Footage of chemical attack on Aug 21st in Syria is fraud

Touted by both the US and British government as “open source reporting evidence”, hundreds of YouTube videos and online photos have been used to underpin their alleged case that the Syrian government carried out chemical attacks on its own people.

There is only one problem now: much of this evidence has now been exposed as fraudulent propaganda and can no longer be rightly attributed to chemical attacks which took place on August 21, 2013 in Gouta outside of Damascus.

The exhibits mentioned below are undoubtedly false representations of events of August 21st, so this begs the painful question – how many more of John Kerry’s “open source reports” are also fake?

One can only conclude that the governments of the US, UK and France are touting around bogus social media imagery as justification to bomb a country where they've already been involved in on the side of the armed opposition for over two years now. This time, the people aren't buying the lies

RT reports…
There is proof the footage of the alleged chemical attack in Syria was fabricated, Mother Agnes Mariam el-Salib, mother superior of St. James Monastery in Qara, Syria, told RT. She says she is about to submit her findings to the UN.
Mother Agnes, a catholic nun, who has been living in Syria for 20 years and has been reporting actively on what has been going on in the war-ravaged country, says she carefully studied the video featuring allegedly victims of the chemical weapons attack in the Syrian village of Guta in August and now questions its authenticity. 

In her interview with RT, Mother Agnes doubts so much footage could have been taken in so little time, and asks where parents of the supposedly dead children are. She promises to send her report to the UN.

The nun is indignant with the world media for apparently turning a blind eye to the Latakia massacre by rebel extremists, which left 500 civilians including women and children dead.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry has called on the international community to pay attention to revelations made by Mother Agnes Mariam el-Salib.

RT: The United States has used internet photos and video footage of the supposed chemical weapons attack in Eastern Guta to build a case against the Syrian government. Have you been able to look at these files? What do you have to say about them?
