Moder Agnes befinner sig i USA på föredragsturné, och orsakade turbulens inför ett planerat möte i London. Men här är en intressant intervju med henne. Bl.a. säger hon att hon nu är än mer säker på att vissa av videorna från gas-attacken i slutet av augusti i Damaskus var producerade på förhand!

The study was done in a hurry – we even said it was a beta version. Now I am finalizing the study that will introduce even more evidence. Those videos – numbers 1, 6, 11, 13 among the 13 videos claimed by the US intelligence community as authenticated and verified to be presented to Congress as genuine evidence of CW attacks – are fake, staged and pre-fabricated.

voiceofrussia.com – Syria’s humanitarian problems shouldn’t be manipulated – Lavrov

Russia is against the practice of manipulating the issue of humanitarian aid for Syria and using it as a pretext for external intervention, said Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
”Like the chemical weapons issue in rigged or untrue reports was used to urge the West to start a war against the regime, humanitarian aid is being manipulated by some as a pretext for external intervention,” he told a media forum in Rome.
”Hysterics erupted a few weeks ago about a polio epidemic in Syria and calls we issued for sending an epidemiologists corps to that country and for building hospitals,” he said.
”We checked this information with the World Health Organization. There were ten polio cases. But despite this small number of cases, vaccines were sent to Syria and children are being vaccinated. This is the way one should act if aid is to be provided,” Lavrov said.

sverigesradio.se – Svenska journalister bortförda i Syrien

Två svenska journalister, fotografen Niclas Hammarström och reportern Magnus Falkehed, har blivit bortförda i Syrien, uppger UD för Ekot.

Falkehed var inte i Syrien på uppdrag av DN. Hammarström är nog ”den bland svenska fotografer som har störst erfarenhet av Syrien”. Hm, vad kan det ha varit för skumt uppdrag de var ute på, och på uppdrag av vem?

dn.se – DN-medarbetare bortförd i Syrien

Bortförandet ska ha ägt rum i lördags. Uppgifterna om var det skett är oklara, men troligen nära landets gräns.
– Vi gör nu allt för att få fram fler uppgifter om detta, säger DN:s utrikeschef Pia Skagermark.
– Vi samarbetar nära med Magnus Falkehed, som är vår stringer i Paris, men har inga egna uppgifter om denna resa. Magnus var inte i Syrien på uppdrag av DN

Fredric Alm, medarbetare på bildjournalistbyrån Kontinent, bekräftar för DN att frilansfotografen och byråmedlemmen Niclas Hammarström är en av de båda som bortförts. Han säger till DN att man kände till att Falkehed och Hammarström rest till Syrien via Beirut.
– Vi hade en överenskommelse om att hålla kontakt. När Niclas inte hörde av sig som avtalat så undersökte vi vad som hade hänt. Samtidigt tog vi kontakt med deras anhöriga samt UD, säger Fredric Alm, som menar att Niclas Hammarström ”nog är den bland svenska fotografer som har störst erfarenhet av Syrien”:

Om den artikel som pekade ut Saudiarabien som de som låg bakom kem-attacken i augusti utanför Damaskus –
Phil Greaves – The Syria Chemical Weapons Attack and the Role of Saudi Intelligence. The Mint News Report, New MintPress Statement Reveals Saudi Pressure on Reporter.

The logical answer is that those reflected negatively in Yahya Ababneh and Dale Gavlaks’ Ghouta report have something to hide, and are going to great lengths to keep it hidden.

Och en blogg som grundligt gått igenom kem-vapen-händelsen –
