impact site of the ‘supposed’ sarin gas weapon, the weapon was not dropped in a residential area… neither lived in now nor before…but in a warehouse district as we have alluded to throughout this article
Also not released by the media…at least not here in our country…was the fact that one week before the ‘supposed’ attack on Khan Shiekhun, about 250 people, including babies and children, from the neighboring cities of Majdal (33 miles away) and Khattab (21 miles away) were kidnapped by al-Qaeda terrorists. Locals from the area are claiming that many of those dead from the gas attack were those kidnapped from Majdal and Khattab…staged to make it appear that al-Assad had used sarin gas to kill his own people. And with the absence of the ‘stuff’ of life as we explained above that seems a highly likely scenario.
And to that affect, remember what we said about those who were aiding the victims and carrying the dead… that is a key factor for the White Helmets themselves are the key to this all…the very White Helmets who most believe to be a humanitarian organization but who unbeknownst to almost all are actually an affiliate of al-Nusra and sympathizers of al-Qaeda.
The White Helmets…a key player in the whole Syrian mess. Also known as the Syrian Civil Defense, a supposedly humanitarian organization that helps all Syrians…rebels, and government forces alike…for lack of a better term think of them as the Syrian version of something akin to our Red Cross.
The White Helmets have their own broadcast channel, their own website, and were the subject of a propaganda styled film by George Clooney for Netflix last year, as well as having been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, but who are they really and are they what they claim to be. Netflix…the very company who boasts a major shareholder as being the Capital Research Global Investors, and a company in which George Soros invested nearly $32.8 million dollars when he bought 317,534 shares in 2015, saw him dissolve those shares in 2016. One has to wonder why.
This Syrian Civil Defense organization referred to as the White Helmets) was founded not by a Syrian, but by James Le Mesurier, a graduate from Britain’s elite Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst, and is said to be an ‘ex’ British military intelligence officer involved in a number of other NATO ‘humanitarian intervention’ theaters of war, including Bosnia, Kosovo, and Iraq, as well as postings in Lebanon and what is referred to as Palestine. He also boasts a series of high-profile posts at the UN, EU, and UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office. Not to mention his connections back to the infamous Blackwater (Academi)’…the American private military company founded in 1997 by former Navy SEAL officer Erik Prince…the company who received widespread notoriety in 2007, when a group of its employees killed 17 Iraqi civilians and injured 20 in Nisour Square, Baghdad for which four guards were convicted in a U.S. court.
Interesting isn’t it, that a non-Syrian, and a fellow like this Le Mersurier, would be the founder of a Syrian organization, and more interesting still is the fact that a couple of the White Helmets primary sources of funding come from NATO and from our very own CIA. Since when does the CIA pour $23 million of our American taxpayer dollars into what is supposedly a foreign ‘humanitarian’ organization? When one thinks of adding the word ‘funding’ to the CIA, one thinks covert ops…not humanitarian organizations on foreign soil.
And here is a little something else to think about…the White Helmets are actually not the only civil defense organization in Syria. There is also the International Civil Defense Organization’s (ICDO) certified Syrian Civil Defense…the real Syrian Civil Defense…formed in 1953 as a civil fire and rescue organization that really does operate throughout Syria, and if you need them in a true emergency situation such as a bombing, you can reach them inside Syria by dialing 311.
To be clear, the White Helmets have no phone number so there is virtually no way to reach them in the case of an emergency, and yet there they seem to be every time a ‘rebel’ enclave gets hit, digging children from bombed out buildings, and nearly always with both still photographers and video cameras rolling.
The real Syrian Civil Defense as a member of the ICDO, is part of a partnership which includes the U.N. Department of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), Secretary of the International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UNISDR), International Search and Rescue Advisory Group (INSARAG), World Health Organization (WHO), United Nations of Geneva (UNOG), Red Cross, and the Red Crescent.
The White Helmets are not ICDO partners and have no affiliation whatsoever with any of the legitimate organizations named, and while their helmets may be white, that waves a lot of red flags. What it appears to be is that the White Helmets are not at all what they claim to be, as in a civil defense organization, rather, they are a PR organization organized by those supporting ‘rebels’ tied to various terrorist organizations which operate inside Syria.
In fact, nearly all the photos and videos we have seen, and those supplied to our various intel organizations regarding attacks such as the one last week, come from the White Helmets. The photos of the dead children, the videos of ‘rescue’ attempts that so quickly make it to worldwide distribution via the internet, from places in Syria that have been bombed nearly to oblivion, come from the White Helmets.
In fact, while the real Syrian Civil Defense operates throughout Syria, the White Helmets seem only to be found in ‘rebel’ held territory, embedded with various factions of loosely connected terrorist organizations.
According to Vanessa Beesley, a correspondent for 21st Century Wire, who has traveled to Syria as a reporter, “In fact during my recent trip to Syria, I was once again struck by the response from the majority of Syrians when asked if they knew who the White Helmets were. The majority had never heard of them, others who follow western media noted that they are a “NATO construct being used to infiltrate Syria as a major player in the terrorist support network.””
According to the official White Helmet website, they claim they are not “tied to any political group in Syria, or anywhere else,” and they also state that they are, “fiercely independent” and “have accepted no money from governments, corporations or anyone directly involved in the Syrian conflict.”
Those are lies, plain and simple, as it seems is their claim to be a Syrian Civil Defense organization replete with first responders and doctors whose goal is to save lives.
Saving lives…really? Watch this video ‘supposedly’ of a White Helmet doctor ‘treating’ an injured baby who was ‘supposedly’ suffering from exposure to a toxic agent said to have been part of a recent attack perpetrated by the Syrian government. It is not an easy video to watch, but notice how the ‘doctor’ (if he really was even a doctor) jabs a needle into the baby’s chest. We are led to believe he is injecting adrenaline into the baby’s heart in a life-saving procedure. This ‘doctor’ never pushes the plunger…he simply and repeatedly jabs the dying infant through the heart with the needle.
Also in the video Arabic can be heard, and translators have reported that the words being spoken are not what one would expect to hear in such an emergency room setting…they are, according to Swedish Doctors for Human Rights, stage directions being given regarding the placement of the children’s body for the camera.
One of the biggest red flags with regard to the White Helmets is who they always seem to be assembled with whenever a crisis, real or fake, presents itself. Al-Qaeda, al-Nusra…an arm of al- Qaeda, Nour al-Din al-Zenki…a one-time more moderate group that has in the past year joined with Jabhat Fateh al-Sham (Front for the Conquest of Syria/the Levant)…the name we previously stated that changed from al-Nusra Front… and which is directly linked to ISIS. The list goes on and on, but the point is that none of the groups that the White Helmets associate with are in anyway moderate. They are in fact various factions of more prominent terrorist organizations.
Then there is Nour al-Din al-Zenki, yet another terrorist related Syrian-based organization that split from the Free Syrian Army about a year or so ago, and yet another group with whom the White Helmets associates.
There are a few key factors in these terrorist related associations regarding the White Helmets…first, the White Helmets can virtually only be found with the terrorist related organizations like al-Qaeda, as though they are embedded with them and second, the White Helmets, who claim to represent and assist all Syrians in emergency situations related to the war, are virtually never seen with the more moderate Free Syrian Army or anywhere near sites bombed or attacked by those opposed to Bashar al-Assad and his government forces.
And third, it seems every time cease-fire negotiations are ready to take place, usually within 24 hours of those talks, some enclave occupied by the forces of terrorist organizations gets hit, people are killed, and right there in the thick of it all are the White Helmets, their cameras, video gear, and their ‘doctors,’ to treat the victims…but have you ever noticed amid the inevitable flurry of released photos and videos that are recorded within moments of the attack, while ‘victims’ are literally dying in the streets…there does not seem to be a single shot or video of the attack itself.
If the White Helmets can be on the scene within mere moments with their cameras rolling and shutters clicking why are there not any images, moving or otherwise, of the bombing itself…or for that matter any photos or videos of actual down-and-dirty rescues they claim to have made. Holding a child in one’s arms does not an actual rescue make.
So far, everything we have found leads us to believe that the chemical attack at Khan Sheikhoun a week ago was staged, from the photos and videos to the bodies and the first responders…and all courtesy of the the White Helmets. Everything we have discovered leads us to believe that the victims seen in pictures and videos were more likely to have been victims first of the afore mentioned kidnapping by terrorist affiliated rebels before they were victims of murder.
And if you are looking for a name, someone who, by name, can be directly linked to it all…so too were we…and we found the person we now believe could very well be ground zero…Dr. Shajul Islam.
This so-called doctor spent the hours directly after the supposed attack treating the victims and tweeting about the situation. Yes, tweeting, in 140 characters or less, that he was treating three victims, that it was a sarin gas attack, and that he had the proof it was sarin, and not anything but sarin, which he was offering to show to any who were interested, as he claimed to have “samples.” The ‘so-called’ Dr. Islam also offered to video chat with anyone interested in seeing the proof he offered.
Consider the situation in which he found himself during that particular moment. Supposedly, there had just, and we mean just, been a sarin weapons attack in Khan Sheikhun (remember, had it actually been sarin, the death and victim toll would have been extreme, and not limited to 100 or less), and he was supposedly in the act of treating three victims of this claimed sarin nerve agent attack…and yet he had time to send out tweet after tweet, and had the time to go to video chat with anyone who was interested.
Dr. Shajul Islam, from East London, was arrested in 2012 on charges of kidnapping two journalists, one being British journalist John Cantile, who was taken while crossing from Turkey into Syria, and then rescued a week later; and the other, Dutch photographer Jeroen Oerlemans, who was with Cantile.
John Cantile was again kidnapped in Syria, along with journalist James Foley, who was later beheaded by Jihadi John in a widely publicized video. Cantile is still a hostage today, and Oerlemans was shot dead in Libya in 2016.
At the time of the kidnappings this Dr. Islam, and a man by the name of Jubayer Chowdhury, were the only two British jihadis charged with kidnapping westerners inside of Syria. Also, at the time of his ill-fated trial, Dr. Islam, it had been reported, was some sort of associate, knowing the true identity of jihadi John, which we all much later came to find out was Mohammed Emwazi.
But that is certainly not the end of the rap sheet on this supposed doctor…Shajul Islam…as he escaped trial on the kidnapping charges when the only two witnesses failed to appear in court and the charges were then dropped…how convenient was that.
Dr. Islam had been practicing at St Bart’s Hospital in London until last month when he was removed from the medical register after a ‘fitness to practice’ hearing at the General Medical Council, where a secret tribunal panel heard the disciplinary case against him and banned him for misconduct.
The hospital where this supposed Dr. Shajul Islam was working on the ‘victims’ of what he still insists was a sarin nerve agent attack, was Binnish Hospital, in the town of Hama, some 50km north of Khan Sheikhun, where people ‘supposedly’ exposed to sarin were driven in ambulances and trucks by people not wearing any protective gear.
Remember, in one tweet, this so-called doctor claimed to be treating just three victims, and yet in other tweets and videos he posted that day he claimed that, “The patients keep just flooding in from this chemical attack. Every one – every one – has got pinpoint pupils” and in others that, “The patients keep coming, we’ve run out of ventilators,” and “We don’t have enough ventilator space, so we’re now taking out the transport ventilators we have in our ambulances and we’re going to try to modify them to see if we can use them for our patients.”
Let us be very clear on this point, it matters not whether a doctor is working on three or dozens of victims of a sarin or any other sort of chemical weapons attack, said doctor would not have the time to devote to flurries of videos and/or tweets while in the process of dealing with such a mass trauma event. But, if it was all staged, if the victims were not really victims of such an event and their final outcome had been a pre-determined death, that doctor would have all the time he needed to issue all the propaganda he could muster.
We are happy to supply our readers with one more fact directly pertaining to this so-called doctor, this man who had his medical license revoked for misconduct, and who was charged in the jihadi kidnapping of western journalists and who has become the propagandist for Syrian terrorist organizations…he lives and conducts his social media campaigns now in areas controlled by Jabhat al-Fateh, the former al-Qaeda affiliate.
Go to this: https://mobile.twitter.com/DrShajulIslam Dr. Shajul Islam’s twitter page or to this his facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/DoctorShajulIslam/posts/1919551074998170…look at the photos, watch the videos, and note that while those all around him in the videos are speaking Arabic, Islam himself speaks in English. He is playing to the western mainstream media, as any PR firm and propagandist would. Note that he and his fellow doctors are supposedly treating what he claims to be sarin victims while wearing only rubber gloves as protection. Were they really sarin victims, by now both Dr. Islam and his colleagues would be dead.
So, obviously whatever chemical agent that was used to inflict the deaths of those claimed to be from Khan Sheikhoun was not sarin, and was most likely, we believe, chlorine gas…and who in the region is well known for manufacturing low-grade chlorine gas to be used as weapons…none other than ISIS in Syria, and it is ISIS and their splinter factions previously named in this article that are the consorts of the White Helmets, and this expelled from the British medical community, Dr. Islam, has in the past been a player with the White Helmets.
We find all these individual puzzle pieces odd indeed…but when you assemble them into the actual finished puzzle they all fit together and lock into place. First piece is that this was no sarin gas attack by Bashir al-Assad’s government forces but was most likely an attack committed by any one of a number of ‘so-called’ terrorist factions masquerading as rebels who were part of the White Helmets circle of players…players who could be called into action at a moment’s notice.
Second, the true victims of those killed were the given number of people who had been but a week earlier kidnapped from the cities of Majdal and Khattab…those who were already near death by the hands of their kidnappers…those who were then ‘placed’ into position (and note that a large number of the ‘supposed victims had their pants pulled down to the eact same level) and filmed as they died from a specifically targeted chlorine gas attack occurring within a small yet concentrated pre-designated area of the city.
Third, this is why there is no showing of people falling ill or actually in the physical throes of dying in any of the photos or videos we have seen…as in they were either already dead when positioned into place or near death with the chlorine gas finishing them off after what had become yet another routine bombing attack that had already occurred.
Fourth, remember with any gas being especially toxic to babies and children because of their small size and weight, and with babies and children being the prime focus of all the photos and videos, they would be the ones most likely to be filmed because photos of dead children tug at the hearts of civilized men.
Fifth, we believe this entire scenario was possibly orchestrated by one jihadist-aligned, Dr. Shajul Islam and then carried out through his affiliates within the While Helmets.
And why…to get the U.S. to do what the ‘supposed’ rebels could not do…as in bring down the government of Bashir al-Assad by tricking the world via photos and videos into believing that they were the victims…the victims of the only person who they believed stood in their way of having Syria become a state of the caliphate.
And so that brings us to last Thursday night when President Trump had Tomahawks reigning down on an airbase in Syria based upon the information he was given and the photos he was shown. And know that President Trump indeed sent the right message but simply sent it to the wrong ‘address’…meaning the Tomahawks should have been hitting the ‘supposed’ rebel enclaves in the area where this deliberately staged chlorine gas attack occurred.
But no matter as what is done is done and the issue that remains is that we, the Right Side Patriots, believe that our president was given only half of the actual picture, because he was being deliberately misled by someone(s) within our own government who was acting covertly on behalf of those out to kill us all…but that dear reader is for yet another article soon to come.
