A guide to the circumstances surrounding this document

It is a quintessentially British Establishment document. Commissioned by a British Spook-beholden, reactionary Gulf State Monarchy with a dreadful human-rights record; organised by top-shelf, top-price, London law firm Messrs Carter Ruck - notorious for its expertise in the use of UK libel laws on behalf of the mega-wealthy and the defense of suspected 'al-Qaeda' terrorists; and written by establishment individuals who played a precisely analogous role in the stitch-up that triggered the NATO bombing of the former Yugoslavia.

Timeline

  • A group of lawyers produce a "confidential" report on human rights violations in Syria.
  • Their report is based on a single anonymous source.
  • This anonymous source claims to have been employed by the Syrian government to photograph dead bodies.
  • The authors of the report find their secret source "credible and truthful" and his account "most compelling".
  • The report is "leaked" to major news outlets in the UK and USA just ahead of a conference whose main sticking point is whether the Anglo-Zionist Empire will allow Syrian President Assad to stay in power.
  • Nobody in the corporate media questions this sequence of events - so wearily familiar to those who study the modus-operandi and manufactured casus-belli of Western interference in the Middle East.
  • Sensationalised reports of the its contents are given prominent coverage in both the US and UK media the before the Geneva 2 conference is due to convene in Montreux, Switzerland. [1] [2]

And finally,

  • Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov is the only senior non-Syrian diplomat due to attend the conference who says that the report must be carefully investigated before it is believed. The rest either take it as gospel or remain silent.
