This post reveals that Eliot Higgins early work on Syria (operating name Brown Moses) often involved him using al-Nusra Front (al-Qaeda in Syria) video in order to 'prove' criminality on the part of the Syrian government. The entire barrel bombs narrative originated through early video that 'couch-potato' Higgins 'supposedly' found online...... video that was filmed by al-Nusra Front. Link here to the original videos:Higgins worked on the early and mid 2013 Syrian chemical weapons attacks with Dr. Igor Sutyagin of the Whitehall firm RUSI. Elliot provided the al-Qaeda supplied video and Sutyagin did the analysis and conducted various media appearances explaining its origins. These 'attacks' have been debunked by researchers as likely false flags. Hence, one of the main reasons the British government had trouble gaining public support for establishing a No Fly Zone/bombing campaign against Syria in 2013.
The Higgins/Sutyagin team popped up again in early July 2014, two weeks before the MH-17 shootdown when Bellingcat first went online. Bellingcats first ever official post was on July 5th, 2014. Link here:
The main propaganda roll out for the 2013 Syrian chemical weapons attacks was also conducted by Michael Weiss, James Miller and Scott Lucas (EAWorldView) on behalf of the Atlantic Council/MI5. They used the early spring attacks as a build up to the larger one in August 2013.

Today, University of Birmingham Professor Scott Lucas is one of the main defenders/promoters of the White Helmets in the UK. I put together a post this past week showing that one of his primary sources for video is SMART News Agency which is an FSA (terrorist groups affiliated) propaganda outlet that was first financed by the European Endowment for Democracy.

Recently Michael Weiss and James Miller have been outed by George Eliason and Consortium News as the people behind PropOrNot which has been the main player behind the Washington Post (CIA) roll out of the fake news/censorship agenda. This is also tied into Ukraine and the propaganda outlet Stop Fake, as well as Anne Applebaum of the Washington Post and The Economist, as revealed at the links below:
