When ‘the truth’ bombs
If democratic institutions are dismantled or corrupted to achieve political or military goals, then we all have a problem.
If the media don’t hold these organizations to account then all is lost.
In 2018 the UK, US and France bombed Syria on the pretext that President Bashar Assad had used chemical weapons against his own people.
The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) were sent in to independently evaluate if this was true. OPCW whistleblowers have now come forward to question the legitimacy and independence of the OPCW report.
Host Ross Ashcroft is joined by writer and investigative journalist Tareq Haddad and by the Co-director of the organization for propaganda studies and convener of the working group on Syria, Dr. Piers Robinson, to discuss the OPCW leaks and the ongoing battle for your mind.
