A few interesting things about the #Skripal briefing:
Apparently the parfume bottle was a strange Nina Ricci fake. It's not particular clear how to apply a gel with it. The two suspects had a room in the CityStay Hotel near Bow Road. The investigators took samples on 4th May (one month after the suspects left). Two samples had harmless traces of Novichok. "Just to be sure" they took new samples from the same spots and found nothing.

Once again the NYT published a blatant propaganda piece using a lot of details found by independent investigators and tries to reverse the findings in a sometimes self-contradicting way. DISMISS: Of course, NYT M.Browne neither mentions any of the witness accounts nor that #Douma has already "fallen". Most of the Jaish al Islam activists already left or jumped into busses the next day.

It's actually interesting to see how @EliotHiggins use deception to lie to his audience in Berlin at the Atlantic Counsil 360/OS. On Day1 he presented his prove for the Russian destruction of a hospital in Sarmeen. Start at 25:30min:
facebook.com/rapplerdotcom/… First of all, he presents a video from the "Guardien" that is actually the last video of the "Sarmeen Coordina" Al Nusra/ White Helmets Motii Jalal & Muawyia Aga who are known for their participation even in the killing of detainees.

For the 2nd time after the #Douma nonsense Eliot Higgins plays dumb to appear smart. Let's see how the psychological in depth analysis applies: Either they recreated it or the creation was some kind of hell canon theme variation or they used some old and previously dropped modifications. In fact no image is known of an helicopter dropping yellow cylinders and only very few presented cylinders show those modifications.
