10/16/20 Aaron Maté: OPCW Malfeasance and More ‘Russiagate’ Updates

by | Oct 16, 2020 | Interviews

Scott interviews Aaron Maté about his testimony to the UN Security Council regarding the alleged chemical weapons attack in Douma, Syria in 2018. After the Trump administration authorized retaliatory bombing in response to the incident, the OPCW sent investigators to follow up on the claims of chemical weapons use. After a year, they released a report justifying the U.S. response. The trouble, as Maté explains, is that OPCW inspectors then started coming forward claiming that their findings had been altered or suppressed in order to paint a more favorable picture for the U.S. and its allies. In reality, these investigators say, the attack was staged to look like a chemical attack in order to incite American intervention. Maté is working to make sure the truth comes out. He also comments on recent revelations in the “Russiagate” story.
