Syria: Chemical Weapons Videos Uploaded Before Attack! (Video)

By Susan Duclos

Prison Planet has found a very strange occurrence with videos purported to be proof of Syrian chemical attacks. The attacks were reported to have happened on August 21, 2013, yet in 159 instances, the videos were uploaded to YouTube on August 20, 2013.

The first thing that came to mind was there is a time difference between countries, but the article addresses that as well with the following:

The time stamp attributed to uploaded videos applies to the country in which they were uploaded, meaning that the videos were uploaded in Syria on August 20th, which is seemingly impossible given that the attack took place in the early hours of the 21st. The only way the videos could display as being uploaded on the 20th was if they were uploaded in America, which is on an earlier time zone.

The Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Aleksandr Lukashevich claims this shows evidence  that the chemical attacks were "pre-planned."

"We’re getting more new evidence that this criminal act was of a provocative nature,” he told RT. “In particular, there are reports circulating on the Internet, in particular that the materials of the incident and accusations against government troops had been posted for several hours before the so-called attack. Thus, it was a pre-planned action."

The playlist of videos entitled ‘Alleged Chemical Attack in Eastern Ghouta August 21st 2013‘  were all uploaded on August 20, 2013.

How does footage of an attack get uploaded before the attack happened?

The unanswered question as to how footage showing victims of an attack that occurred on August 21 was uploaded to YouTube on August 20 is in addition to doubts cast about the veracity of the videos by several chemical weapons experts. 
Paula Vanninen of the Finnish Institute for Verification of the Chemical Weapons Convention questions the behavior of those seen handling the victims in the video footage. “At the moment, I am not totally convinced because the people that are helping them are without any protective clothing and without any respirators….In a real case, they would also be contaminated and would also be having symptoms,” he stated.

The video below is an example of one of those videos and if you click the URL of the video, you can see the date it was uploaded does not match the the date media reported the attack occurred.
