On Not Being Refuted 295


Several million people have now read my articles on the lack of evidence of Russian government guilt for the Salisbury attack. That’s over 300,000 unique visitors on this little blog alone so far, and it has been repeated on hundreds of sites all over the internet. My own tweets on the subject have been retweeted over 12,500 times and received 8 million impressions. I know that journalists from every mainstream media outlet you can mention have seen the material, because of numerous tweets from them none of which address any of the facts, but instead call me a “Conspiracy nutter” or variants of that, some very rude.

Yet what I wrote has not been refuted. It would be very easy to refute were it not true. The government would just have to say “Porton Down have stated that they have definitely identified the nerve agent as made in Russia”. They have not said that. Most extraordinarily, not one mainstream media “journalist” has asked a minister the question: “You keep using this phrase the nerve agent is “of a type developed by Russia”. Are you able to confirm it was actually made in Russia?” .

There is no excuse for this. Literally hundreds of mainstream media “journalists” have slavishly reproduced the propaganda phrase “of a type developed by Russia” without a single one of them every querying this rather odd wording, or why it is the government always uses that precise wording again and again and again.

It goes without saying that not a single mainstream media “journalist” has reported that fact either that until recently Porton Down believed that “novichoks” had probably never actually been synthesised successfully and that the OPCW has never banned them on the grounds that there was no evidence of their physical existence.

Finally I wish to repeat these important facts:

1) Israel has major undeclared stocks of chemical weapons
2) Israel is one of a handful of countries, including North Korea, not to ratify the Chemical Weapons Convention and commit to destroy its chemical weapons
3) Israel is not a member of the OPCW and refuses to declare its chemical weapon stocks to the OPCW.

These are also facts you will never, ever see reported in mainstream media and entirely predictably the corporate lickspittles of the mainstream media have been out in force on socal media justifying their refusal to act on any of the information I have given on the grounds I am an “anti-semite”. A more extreme example of using any criticism of Israel to allege anti-semitism is hard to conceive.

The contribution of Jewish people to human development in fields including science, literature, music, art and commerce has been simply magnificent and utterly disproportionate to their numbers. The genocidal policy of Israel towards the Palestinians these last seventy years, and its rogue state status as regard chemical and nuclear wmds is a completely different question, for which I in no way blame the generality of Jewish people. In fact my position on this is the opposite of a BDS position. I actually want Israel to join OPCW, be a full member and cooperate in the destruction of its chemical weapon stocks.

I think I might now have a vodka. Of a type developed by Russia. Made in Warrington.

    You’re right, of course, they have no answer, if Porton Down through chemical analysis, or the UK police through investigation, cannot find anything. Any outright fabrication of a connection to Russia (which may or may not exist, though I suspect a third party was involved) will be scrutinized by the OPCW. So they seem to be in an impasse of assuming guilt but unable to proceed. For now. Solution? Ignore the demands for answers to completely legitimate questions and flood the media with anti-Russia fluff stories and other distractions.

    • Ingwe

      Everything has been said really about this clear false-flag operation. One has to see it in the wider context of the US and Britain wanting to massively engage their military involvement in Syria having failed to bring about regime change there by supporting proxy opposition forces.
      The US has declared that it can increase its involvement militarily without Congress’s approval and by doing so it is likely to conflict with Russian forces there. Therefore, in preparation for a major conflict with Russia the US and Britain are hyping up the Russian demon to make the conflict acceptable to the people. The sad thing is that it may only be history that condemns this travesty, given the lack of alternative coverage. That is if the escalation doesn’t mean the end of history!

      • Kiza

        There is also a probability that this propaganda attack on Russia is intended to discredit Russia’s defence of Assad from the Western organised and moderate-terrorist-executed CW false flags in Syria. It would imply that Russia is helping and directing Syria’s CW attacks on “rebbels”. This would then be used as a justification for deeper and more direct military intervention of UK, US and France in Syria.

      • AS

        @Ingwe That does indeed seem highly possible, though the risks of military conflict with Russia, over Syria, or anywhere else, seem absurdly high. If Russia has been set up, will it be able to expose the fact? Or want to?

        • Ingwe

          AS-I’m no apologist for Putin or his party. Russia is a gangster state. Unfortunately, so is the USA and Britain too follows the US bullying deciding which states are allowed to determine their own futures and which states need regime change.
          Whether or not Russia can expose this particular false flag exercise or the anti-Russian drum roll in general, it highlights the fact that the people of Russia, the USA, UK and indeed everywhere, have to organise themselves into progressive movements and not to expect their “leaders” to do anything. Global war is a state reaction by states facing crises. There is NO identity interest of these states and their people.

          • AS

            @Ingwe You don’t need to explain that to me and I concur entirely. It just occurs to me that were a third party responsible, depending on which it might not be in either the UK or Russia’s interest to expose that fact, even if either or both discovered. As you say, it is up to us to form and sustain progressive movements to hold all states to account.

  • Jiusito

    Craig, I keep being reminded by this unfolding story and your analysis of it of two not-entirely-irrelevant incidents from the past:

    1) Mossad’s attempted assassination of Khalid Mish’al in Amman in 1995. An agent squirted poison in his ear, but was chased and caught by Mish’al’s quick-witted bodyguards. An international furore followed.

    2) The killing, deliberate or otherwise, of Yvonne Fletcher in 1984, which helped to turn British public opinion decisively against Libya. The official version is that she was shot from inside the Libyan embassy, but (as I’m sure you know) there were very good reasons to believe that the bullet came from the taller building next door. Unfortunately, the two Channel 4 documentaries that made the case, though posted on YouTube, cannot be viewed in the UK “for copyright reasons”. They were plausible enough for Tam Dalyell to raise the issue in the House of Commons, though he got a very dismissive answer from a junior minister.

      I use that quote a lot about journalists. They can’t ask those questions, or they’d be shown the door, as it were. I wonder if journalism has always been like this, or has it got worse over the years. Certainly there’s little investigative reporting. Another good quote, was to Andrew Marr: “if you believed anything different you wouldn’t be sitting where you are.” I think it was Chomsky, though I’m not certain!

        Presstitutes bring prostitution into disrepute, because prostitutes sell their bodies only, do not lie and do not hurt anyone. Presstitutes on the other hand pollute the minds and get people’s lives destroyed and even killed by millions.

        • palmtoptiger

          I’d actually go further and say that prostitutes are vastly better than presstitutes, since prostitutes actually do a good thing for many, many men who wouldn’t otherwise be able to have sex (e.g. because of disabilities or poor genes i.e. ugliness) or have sex with similarly good-looking women, or who aren’t getting it from their wife (who has every right to deny the husband sex in Western societies at her whim).

          personally I like high-end escorts by far the most of pretty much all women I know. they are often nice, professional, honest, relaxed, very good-looking girls well-versed in sex yet also quite careful about protection and hygiene. comparing them to the utter garbage that is modern presstitutes of both genders is a blatant and totally undeserved insult.

  • Mark Russell

    All credit to you for speaking out and questioning the government and media position. It’s difficult to imagine how stressful this must be. Whilst I accept that Russia had motive, capability and past form, you are correct to point out that others have the same qualifications. The Khaled Mahaal assassination attempt in 1997 by Mossad on direct orders fro Netenyahu, is a case in point.

    I am concerned that by using the term “Israel”, there is a danger that the message will be lost in a chorus of anti-Semitism and I am glad you clarified your views on the Jewish people – they are as much victims as the rest of us. I think I prefer the term Anglo Zionist Alliance – as it more accurately describes the organisation beginning to emerge from the shadows.

    Good luck and stay strong.

      Using the term ‘Israel’ is better, as Craig does, as it is a physical state, with political interests.

    Christopher Steele – Andrew McCabe

    The first link below is from an article in the Daily Mail today, 17 March 2018. It refers to an event which happened late yesterday evening in the US with regard to the firing of Andrew McCabe, ex-FBI man on Friday 16 March 2018:-

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5512029/U-S-Attorney-General-Sessions-fires-former-FBI-no-2-McCabe.html

    Trump celebrates the firing of ‘choirboy’ FBI deputy McCabe days before his retirement claiming he knew of ‘corruption at the highest level’ – but ex-director says White House is at ‘war’ with the agency

    Jeff Sessions fired McCabe late Friday saying he had likely lied under oath
    It came just two days before McCabe was due to retire, cancelling his pension
    Full government pension was said to be worth about $1.8million
    He was involved in Clinton email investigation and Russia meddling probe
    McCabe blasts firing saying he’d been ‘singled out’ in Trump’s ‘war’ on the FBI
    Trump replies its ‘a great day for the hard working men and women of the FBI’
    Nunes memo said McCabe testified that FBI did not rely on ‘dirty dossier’
    That memo also alleged the dossier was a key piece of FBI’s FISA application
    McCabe took leave from FBI in January days before that memo was released
    Full inspector general report on potential FBI malfeasance due in coming weeks
    Comes amid mounting calls for second special counsel to investigate FISA court

    Also yesterday, Friday 16 March 2018, late evening UK time, which because of the time difference that exists between the UK and US means it was the UK event which happened first, this news item as it pertains to Christopher Steele was not mentioned in any UK MSM outlet (as far as I have been able to observe) but was instead aired on US Fox News – presumably designed this way in the expectation and hope that all good Brits and some bad ones too would be tucked up safely in bed by then and not seen it.

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/03/16/christopher-steele-must-appear-for-dossier-deposition-in-british-court.html

    The man at the epicenter of the dodgy dossier, former British MI-6 officer Christopher Steele, was ordered by an English court Friday to appear for a videotaped deposition in London to be used as trial testimony in ongoing civil litigation against Buzzfeed for publishing the unverified dossier.

    This event establishes that at least some quarters of HM gov know exactly where Christopher Steele is, not that they do not know where he is.

    If HM gov is looking after him lest those nasty Ruskies get to him as has been intimated, then this is a very clear if at the same time obscured acknowledgement by HM gov that the Trump dossier that Christopher Steele wrote is false, if HM gov is assisting matters in the US for allowing Mr Steele to be brought to task in HM courts but only via video-link.

    No doubt, had Mr Steele been required to attend court in person, pesky reporters from RT and elsewhere would have spotted him and wanted to ask awkward questions.

    • lysias

      With regard to probable UK government involvement in the Steele dossier, let us remember that the head of GCHQ resigned a week after Trump was inaugurated last year.

  • Teresa Grover

    Cheers Pan Craig, nazdrowe dziekuje for all your information. So refreshing from the usual tory fueled media lies.

  • Robson

    Well you can see why people are upset – stating that Israel has chemical weapons does not mean it has anything to do with this. It’s unlikely we (the public) will ever know the provenance of the substance used. We don’t even know how it was administered. Clearly there is a Russian connection in that the victims are Russian, and another Russian has been killed.

    I’m not sure I know anything else.

    • Trowbridge H. Ford

      Given the UK”s manufacturing of Russophobic claims, and the presence of Russians there, they are all sitting ducks.

    • Kiza

      Do you realise that Ms Scripal is an injured Russian citizen who has been kidnaped by Her Majesties Government represented by Theresa May, between 12 and 14 March when she was transferred into the care of the British intelligence whilst in hospital and unconscious. This has potentially compromised all the evidence of her poisoning in a legal sense, so much so that apparently some international lawyers are considering a Habeas Corpus application to the British Courts to force the government to relinquish her back to civilian police care. A minor point is that the Russian consul in UK has also been declined access. Therefore, kidnaped: http://johnhelmer.net/test-of-theresa-mays-rule-of-law-an-application-for-habeas-corpus-for-yulia-skripal/

      But a precedent has been set before in case of MH17, with the involvement of the intelligence services into a civilian criminal matter. Perhaps the simple rule is – when the intelligence services get involved into a criminal matter, then the case has been politicised.

  • Dave

    Although the term racism is deliberately over-used/abused, it’s over-used/abuses by the same special interest group that now over-uses/abuses the term anti-Semitism. The difference is, when the deemed enemy of the special interest was the ‘Right’, the term racism was used, but now its deemed the ‘Left’, anti-Semitism is used.

    And its the same special interest that promotes hate crime legislation, which soon morphed into hate speech, thought crime, which is designed to protect the powerful special interest group rather than the weak. Hence you can’t say a word of criticism about the powerful special interest group without being denounced throughout the MSM, which clearly illustrates the point.

    And if you identify the special interest group, that’s denounced as anti-Semitism too. Many people appear paralysed by the terms racism and anti-Semitism and the terms are used with all the venom and hatred of a genuine racist and anti-Semite. That is the accusers are accusing the accused with their own crimes. I.e. Its humbug, underpinned by law.

    The solution is to recapture the words for their true meaning and where appropriate accuse the special interest group and Zionists of racism and anti-Semitism.

  • JohnsonR

    Another stock (for different reasons) phrase I think you should go after, Craig, is “the independent/international rules-based system/order”, when it is used in its various forms by countries that shamelessly breach that system, and their uncritical allies. The term was apparently just now used in Moscow by our Ambassador there (“We will always do what is necessary to defend ourselves, our allies and our values against an attack of this sort, which is an attack not only on the United Kingdom, but upon the international rules-based system on which all countries, including Russia, depend for their safety and security”), and it was used by the White House in its Statement by the Press Secretary on the United Kingdom’s Decision to Expel Russian Diplomats three days ago.

    Yet just in the days before that White House release, the US had openly stated its intention to launch straightforwardly illegal unilateral military attacks upon Syria based upon the spurious pretext of supposed chemical weapons use. This is of course (even the statement itself, which constitutes a “threat of force”, let alone any actual attacks, such as the one perpetrated last year) a clear breach of the supposed “international rules based order”, since the US has voluntarily signed up, under the UN Charter, to “refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force”.

    Has there been a peep of condemnation from the British government about this flagrant US breach of the international rules-based order by their main ally? If so, I haven’t seen it.

    Just days ago the French made similar openly illegal threats to use force in Syria. Again, a disgraceful public flouting of the international rules-based order. Has there been a peep of disapproval, let alone protest, from HMG? If there has, I haven’t seen it.

    Doubtless the “international rules based order” is ignored as often as not by most countries when they can get away with it. But the conjunction of these obvious and outrageous US and French breaches with the sanctimonious declarations by the US and UK governments is surely newsworthy. Has any UK media figure or outlet even commented upon the obvious hypocrisy? If so, I haven’t seen it. I suspect they’ve all been too busy acting as stenographers to the powerful, and attacking you for doing the job they ought to be doing.

    • Harry Law

      JohnsonR. Unfortunately the rules based order system has broken down, the West are now trying to partition Syria…
      Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov has condemned illegitimate presence of foreign forces in Syria, saying that it “contradicted international law and the UN Charter.”
      “US, French, UK special forces are ‘on the ground’ in Syria. So it is not a ‘proxy war’ anymore, but direct engagement in the warfare,”
      Furthermore, the foreign minister said that the Americans are “planting local authorities” on the eastern shore of the Euphrates River.

      “What is happening on the eastern shore of the Euphrates River, where Americans have indeed liberated vast territories from terrorists with the help of the Kurds, but plant local authorities, who are intentionally isolating themselves from Damascus, and declare that they will support these authorities without any contacts with the Syrian government,” he said.
      Earlier this week, the minister stated that the progress achieved at the Astana talks on Syria, including due to Russia’s efforts, was not being welcomed by those striving to divide the country into small territories under their control.
      “Those who, in violation of all norms of international law, in violation of Resolution 2254, obviously seek to divide Syria, to replace the regime so that this important Middle Eastern country is replaced by small principalities, controlled by external players, certainly do not welcome what we are doing in Astana, we are trying to achieve in Astana,” Lavrov said in a welcoming speech before the talks with his Iranian and Turkish counterparts in Astana. https://sputniknews.com/middleeast/201803171062630702-syria-partition-foiled-lavrov/

      • JohnsonR

        The rules based order was always pretty questionable in reality, but there might have been a chance to create something like it in the aftermath of the collapse of the Soviet Union, if the sole remaining superpower had wanted to do so. Instead, they went for a power grab, and the rest is history.

        That Kosovo war against Yugoslavia was the key point. The Commons Foreign Affairs Select Committee spent considerable time afterwards trying to fabricate a “humanitarian intervention” pretext to legalise the war, but ultimately even those masterful hypocrites, weaselers and whitewashers had to give up and concede grudgingly that the war was probably illegal but supposedly justified anyway. After that, of course Blair and Bush’s attack on Iraq blew away any idea of even pretending to follow international law.

        “the West are now trying to partition Syria”

        Of course they are, and all the action involving Russia needs to be considered in that light.

      • Laguerre

        “Unfortunately the rules based order system has broken down, the West are now trying to partition Syria…”

        The West is not now [newly] trying to partition Syria – the effort has been going on for nearly the length of the war. The reason that there’s a big fuss about it now, is that the policy is failing. And we’re now in the phase of the “Surge”, that is the attempt to put in more resources to turn around a failing situation, as happened in Iraq and Afghanistan. The French didn’t succeed in partitioning Syria, nor will the US, as the Syrian Jazira is not a good base, and the Kurds not that enthusiastic, while they’ve got their own troubles in Afrin.

    I think all these parties have to much blood on their hands.to turn back now..they ignore you and they ignore the science…just like man create institutions and then the institutions go on to make the man they are trapped by their own edifices…the deception is justified by the end they seek..in this case to weaken the Russians and prevent expansion peaceful or otherwise..

    Not to single Israel out..as deception has always been a tool of war and . Both a science and an art..it was used effectively to get the Americans to bomb Libya.

    http://ariwatch.com/OurAlly/Libya.htm
    “Here Mr. Ostrovsky describes in detail how in mid February 1986 the Mossad planted a radio relay device – the “Trojan” – in a rented apartment in Tripoli, the capital of Libya. However interesting, we cut to the consequences. One over-long paragraph has been broken up for clarity.

    By the end of March, the Americans were already intercepting messages broadcast by the Trojan, which was only activated during heavy communication traffic hours. Using the Trojan, the Mossad tried to make it appear that a long series of terrorist orders were being transmitted to various Libyan embassies around the world … . As the Mossad had hoped, the transmissions were deciphered by the Americans and construed as ample proof that the Libyans were active sponsors of terrorism. What’s more, the Americans pointed out, Mossad reports confirmed it”

    Just like the science disproved the DNC Hack based on the speed of the data transmitted and the U.S. East coast origin…it has been ignored! The parties and news media have worked as one incestuous monolithic body..to say Russia..w/o a shred of evidence..and as here the only people touting the “Russians did it Mantra” won’t reveal the evidence while being a part of the very MIC ,Think Tanks and Atlantic Council. They want this cold war..along with it’s many hybrid wars..
    So no..Theresa and her army of Louise Mensche clones fanatically forge ahead knowing full well it is a fabrication..The American President knows it..his butt still sore from the Dossier matter which born out of a collusion between two states who see him as a threat just for saying that Russia would be a great ally in the fight on terrorism..and that same fake hack, that same fake Dossier, with the same people, from Ex mi6 Steele to Robert Hannigan who resigned of GCHQ , to Skripal, a useful tool, now curiously has led us to a clumsily cobbled together gas attack by you guessed it Russians , w/o a iota of evidence except Say So..during the eve of Putins election..
    Boggles the mind

  • What's going on?

    I can’t help thinking that the Salisbury incident is meant to look highly questionable. It’s as if someone wants the people to rise up against a highly incompetent government. I don’t think May is setting herself up for failure in a range of areas so that she is forced to resign or lose an election later this year, why would she do that?

    Since she is known for listening to a select few advisers and ploughing on with projects despite evidence that she is flogging a dead horse, she would be the perfect patsy for a small group of people who want to control things behind the scenes. She was shoe horned into the leadership and then Nick and Fiona were effectively in charge, whilst she took the blame. Is there a small group of people behind the scenes with a complex plan to lance the Brexit boil, thus resolving the question for a generation if not evermore?

    • Laguerre

      A curious article to cite. The Israelis have always told us they are not intervening in Syria. So it is of no importance whether Ghouta falls or not

  • CanSpeccy

    Excellent. Not surprising the shills of the MSM hate you.

    But the lies of the MSM and HM Government ministers aside, what is actually going on?

    You’ve mentioned the Israelis several times, they have the means to nerve-gas a harmless Russian in Salisbury, but what would be their motive? Sure, they don’t like what Russia is doing in Syria, but how does assassinating Skripal help them? Do they think blaming the Russians for wiping out one of their own will serve as a justification for WW3, or what?

    Or is it perhaps an American stunt, to justify more anti-Russian economic sanctions, specifically termination of the NordStream pipeline, so the US can force dopey Europeans to buy America’s surplus gas (a byproduct of fracking for oil) in liquified form at three times the price of Russian pipeline gas?

    I appreciate that you have maintained a sharp focus on the facts, but consideration of motive may be the only way to understand the facts.

    Incidentally, when the Russian’s (Putin’s spokesperson) said that Boris Johnson’s assertion that Putin has almost certainly personally ordered the attack on Skripal, was a case of “unforgivable diplomatic misconduct” what practical significance does that have, if any? Does it mean an end to diplomatic relations, or what?

    • Kiza

      I know that you expect a response from Mr Murray but please see my comment above as to why the Skripal case is being used the way it is being used. It is most likely to discredit Russia as a defender of the Syrian Government against now regular CW false flags, it turns them into a complicit party to CW use in Syria. This would explain why US and France fell into line so quickly.

      As to what will happen with Crazy Boris, well he will probably never see Russia in his remaining lifetime.

      I agree John, the settlement enterprise has been ongoing for 50 years, they are classed as grave war crimes by article 49.6 of the 1949 Geneva Conventions and the Rome Statute [ICC, now a UK Act of Parliament].

Many UNSC Resolutions have affirmed their illegality, BDS is the least anyone can do.

    “The Administration is confronting and countering malign Russian cyber activity, including their attempted interference in U.S. elections, destructive cyber-attacks, and intrusions targeting critical infrastructure,” said Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin. “These targeted sanctions are a part of a broader effort to address the ongoing nefarious attacks emanating from Russia. Treasury intends to impose additional CAATSA sanctions, informed by our intelligence community, to hold Russian government officials and oligarchs accountable for their destabilizing activities by severing their access to the U.S. financial system.””

    “And the blackouts weren’t just isolated attacks. They were part of a digital blitzkrieg that has pummeled Ukraine for the past three years—a sustained cyber­assault unlike any the world has ever seen. A hacker army has systematically undermined practically every sector of Ukraine: media, finance, transportation, military, politics, energy. Wave after wave of intrusions have deleted data, destroyed computers, and in some cases paralyzed organizations’ most basic functions. “You can’t really find a space in Ukraine where there hasn’t been an attack,” says Kenneth Geers, a NATO ambassador who focuses on cybersecurity.”
