The Nerve Agent Attack that Did Not Occur:  Analysis of the Times and Locations of Critical Events in the Alleged Nerve Agent Attack

at 7 AM on April 4, 2017 in Khan Sheikhoun, Syria

Summary of Findings

This analysis contains a detailed description of the times and locations of critical events in the alleged nerve agent attack of April 4, 2017 in Khan Shaykhun, Syria – assuming that the White House Intelligence Report (WHR) issued on April 11, 2017 correctly identified the alleged sarin release site.

Analysis using weather data from the time of the attack shows that a small hamlet about 300 m to the east southeast of the crater could be the only location affected by the alleged nerve agent release.  Video data of suffocating and dead victims lying on the ground shows a different location from the predicted sarin dispersal site if it had been correctly identified by the White House.

The conclusion is that the nerve agent attack described in the White House Intelligence Report did not occur as claimed.  There may well have been mass casualties from some kind of poisoning event, but that event was not the one described by the WHR.

The findings of this expanded analysis can serve two important purposes:

  1. It shows exactly what needs to be determined in an international investigation of this alleged atrocity.

In particular, if an international investigation can determine where casualties from the nerve agent attack lived, it will confirm that the findings reported by the White House Report are incompatible with its own cited data.

  1. It also establishes that the White House Report did not utilize simple and widely agreed upon intelligence analysis procedures to determine its conclusions.

This raises troubling questions about how the US political and military leadership determined that the Syrian government was responsible for the alleged attack.  It is particularly of concern that the White House Report presented itself as a report with “high confidence” findings and that numerous high-level officials in the US government have confirmed their belief that the report was correct and executed to a standard of high confidence.

    Other than those who frequent alternative media like SST who else cares about facts that Prof. Postol brings to attention? Not those who get their “information” from Rachel Maddow or Wolf Blitzer or David Ignatius or Tom Friedman.

  2. Philippe says:

    French FM says he will produce a “proof” in “a matter of days” on the gvt responsability.
    « C’est une question de jours, mais nous apporterons la preuve que le régime a bien organisé ces frappes avec des armes chimiques. J’exprime une conviction, dans quelques jours je pourrai vous apporter des preuves », a déclaré le chef de la diplomatie française
    (Informing, not endorsing, indeed… I do remember vividly (& shamefully) the declaration of Fabius, our former FM on Al Nosra doing ” a very good job” in Syria…)

  3. Old Microbiologist says:

    Well, they have had over a week to produce new videos and photographs and to dummy up some biological samples. Really, I am appalled at the amateurish production to date of the propaganda. If this is what the current crop of PSYOP (now MISO) officers or Hollywood for that matter, can do we are in big trouble. You would think with trillions of dollars being pumped into the military they could do better than this. Although if La La Land is the best they can do then maybe this is the way it is now and the bar is just very low now. What scares me is that Trump or his advisors actually believe this tripe.

  4. pmr9 says:

    Boris Johnson stated in the House of Commons yesterday (
    “We know from shell fragments in the crater that sarin had not only been used, but that it was sarin carrying the specific chemical signature of sarin used by the Assad regime.”
    I think the most likely interpretation of this is that Porton Down has matched the chemical profile of the samples they were given (purportedly from Khan Sheikhoun) to the ones they analysed from Ghouta in 2013. Of course all this establishes is that the perpetrators of Ghouta and Khan Sheikhoun had access to the same supply of kitchen sarin. I don’t think Johnson means that the KS sarin has been compared with the sarin precursor DF destroyed on the MV Cape Ray: the UK government isn’t supposed to have access to OPCW’s data on the chemical profiling of this material, so Johnson wouldn’t have been allowed to use it in a statement.
    The hole they have now dug themselves into is that now they have admitted that environmental samples were passed to Porton Down, we can bring pressure on them to publish a detailed chemical profile that can be compared with the known synthetic pathway used for Syrian military stocks.

  5. To whon did Professor Postal send his report? I ask because I want to know all the people to whom I can send a copy of the report, people in Congress who could possibly care about the truth. I am not sure there are many people left who do care about the truth since to some the truth is whatever they want to think it is.
    I just get so frustrated that so many supposedly bright and in-the-know people simply spout whatever someone has told them is true without looking into the facts for themselves.

  6. Jonathan says:

    The logistics of nerve agent chemical weapons deserve some scrutiny since (according to published information) they are either stored as binary precursors, then mixed and poured into the munitions shortly before deployment, or, like the M687 artillery shell, each precursor is poured into separate volumes divided by a rupturable barrier so that they mix and react in flight. This is the difference between a binary weapon and a binary munition.
    This is comparatively easy to do with a shell because of the considerable linear and angular accelerations that it undergoes. Conversely, a bomb or rocket is much harder due to the significantly reduced energy input. A rocket would suffer much more, since any mechanical mixer would necessarily compromise its range and/or payload.
    The implications are that one needs a significant number of mixing and filling facilities in as many locations as the General Staff regard necessary. This would explain the multiplicity of locations that were seen to by the decommissioning organization.
    Now imagine each facility. Firstly, it must be safe, which is no small task. Secondly, it must operate as quickly and efficiently as possible since wars don’t wait for anyone.
    So how to do it? This is where I can only speculate. Batch filling in a sealed environment by heavily protected operators, then a neutralizing washdown appears at least feasible and the appropriate technology. In addition there would be bulk tanks, metering devices (I suppose buckets and scales are at least possible), mixers, filling devices and of course heavy lifting equipment.
    Apologies if I’m stating the obvious, but deploying these things is way more complex than the simple logistics of explosive munitions; their storage life demands it and the result is that forensic investigation ought to be entirely obvious if the airbase was guilty as charged.

  7. Marko says:

    Profiling doesn’t help much , if at all. Both sides have access to whatever flavor of sarin they want , if they’ve got the cash.
    It would be a miracle if 95% of Assad’s stockpile was actually located and destroyed. They destroyed 1300-plus tons , so even just 5% would be ~ 65 tons that are still floating around , and sarin was a major fraction of Assad’s original stock.
    From Foreign Policy (9-17-16 ) “How the Islamic State Seized a Chemical Weapons Stockpile “:
    “( Dec. 2012 )….Within a day, the combined jihadi forces had broken through the lines of the Syrian Army. Shortly after, Regiment 111 was fully under jihadi control. They found large stocks of weapons, ammunition and, to their surprise, chemical agents. They were, according to Abu Ahmad, mainly barrels filled with chlorine, sarin, and mustard gas.
    What followed was the distribution of the war spoils. Everybody took some ammunition and weapons. But only the Nusra Front seized the chemical weapons. Abu Ahmad watched as the al Qaeda affiliate called in 10 large cargo trucks, loaded 15 containers with chlorine and sarin gas, and drove them away to an unknown destination. He did not see what happened to the mustard gas…..”
    Then there’s the Turkey ratline , which routed Libya’s old stuff ( via Benghazi ) into Syria during HRC’s day in the sun , as well as new global black-market goodies today.
    The common story , repeated endlessly by all of the MSM and far too many in the alt-media , is that Assad surely has a secret stash , and only he could have the “good stuff” , or the expertise to use it , or the weapons to deliver it , etc. It’s all BS.
    Right now some of the most sophisticated commandos on the planet
    ( backed by some of the biggest piles of money ) are embedded with tribes of head-choppers. If a job – any job – is important enough to the guys that sign the checks , the head-choppers – given time – can and will get it done.

  8. ex-PFC Chuck says:

    I’m shocked. Shocked!

  9. John_Frank says:

    In his statement to the House, the Minister references a crater. Has anyone asked him where this crater is specifically located? Is it the same crater that Professor Postol has been using to underpin his analysis? Thanks.

  10. Marko says:

    You’re stating the obvious for using CWs as WMDs , not as weapons of terror and/or as the foci of false-flag extravaganzas.
    Sarin attacks over the last few years have been pretty effective as false-flag events , always generating the hyberbolic demonization of Assad that’s designed to push the U.S. / the West deeper into the conflict. This last one , with Ivanka calling the shots , drew blood for the first time , though limited to “only” 5 dozen Tomahawks.
    Would the outcome have been different if killing efficiency was somehow doubled ? Impossible to know ? No. Ask yourself the same question about the Japan subway sarin attacks. What if they had managed to kill 24 instead of only 12 ? Meaningless , right ? They terrorized thousands with only 12 deaths ( as they would have with 6 or 24 ), and that was the point. Their high-tech delivery vehicle and launch mechanism ? A zip-lock bag full of sarin that they punctured with their umbrella tip just before they hopped off the subway. And half-assed sarin is good enough for government-overthrow work. A bonus is that your unreacted DF binary component is also a nerve agent , its just not as potent as sarin.
    For the quantities used in Syria , a production lab is anywhere you want it to be. You fill your binary artillery shells at your leisure and store them. For bombs or rockets , you pre-mix and fill them with unitary sarin and plan to use up those munitions within a month or two or three. Frankly , that will probably mean one or two munitions , if that. For one or two guys , this ain’t even a part-time job , it’s an occasional hobby.
    An ideal location ? and probably not coincidentally ? Those exit tunnels at the clinic of Dr. Pinpoint Pupils. Set up a big fan at the inside end to blow the fumes past your mix and fill operation and on to the outside exit. And that white , carbonate soil , wetted down with water a bit , will destroy any spilled sarin almost instantly. Yes , you should have a hazmat suit or two , but even without , there’s an alternative. Find one guy who’s reasonably intelligent and has a bit of MacGyver in him. He’ll make it work , and live to tell the others how he does it.
    Don’t believe the MSM bull. This ain’t brain surgery.

    I’m shocked! Shocked! (Casablanca)

  12. johnf says:

    “French FM says he will produce a “proof” in “a matter of days” on the gvt responsability.”
    Let’s face it, he has to produce his “proof” in “a matter of days”, because he’s going to be kicked out of office in “a matter of days.” But since he already knows that evidence will provide “proof” of “government responsibility” – why doesn’t he release it now?
    Just what blackmail material does the Borg hold on all these “politicians” to ensure they keep up their fervid warmongering even unto (political) death?

  13. Leonardo says:

    Yesterday the OPCW released a statement where it confirmed that the analysis on biological samples gathered from ten of the victims (7 injured people still under treatment and 3 dead) prove that they were subjected to the effects of sarin or a sarin-like substance.
    Interestingly, they don’t say anything about chlorine or any other “smelly” toxic agent.
    Here the press statement on the OPCW website:

  14. LeaNder says:

    This seems to get us back to David Habakkuk’s contribution. Or what felt like the core of his contribution. To the extend I recall his argument.
    Only scanned both his and Postel’s work that far. Without more seriously trying to “digest” matters. Meaning taking notes/excerpts.
    Seems OPCW’s evidence is connected to the three victims in Turkey.
    The bio-medical samples collected from three victims during their autopsy were analysed at two OPCW designated laboratories. The results of the analysis indicate that the victims were exposed to Sarin or a Sarin-like substance. Bio-medical samples from seven individuals undergoing treatment at hospitals were also analysed in two other OPCW designated laboratories. Similarly, the results of these analyses indicate exposure to Sarin or a Sarin-like substance.

  15. Kassandra says:

    Vaporware. Lying is quite some work, so they really need these days to come up with something which calms down the rising uneasiness among some MSM outlets.

    Syrian crater ‘too small’ for toll: ex-UN inspector Barton

  18. The Beaver says:

    Happy to join the fray, here comes the conspiracy theorists and fake propaganda:
    A senior military official says Israeli military intelligence estimates that Assad has “between one and three tons” of chemical weapons.
    He spoke on condition of anonymity under military briefing rules. The assessment was confirmed by two other defense officials.

    Yellow cake circa 2002, anyone 🙂

    “He says she says he said…”

  20. aleksandar says:

    Well, head of OPCW is a Turkish guy…..

  21. Mikey says:

    From the link you provided: “Former director of strategic technology in Australia’s Defence Intelligence Organisation Rod Barton said identifying the gas source was difficult while key questions remained unanswered about the type of munition or the number of bombs or craters.”
    The jihadists said there were 4 explosions, 3 were conventional weapons, 1 was gas. “01:47 – “Syrian airstrikes targeted Khan Sheikoun with four rockets, one of them contained chemical gas, it hit a residential area in the northern side of the city. Since the chemical rocket incident until now, the Syrian airforce won’t stop hovering over the city and shelling it.” ”
    Video of area hit:

  22. John_Frank says:

    At the end of the linked article, we are told:

    “He [Mr Barton] said he suspected Syria was behind the attacks and blaming the rebels was not credible. “First of all, sarin is not easy to make in any quantity. I’m not saying that IS (Islamic State) or other rebels haven’t made the gas, and they have made mustard gas, but I doubt whether they could make it in any quantity,’’ he said.”

    As to the crater size at the alleged release point as shown in the open source video:

    Yesterday Mr Barton, who was part of a team that uncovered Iraq’s biological warfare program, said authorities needed evidence of the size and type of the munition used and the chemical signature of the gas.
    Syria pledged to destroy all its chemical weapons after facing threats of military action by the US after a rocket attack with sarin gas that left more than 1000 dead in Damascus in 2013. Mr Barton said after these attacks, inspectors found parts of the rockets designed to carry the chemicals.
    “The warhead was a Syrian design but in this case we don’t know whether rockets were used. Nothing has been said,’’ Mr Barton said.
    He raised questions about the crater that had been shown as the impact point for the sarin gas rocket in the latest attack.
    “To kill the number of people killed there would require more than one little rocket. You can see there is a crater in the road but that looks like it is from a small rocket that could only carry a couple of litres,” he said.
    Mr Barton said pieces of the munition usually were left lying around because the device only had to burst open a container and disperse the gas, not cause a blast.”

    Where exactly was the release point?
    While administration officials talked about a crater in the background briefing as potentially being the release point, within the context of refuting the Russian narrative, as Professor Postol acknowledges, that is an assumption.
    What additional information will the various intelligence agencies and Defense Departments involved provide the OPCW fact finding mission?
    (Reference has been made to a video of the attack as conducted by the Syrian Arab Armed Forces, as well as statements made by US Army officials. Will that information find its way into the hands of the OPCW fact finding mission?)
    Will it be necessary for a team of experts from the OPCW to visit the area to determine the release point?

  23. Send it to Tulsi Gabbard.

  24. Chris Chuba says:

    Only Al Qaeda and other Syrian rebel supporters have been to Khan Shaykhun, correct? So this means that every single bit of forensic evidence and accounts have come exclusively from this group. There are no first person accounts from international organizations or external countries. Am I missing something, the doctors who treated the people near the site, are they all Syrians and/or Turks or do ‘Doctors without Borders’ have a presence there (doubt it).
    This is worth mentioning, the MSM might believe that the White Helmets are like the Red Crescent but they are not. They are rebel supporters and only operate in rebel / Al Qaeda territory.
    The Pentagon claims to have captured SIGINT radio traffic between the Strike fighter and air traffic controller proving that it was a chemical attack. Is there any valid reason why they cannot release the transcripts?
    I cannot think of any scenario how releasing transcripts would compromise our Intelligence sources.
    1. Written transcripts do not convey any indication on how it was obtained. It is not like a recording that can be analyzed.
    2. We provided transcripts in previous situations like the KAL-007 incident. Hmm… maybe a bad example, we edited the transcripts and the tape down to 8 minutes to be intentionally misleading before presenting them before the U.N. But in any case, we have released radio intercepts before.
    3. What technology would transcripts divulge that has not already been divulged by announcing the existence of radio intercepts? If the Syrians encrypted radio traffic, we have already told them that we can decrypt it even if we never release transcripts.
    Obviously, I do not believe that we have incriminating transcripts but I am curious if there is any legitimate case for them to not do so.

  25. Yeah, Right says:

    Reminds me of a 1941 prediction about the USSR: we only need to kick in the door and the entire rotten ediface will fall down.
    As predictions go it wasn’t entirely accurate. I doubt that this one is either. The USA has more forces, but they are scattered around the world. Russia has fewer forces, but they aren’t far-flung.

  26. Marko says:

    You can pretty much bet that the environmental samples from the impact crater will test positive for sarin consistent with Assad’s stockpile. That will be the cherry on top for another Oscar-deserving production.
    Those dead from sarin were not “exposed” , they were murdered. Aside from the 20 or so from a single family , it appears that the bulk of the dead were not residents :
    ” No one knows for sure the exact death toll, because some of the dead were refugees from the neighbouring province of Hama who sought shelter here, and their relatives took them home for burial.” ( For “refugees” , read “captives”. )
    The now-rockstar “man with twins” who lost 19 , 20 , 22 , or 25 family members , depending on who was counting , is named Abdul Hamid al-Yousef , and is shown here ( in checked shirt ) with Erdogan at the hospital in Turkey:
    To me , he appears awfully similar to the guy against the wall at the back of the room in this earlier picture depicting one of the regular McCain/terrorists strategy sessions :
    If that is Mr. Man-with-Twins with McCain , I think he’s going to be one very wealthy man when this is all over with.

  27. b says:

    I have checked and listed on my site all early news reports of the incident. All, including the doctors in Turkey who received first casualties, only spoke of chlorine.
    There is no evidence (video etc) of symptoms of the casualties or first responder that is more consistent with sarin than chlorine.
    The only one who talked of sarin was an al-Qaeda “doctor” who had been in court in Britain for abducting journalists in Syria. He releaseda prepared propaganda video.
    That was then taken up by Turkish officials but without any evidence. The current head of the OPCW is a Turkish (NATO) diplomat.

  28. Gen Dau says:

    In the midst of Theodore Postol’s well-done and persuasive analysis published above, one point remains a mystery. The weather info for April 4 has the wind direction at 6:00 a.m. to be “SE.” This means the wind was blowing from SE toward the NW. But Prof. Postal writes that the wind must have carried the gas across a field and toward a hamlet to the SE. I don’t understand. Why didn’t the wind carry the gas toward the NW? The same directionality or movement INTO the wind is shown by yellow arrows drawn on some of the photos. For 9:00 as well: the chart says the wind was from the E, which means the wind was traveling toward the W. But the yellow arrows on the photos point toward the E, not the W. Prima facie things seem to be the reverse of what they should be. Could someone please explain this apparent contradiction? Thanks!

  29. hans says:

    The lie of Assad’s poison gas attack has been cemented into what passes for a fact nowadays, an alt-fact, if you will. All attempts to correct the record so far have come to nothing – the Borg narrative stands. Subsequent events have smothered it. Future imbecilities will bury it deeper.
    One has to wonder what the Russians and Chinese make of this.

  30. Gen Dau says:

    I hope Professor Postol will compare the time scheme he established for the action in the White Hat videos with the new timeline that Assad has revealed: ‘”First of all, we don’t know if the site that we attacked that day half an hour before noon, about 11:30, was a chemical warehouse or depot or anything like this. And their story said that the attack happened at 6, 6:30 in the morning. We didn’t launch any attack at that time. So, you have two possibilities: the first one is that there was an attack at lunch time or at about 11:30. The other possibility that we believe in is that it was a false flag, there was no attack,” the president explained.’
    I believe that Prof. Postol puts the White Hat Performance at somewhat after 7 a.m. The shadows are quite long. If so, this would be about 4 hours before the Syrian bombing attack. Perhaps, as Assad asserts, there really was no gas leakage from a bombed warehouse and it was all theater. This would also jibe with the theory that there was no sarin used and that traces of sarin were added later (in Turkey?) to the bodies. If so, who are the poor dead people? Are they some of the group of more than 200 people who were said to have been kidnaped by Al Nusra from a nearby village a couple of days before the alleged CW attack?

  31. LeaNder says:

    James, yes, developments in Turkey makes one feel highly uncomfortable. Triggers Niemüller’s “First they came” … vaguely.
    To the extend I understood David’s argument, it seemed to be that the Turkish type of evidence wouldn’t be definitive anyway: evidence from the human body versus evidence collected directly in the environment. Where the agent no doubt must have left traces. I don’t have the expertise in many of the field necessary to grasp matters.
    If i leave out his attention to the importance of–forget the precise term–documentation of who delivered what evidence and to whom…
    Fact is, without going back to check. I assume that the bits of the press release that made it into the news, would suggest to average audience. Why not me? OK it’s proven.
    … Borg, or simply superficial treatment of the press release to the extend it reached me in news? I wouldn’t want to be the judge on that issue.

  32. hemeantwell says:

    I’d encourage you not to underestimate the corrosive potential of propaganda-exposing sites such as this during a period when elites are suffering from a serious legitimacy deficit. Over the past year I’ve seen many people I know go from trusting loyalists to be much more willing to suspend belief and dangerously ask cui bono?. In addition, the surprising formation of a Trump-HRC alliance around this farce has been eye-opening. As long as the neocons don’t manage to significantly escalate on some front — and there are many — the truth will have an increasing impact.

  33. Thomas says:

    “One has to wonder what the Russians and Chinese make of this.”
    The American Elite are pathologically insane, so be prepared and ready for the next strategically stupid move.

  34. Mikey says:

    Think you missed my point, which is, there is no way that a single 122mm rocket can deliver ‘hundreds of kilograms’ of Sarin. Professor Postol estimated the rocket section in the crater could contain about 10L, which is about 10KG of Sarin. Ten rockets could deliver about 100KG, but there weren’t ten. By the jihadists own admission only four rockets were fired that morning and only one released gas.

  35. Mikey says:

    Can’t explain the contradiction.
    This video of the attack shows the dust clouds relatively stationary at ground level and drifting in the direction of the sun as the dust rises.
    There also is a white cloud that doesn’t seem to be rising (to the right of the mosque on the right side of the video).

  36. optimax says:

    The msm is using Alex Jones to discount the idea Assad didn’t do it. Jones is a wacko that sometimes gets the story right but calling Newton a staged event is reprehensible. The msm ignores the MIT professor and promotes the Israeli talking point Assad did it because he felt he could get away with it since he was beating ISIS and US had backed away from regime change. In other words, Assad is a self-destructive moron. A large percentage of Americans have heads buried in their smart phones watching some kid throw a baseball at his fathers nuts and think they are the most exceptional people earth has grown.

  37. Pundita says:

    My guess would be that Dr Postol is reading the comments here in response to his assessments but why not put your question directly to him? He’s published his email address in all his assessments but here it is again:
    I’d say he’d be willing to reply to any reasonable question put to him about his analyses of the chemical incident.

  38. Marko says:

    This is where Postol’s analysis is weak , IMO , and not even because he may have flipped the wind direction 180 degrees.
    Boaters know that winds less than 5 mph are negligible , and are often referred to as “light and variable”. In town that sits in a bowl like Khan Sheikhoun , other impacts on air flows could have overwhelmed the 3 or 4 mph winds that were supposed to have been present , with different effects in different locales.
    He should have used a pair of circles – a pair to bracket uncertainty in gas cloud velocity – rather than a pie slice to depict the possible area impacted , at least for the first hour or two.
    The hamlet is a long ways off in one direction , but if you don’t restrict yourself in that regard , the potential for early impacts on residential housing goes way up.
    The Guardian reporter visited the damn house where two dozen people died – couldn’t he at least disclose the ballpark location of that sucker ?

  39. Tigermoth says:

    Mr. Postal misinterpreted the wind direction he has posted this updated assessment:
    With Error Fixed, Evidence Against ‘Sarin Attack’ Remains Convincing
    Posted on Apr 21, 2017
    By Theodore A. Postol
    “In my report published April 19 on Truthdig, I misinterpreted the wind-direction convention, resulting in my estimates of plume directions being exactly 180 degrees off. This article corrects that error and provides important new analytic results that follow from correction of that error.
    When the error in wind direction is corrected, the conclusion is that if there was a significant sarin release at the crater as alleged by the White House Intelligence Report (WHR) issued April 11, the immediate result would have been significant casualties immediately adjacent to the dispersion crater.”
    “…As can be seen by the corrected wind patterns in the labeled photographs below, the predicted direction of the sarin plume would take it immediately into a heavily populated area.”
    “…In addition, the crater area where the sarin release was supposed to have occurred was close enough to the densely populated downwind area that significant amounts of sarin that would have fallen near the crater during the initial aerosol release would have resulted in a persistent plume of toxic sarin being carried into this populated area as the liquid on the ground near the crater evaporated during the day.
    The close proximity to the crater would have certainly led to high casualties within the populated area…”
