About the videos of the August 21st massacre

+

A controversy surfaced regarding the doubts expressed by Russian diplomacy regarding the dates of the videos of the slaughter committed in Damascus, on August 21st 2013 [1]. We had noticed that the videos, posted on Majles Rif’s account, were dated August 20th [2].

In an ’’attempt to clarify’’, the author of the account indicated that these videos were posted at 05h00 Universal Time, in other words 07h00 am in Damascus. Knowing that there is a time difference of 9 hours with California, the YouTube clock was still on the 20th of August.

However, the shadows in the fourth video, recorded outdoors, show the sun almost at it’s peak. It is impossible for this video to have been shot in the early morning. We therefore maintain that these videos have been shot before the massacre that they display.

It is not the only question raised by these videos : the nursing staff’s lack of protection, the symptoms of the sick that do not correspond in any way to those of sarin gas victims, etc., are but a few others.
