This is how the fake news suppresses the truth.

Journalist Tareq Haddad announced last week on his Twitter account that he has quit Newsweek after they censored his story about faked chemical weapons attacks in Syria.

I have collected evidence of how they suppressed the story in addition to evidence from another case where info inconvenient to US govt was removed, though it was factually correct.

I am seeking legal advice on how to proceed and whether I may be entitled to some type of whistleblower protection due to possibly fraudulent behaviour. At very least, I will publish the evidence I have without divulging the confidential information.

According to documents that were obtained and published by Wikileaks, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) hid intelligence from the public report about their investigation into an alleged 2018 Syrian chemical weapon attack in Douma.

Propaganda about the chemical weapons attack was initially promoted by the “White Helmets” Al Qaeda group and then echoed by the fake news media. A member of the team sent by OPCW to Douma on Apr. 7, 2018 wrote an email expressing their concern that the report released by the organization left out lots of key information.

The email’s author expressed dismay with the report’s indication that sufficient evidence was found of the presence of “chlorine, or another reactive chlorine-containing chemical.” The whistleblower noted that “likely one or more chemicals that contain a reactive chlorine atom. Such chemicals could include… the major ingredient of household chlorine-based bleach. Purposely singling out chlorine gas as one of the possibilities is disingenuous.”

The redactions within the report were seemingly performed to deliberately mislead the public. The report claimed that it came to its conclusions ”based on the high levels of various chlorinated organic derivatives detected in environmental samples.” The author noted that they “were, in most cases, present only in parts per billion range, as low as 1-2 ppb, which is essentially trace quantities.”
