11/7/19 Elizabeth Murray Exposes the Lies Behind Douma

by | Nov 9, 2019

Scott interviews Elizabeth Murray about the supposed chemical attack in Douma, Syria in 2017, which was used to justify an immediate bombing campaign by the U.S. and its allies. A thorough investigation was only conducted months later, and the reports of this investigation were not released until 2019. Murray and her colleagues, along with a group of OPCW whistleblowers, have recently pointed out all the problems with the claims about this supposed chemical attack. During her career in national security, Murray learned how dangerous politicization of intelligence agencies is—time and time again these agencies make claims that are politically motivated, and for which individual officers feel pressured to toe the line. No matter how many times the truth comes out, the agencies seem to face no consequences.
