For six years and ever since the alleged “chemical weapons attack” in Ghouta, Syria in 2013, the Western corporate press has stuck with the easily disproven claim that the Syrian government “gassed” its own people. That lie has been repeatedly debunked by researchers in the alternative media but that hasn’t altered the onslaught of propaganda coming from mainstream “journalists.”
Now, however, one of their own, a mainstream Belgian reporter who was captured by the West’s Free Syrian Army terrorists, has begun blowing the lid off the lies that the Syrian government committed the “chemical attack.”
The reporter, Pierre Piccinin da Prata, recently gave an interview with Belgian RTL, where he told of a conversation he heard between rebels that exonerated President Bashar al-Assad and stated clearly that "“It wasn’t the government of Bashar al-Assad that used Sarin gas or any other gas in Ghouta." As a result, the majority of his scheduled interviews with mainstream outlets were cancelled.
Piccinin was a war reporter and Editor-In-Chief of The Maghreb and Orient Courrier and was held hostage by the Syrian “rebels” alongside Italian war reporter Domenico Quirico for five long months. He is now exposing the propaganda peddled by his colleagues and calling on them to correct what they have got so wrong about Syria since 2011.
The text of a recent interview between Piccinin and Syria Times is included below:
