Falling Skies: Poking Holes in the Syria Barrel Bomb and White Helmets Propaganda Narratives Disseminated by Eliot Higgins and Bellingcat
In May 2015 the following linked video featuring White Helmets lead propaganda disseminator Hadi Abdallah (48 sec mark) was uploaded to You Tube. It features Hadi Abdallah working alongside al-Nusra Front (al-Qaeda in Syria Islamic jihadists) who were elements of the FSA (Free Syrian Army). At that time the terrorists were attacking the besieged hospital in Jisr Al Shughour and had over 200 Syrian soldiers trapped alongside over 100 Syrian civilians, including dozens of medical staff. This story never made the news in western countries, it was covered up, however it was hugely covered in Syria and had the entire countries attention at the time of its occurrence. At the end of the siege, the FSA terrorists shot those who tried to escape, then exploded tunnel bombs under the hospital and only around 100 people made it out alive.
The highly revealing video below shows barrels being dropped by the Syrian Airforce to the trapped troops and civilians. The video reveals that al-Nusra Front (al-Qaeda in Syria) terrorists working alongside the White Helmets lead cameraman and propagandist Hadi Abdallah capture the barrels of food and admit to doing such on camera. They also admit to laying siege to the hospital and being mujahideen (Islamic jihadists). A rough transcript of their conversation is included below in order to clarify their roles in the hospital siege:
This video is particularly important and quite interesting for a few different reasons.
Reason 1) The video shows that the White Helmets lead cameraman Hadi Abdallah is clearly operating in collusion with the al-Nusra Front terrorists laying siege to the hospital where the massacre takes place.
Reason 2) The New York Times has recently published a story on Hadi Abdallah portraying him as a hero in the Syrian conflict. (Link to New York Times video and additional information on Hadi Abdallah including many other videos and images proving he works in collusion with terrorist groups fighting against the Syrian government and SAA.

Reason 3) It is notable that Eliot Higgins of Bellingcat previously used al-Nusra Front supplied videos to lay the groundwork for the "Barrel Bombs" narrative which appointed blame at the Assad led government while Higgins operated under the You Tube channel moniker of "Brown Moses" in 2013. His information was then disseminated by a number of propaganda outfits, many run by individuals affiliated with the Atlantic Council, Whitehall, RUSI and the British Foreign Office. These individuals and their propaganda outfits include Scott Lucas of EAWorldview, Michael Weiss of the Interpreter Mag and Daily Beast as well as James Miller of the Interpreter Mag/EAWorldview, Patrick Hilsman of ViceNews/Daily Beast, as well as Ben Nimmo of the The Atlantic Council's Digital Forensic Research Lab. Keep in mind that the Atlantic Council and Ben Nimmo are funded by EU governments and are also affiliated with The UK Foreign Office funded Integrity Initiative.
The fact the video above shows lead White Helmets propaganda disseminator Hadi Abdallah, who these individuals have promoted via their websites and used as a legitimate source, colluding with the terrorists that will soon after destroy the hospital and kill hundreds of people, brings into question the sourcing and use of video by these terrorists by Eliot Higgins/Bellingcat and the aforementioned individuals and organizations.

The following videos are archived from Eliot Higgins own channel that is still active today. The videos show jihadists that are clearly associated with al-Nusra Front (al-Qaeda in Syria) and they show obvious edits between when barrels are dropped and when explosions occur. Thus, there is no verifiable clear evidence from the videos that Eliot Higgins (aka Brown Moses) uploaded and shared at his channel. The editing makes suspect the claim by Higgins that the Syrian Arab Army actually used barrel bombs on civilian areas. Instead there is the words of the FSA/al-Nusra Front terrorists that Higgins attained the video material from for his uploads and personal analysis.
The video above brings into question Higgins sources, the nature of his reporting and his use of such videos to prove his case. The video and transcript from the linked video above clearly shows that the barrels being dropped by the hospital were filled with food and water products to aid the people in the hospital besieged by the terrorists.
Hadi Abdallah's and the terrorists own statements in the video incriminate themselves in the mass slaughter that was soon to take place. Yet, Higgins and the others have backed the White Helmets and the FSA while continually laying blame for various atrocities and chemical events on the Syrian government.

2nd Example: Underground tunnel bomb detonated by FSA/Al-Qaeda in Syria terrorists used by Eliot Higgins to promote himself as a reliable source for information on the Syrian war. Note portions of video were clearly filmed by the terrorists propaganda disseminators as they are walking and filming behind terror groups in the Bellingcat video. Once again this brings into question Eliot Higgins source material providers. It clearly appears that al-Qaeda is Bellingcat's main source for disseminated evidentiary material being used against the Syrian government.
Numerous other examples are available at the Brown Moses You Tube channel.
The following video from China's CGTN covered the siege and bombardment of the hospital in Jisr al-Shughour.
Screenshot for posterity in case video is censored by You Tube/Google:
Note that You Tube/Google (affiliated with the US government) includes note on video stating the Chinese government provides funding for the channel. Of course this is conducted by You Tube to attempt to lessen credibility of the source. However, the video with Hadi Abdallah and the al-Qaeda terrorists above proves via their own words that the story revealed the CGTN video is the fact based real story of what happened at the Jisr al-Shughour hospital.
2nd note: Its also quite noteworthy that on numerous occasions western media and governments have portrayed the Syrian government as having bombed hospitals filled with civilians. It is quite telling that this event where terrorists blew up a hospital with hundreds of people inside (as shown in the Chinese media video) was not covered at all by western media, humanitarian organizations and governments.
Interestingly, Scott Lucas of EAWorldview did cover the seige at the time, yet western media ignored it. Lucas's website states that 'rebels' (read FSA terrorists) dug a tunnel beneath the building and leaked news that they would detonate an underground bomb.

Reason 4) Note the last image and caption, and note that the New York Times hero Hadi Abdallah is also used as a source by University of Birmingham Professor Scott Lucas of EAWorldview. Now compare all of the above information with the lead video to this post which features the White Helmets lead cameraman/propaganda disseminator Hadi Abdallah working with those very same terrorists that killed all those people in that hospital. Now ask yourself why these western government affiliated propagandists are using this terrorist supplied information to make a case of atrocities and chemical attacks against the Syrian government. Then ask yourself if you can trust what the above mentioned western propagandists have reported in regards to "Barrel Bombs" and the real role of the White Helmets, and for that matter, Bellingcat itself. Is it possible it was always a psyop. I leave it to your discretion to ponder upon what these individuals are doing and why they are doing it.
Regarding the White Helmets and Hadi Abdallah, a massive trove of additional evidentiary material is available here for interested parties to more closely examine their actions and relationships with terrorist groups. Note: The majority of the Facebook images, videos and incriminating material was uploaded by the White Helmets, Hadi Abdallah and FSA terrorists themselves. I simply collated the evidence and placed it in one large archive to be used as an easy-access resource for others to examine.

Additional note: To this very day Patrick Hilsman and the aforementioned western propaganda disseminators are still attempting to convince the public that the White Helmets are the real Syrian Civil Defense and the Syrian government is a sinister entity.
