Does histiocytoma dog removal cost international chemical watchdog cherry-pick evidence to confirm a bias open parachute

Multinational bodies, like the organisation for prohibition of chemical weapons (OPCW) usually have authority and appearance of objectivity because of their histiocytoma dog removal cost international and representative nature. But I have been disappointed with some of the OPCW histiocytoma dog removal cost reports because they relied on hearsay and appeared to suffer histiocytoma dog removal cost bias. They also usually lack transparency and suffer from lack of histiocytoma dog removal cost data. I have discussed some of this in my articles another histiocytoma dog removal cost shonky OPCW chemical incident report on syria and OPCW on histiocytoma dog removal cost salisbury poisoning – one step forward, two back?

It is probably inevitable that a theoretically objective or non-partisan organisation will, in practice, be influenced by political and geopolitical interests. Even so, I am shocked to discover that the OPCW may have histiocytoma dog removal cost resorted to cherry-picking evidence for their final report of the OPCW fact-finding mission (FFM) on the alleged chemical attack in douma on 7 april histiocytoma dog removal cost 2018, released on 1 march 2019.

These unidentified experts produced a different conclusion to that reached histiocytoma dog removal cost by the FFM engineering subteam as described in a leaked histiocytoma dog removal cost dcouyment from the subgroup ( engineering-assessment-of-two-cylinders-observed-at-the-douma-incident-27-february-2019-1). That, in itself, is not surprising – consider how in criminal cases prosecutors and defence can produce histiocytoma dog removal cost their own experts to make completely opposite arguments. But the OPCW should have at the very least acknowledged histiocytoma dog removal cost the two different conclusions from the two different groups. They should also have given more weight to the conclusions histiocytoma dog removal cost of the own subteam who were involved in the initial histiocytoma dog removal cost investigations rather than the contracted experts who relied only on histiocytoma dog removal cost second-hand data (and were possibly given a more limited mandate).

The two engineering reports relate to these chlorine gas cylinders. Whereas the original fact-finding mission engineering subteam concluded that the chlorine gas cylinders histiocytoma dog removal cost had most probably been manually placed at the scene the histiocytoma dog removal cost anonymous experts later contracted by the OPCW appear to favour histiocytoma dog removal cost an explanation involving delivery by an aircraft.

I can understand how different assessment teams can come to histiocytoma dog removal cost different conclusions and it could well be that the anonymous histiocytoma dog removal cost contracted experts were asked to assume that the cylinders had histiocytoma dog removal cost been dropped and to model possible trajectories and dmagge. In contrast the intial FFM engineering team considered alternative hypotheses histiocytoma dog removal cost as well as air-dropped cylinders and specifically proposed the alternatives in their report.

Such modelling and conlcusions can’t help but involve a degree of speculation so it histiocytoma dog removal cost does not concern me that different conclusions were drawn. But I am very concerned that the OPCW final report histiocytoma dog removal cost ignored the findings of their own FFM engineering subteam. This indicates a degree of bias which should be unacceptable histiocytoma dog removal cost for such an international body.

“the new information we have removes all doubt that the histiocytoma dog removal cost organization has been hijacked at the top by france, UK and the US. We have no doubt that most OPCW staff continue to histiocytoma dog removal cost do their jobs professionally, and that some who are uneasy about the direction that histiocytoma dog removal cost the organization has taken nevertheless wish to protect its reputation. However what is at stake here is more than the histiocytoma dog removal cost reputation of the organization: the staged incident in douma provoked a missile attack by histiocytoma dog removal cost the US, UK and france on 14 april 2018 that could have histiocytoma dog removal cost led to all-out war.
