The controversial White Helmets who have been involved in staged “gas attacks” in Syria that were used as a pretext for attacking Assad, are fleeing the country and will reportedly move to Western countries. Their exodus coincides with Trump’s talks with Putin where it appears that they both promised Israel they would contain Iran’s influence in Syria.
While the White Helmets claim to be neutral, they have been accused of staging chemical attacks, and they are linked to the al-Nusra terror group. The US State Department is reviewing its support for the White Helmets that have received at least $32 million from US taxpayers. The White Helmets are well-funded for a group that claims to be self-organized.
UK Daily Mail Online article from 2013 that reported leaked emails showing the Obama White House had given approval for US-backed rebels in Syria to covertly carry out a chemical weapons attack on civilians and blame it on Syrian President Assad, as justification for US military action against Syria. Children’s corpses were posed in photos, making a strong emotional impact – Jake says the photos were taken by the White Helmets in Douma.
A new chemical attack against Syrian citizens has been blamed on Syrian President Assad. Predictably, the US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, is blaming Assad and calling for war before an independent investigation of the event can be conducted. It is highly suspicious that the medics at the scene of the supposed gas attack are the ‘White Helmets’ who are linked to al Qaeda and who previously have been exposed staging fake attacks and providing actors to play the role of victims.
Hollywood’s propaganda department gave an Academy Award to The White Helmets for best documentary short feature, when it would have been more appropriate to classify it as fiction. The White Helmets film praises the Syrian rescue group as heroes, but they are actually a terrorist support group affiliated with al-Nusra, and funded by at least $100 million from USAID, the British Foreign Office, other EU states and Qatar for covert operations.
