#1 I do not understand this at all.
Did people die in this incident?
did they have strange symptoms?
The is saying that the symptoms observed were not the result of a certain poison.
Does anyone know what that poison was, who delivered it and how it was delivered?
The reaction to the attack is, in the article, blamed on the Trump administration. And the media is accused of protecting the Trump administration.
If so that would be a first. Newsweek protects Trump?
I do not believe this.

#3 "Caitlin Johnstone" is a singular character.

Here's her blog entry for Dec 21 2019:

If humanity is to turn away from its murderous, omnicidal, ecocidal, oppressive and exploitative trajectory, it will necessarily involve a sharp, drastic deviation from all its previous patterning.

Blog entry by "Caitlin Johnstone," Dec 12, 2019:

For some reason 9/11 keeps coming up in my online interactions with people lately, both with establishment loyalists who call me a “9/11 truther” and with skeptics who say I don’t write enough about what really happened on that day 18 years ago. So I figured I’ll bang out a few quick paragraphs on the subject in the interest of transparency, and so I don’t have to keep having the same conversations over and over again.

My position on 9/11 itself is pretty simple: I don’t know exactly what happened on the eleventh of September 2001, and I think anyone who claims to know with absolute certainty exactly what happened is fulla shit. But it’s also extremely obvious that the world was lied to about what happened by the US government and its allies, as evidenced by the massive, glaring plot holes in the official 9/11 narrative.

The most concise and rock-solid compilation of these plot holes that I have ever seen was compiled by conspiracy analyst James Corbett in this five-minute video and its accompanying source notes. Corbett made this video eight years ago on the tenth anniversary of 9/11, and to this day I believe it’s the strongest and most irrefutable case against the official narrative.
.

Translation: I'm batshit crazy and completely unreliable.

#8 Sigh...do I really have to trot this out again?



You people are on the second-to-lowest level, ad hominem. You are not addressing the argument, you are attacking the speaker.

All the source documents are at the link. They are Wikileaks, so they are directly from the authorities concerned. Please don't trust me or this blogger, read them yourself. Come to your own conclusions.

The conclusions everyone else has come to is that this was a completely staged event, designed to prevent Trump from ending the Syrian war.

Minutes from an OPCW meeting with toxicologists specialized in chemical weapons: “the experts were conclusive in their statements that there was no correlation between symptoms and chlorine exposure”

http://wikileaks.org/opcw-douma/#OPCW-DOUMA%20-%20Release%20Part%204

OPCW is leaking like a sieve. It was a staged event. This is huge. Why is anyone trying to poo-poo it because I posted a blog link with a summary of the details? Is it because you want the wool pulled over your eyes? That can't be it. Rantburgers are too smart for that, you people sniff out this sort of stuff in other countries all the time.

#9 Thanks Herb. Not quite sure what we'd do without your pyramid memory jogger.

#10 The pyramid trots; like the turkey trots but not as funny.

Your pyramid isn't in spectral order.

#11 According to the leaked minutes from the toxicology meeting, the chief expert offered “the possibility of the event being a propaganda exercise” as one potential explanation for the Douma incident. The other OPCW experts agreed that the key “take-away message” from the meeting was “that the symptoms observed were inconsistent with exposure to chlorine and no other obvious candidate chemical causing the symptoms could be identified”.

I take that as a single data point.

#13 Q re "Caitlin Johnstone's" analysis of fallen humanity, above (cf. the Dec. 21/Winter Solstice incantation):

How does "omnicide" work? Is it like a snake swallowing itself?

If so, when can we expect this person's madness to devour her and make her go away for good?
