Ian Henderson, a veteran OPCW inspector who challenged a cover-up of his organization’s investigation of an alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria, recently testified before the United Nations Security Council. At the meeting, Henderson was both attacked and ignored by U.S., UK, and French diplomats whose governments bombed Syria over allegations that Henderson’s censored investigation undermined.

At another UNSC gathering one week later, the U.S. and its allies continued their censorship campaign by voting to block the testimony of the OPCW’s former chief, José Bustani, who had come to speak out in support of the whistleblowers.

Pushback host Aaron Maté recaps the extraordinary events with excerpts of Henderson and Bustani’s comments, as well as those of the Western ambassadors who tried to silence them.

Comments

  1. Colluding hoax with their raping Jihadists. And when that failed and their Jihadist proxy war failed. They came in guns blazing to try and directly target the president's residence illegally. Biden and Clinton's Jihadists are who should have been MOAB'd now being re-deployed to kill Armenians for NATO Turkey.

  2. 2002 and 2018 under the republicans watch. still think republicans are not warmongers? do you think it's not about oil? why did trump remove our troops and abandon our Kurdish allies, only to order the troops to stay to guard the oil fields. the lives of those people and the lives of our allies mean nothing to the republicans. they only care about the oil and nothing else

  3. uncle Sam and his family they kill you when you dispute their opinion against non western countries or non western people's or challenges their western opinion against humanity.

  4. The UN is a racketeering enterprise. Very profitable for the diplomats and their acolytes, but lethal to world order. Total failure evident in Palestine, Iraq, Venezuela, Libya, Belarus, Afghanistan, Kyrgyzstan, Yemen, Ukraine, Sudan, Syria, among other ruined places. It's a world war, waged by the USA and endorsed by the UN.

  5. uncle Sam family are Nederlanders and Belgium, France and Spain, Italian and white Jewish people's occupation Jerusalem of Palestine Capital and Germany, Switzerland or New Zealand and other western nation's

  6. Further proof he is right. If he were lying these governments would take legal action against him, instead they smear and attack his character and solid professional record.

  7. The video of the children who were supposedly victims of a chemical attack was obvious phony. Nobody cares. Nobody cared that Saddam had no WMD and nobody cares about this. Facts don't matter. Right and wrong don't matter. The empire is all that matters.

  8. Aaron your a national treasure and the only truth teller out there, no one can can compare to your professionalism as a journalist; like your father you have done nothing but truly incredible work, thank you for the very fine work you are doing at great risk I must add.

  9. bolton loves netanyahu more than his own country but he wont go to hell. he will rot in the ground forever. even the devil rejects pure trash.

  10. I'm always amazed at how blatantly dishonest US, UK, and NATO diplomats are. Their cynicism is breathtaking. I've known for a long time that alcoholism is rife among diplomats, and I suppose it's because these people try to stifle what's left of their conscience. Aaron, you're doing the work of the angels.

  11. Israel is Always in the middle of war-mongering, ever since they invaded and occupied land. They stole a country because they did not have their own..WHAT DID THEY PROMISE FOR THIS INSIDIOUS ACT?

  12. Who are the generals that keep shaping the empire's policy in this disgusting and murderous way? Who are the other members of this particular fraction of secret perpetual rule. We see a Bolton, a Cheney, a Rumsfeld, Pompeo, Stephen Miller etc. but we do not see many of the other players in the shadows.

    Let's make a list and name them every time another murderous deception campaign comes up. We'll need their names at Neuremberg later.

  13. 35:18 Excellent response Aaron. The various attempts by those diplomats to defend the censorship of the OPCW investigative findings concerning the Douma "gas attack" and the fabricated conclusions of the final report are not only shameful, but outright criminally-complicit in the abuse of purported Right To Protect (R2P) doctrine that has resulted in a terror campaign against the Syrian population causing the deaths of countless civilians and the displacement of hundreds of thousands more – nothing short of a war crime.

    Honest actors would encourage the presentation of information that had been censored from the original technical assessment.

  14. In the high stakes in the world of pathological empires united to over turn a countries government by force and the manufacturing of consent through propaganda and afterwards bombs such that OPCW would cave under pressure and suppress the truth is by its very nature a very serious and even life threatening thing to expose and report on for reason that should be obvious when one considers all those who have already caved to this pressure. It's criminal!

  16. And Canada just sits back and takes it ,no pushback, no scruples, no morals. Don't forget to include Canada who thinks that not doing anything is good enough! This is my shithole country when it comes to wars ,regime change and the likes.

  17. I don't often agree with Aaron Mate', but in this case, he is absolutely correct, because I dug into this at the time, and much later when the US Military industrial complex and MSM reported that Assad was using chemical weapons on his own people. What I conclude was that the Obama funded White Helmets, were working directly with ISIS to stage this event, because Trump had stated that he was going to pull the troops out of Syria. The CIA under Brennan, working with Bolton, Mattis and (the 3rd name escapes me) tried to deliberately goad Trump into escalating the war on Assad with false information. It is not just the US swamp that needs draining, it goes right up to the United Nations and globalist Organisations.

  18. Democracy Now? Adversarial? Just look who funds them. Picking up this story also might put a dent into St. Obama's halo – that can't be allowed to happen. To expose Obama as a warmongering cog in the MIC's bipartisan machine.

  19. Great ? report shame on those called western countries such shame that they scream about democracy and freedom while they're not repentance any of it.

  20. WTF ~ the U.S. Military Sychophants of the, Mass Murdering, HUMAN SACRIFICE of HIS OWN people FOR PROFIT, Psychopath, Occupying our government, can do no wrong on foreign land❓❗❓
