Independent Swiss Lab Says ‘BZ Toxin’ Used In Skripal Poisoning; US/UK-Produced, Not Russian

Somebody has some explaining to do… or did the Syrian airstrikes just ‘distract’ the citizenry from the reality surrounding the Skripal poisoning.

Remember how we were told my the politicians (not the scientists) that a deadly Novichok nerve agent – produced by Russia – was used in the attempted assassination of the Skripals? Remember the 50 questions (here and here) we had surrounding the ‘facts’ as Theresa May had laid them out? Ever wonder why, given how utterly deadly we were told this chemical was, the Skripals wondered around for a few hours after being ‘infected’ and then days later, survived with no chronic damage?

Well those doubts may well have just been answered as according to the independent Swiss state Spiez lab, the substance used on Sergei Skripal was an agent called BZ, which was never produced in Russia, but was in service in the US, UK, and other NATO states.

RT reports that Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said, citing the results of the examination conducted by a Swiss chemical lab that worked with the samples that London handed over to the Organisation for the Prohibition of the Chemical Weapons (OPCW), that Sergei Skripal, a former Russian double agent, and his daughter Yulia were poisoned with an incapacitating toxin known as 3-Quinuclidinyl benzilate or BZ.

The Swiss center sent the results to the OPCW.

However, the UN chemical watchdog limited itself only to confirming the formula of the substance used to poison the Skripals in its final report without mentioning anything about the other facts presented in the Swiss document, the Russian foreign minister added.

He went on to say that Moscow would ask the OPCW about its decision to not include any other information provided by the Swiss in its report.

On a side note, the Swiss lab is also an internationally recognized center of excellence in the field of the nuclear, biological, and chemical protection and is one of the five centers permanently authorized by the OPCW.

The Russian foreign minister said that London refused to answer dozens of “very specific” questions asked by Moscow about the Salisbury case, as well as to provide any substantial evidence that could shed light on the incident.

Instead, the UK accused Russia of failing to answer its own questions, he said, adding that, in fact, London did not ask any questions but wanted Moscow to admit that it was responsible for the delivery of the chemical agent to the UK.

But hey, who cares about any of that? Diplomats have been sent home, Putin has been anointed Hitler, and besides, what about those missiles in Syria?

  1. Spies operate in the covert world. They are not in the business to become famous. Why would Russia use toxins that would be traced back to them? The best covert operation is to succeed and make it look like someone else did it. Barry – whoever the hell he really is – provided Iran with nuclear weapons capabilities. Hillary and Barry provided Russia with 20% of OUR remaining uranium – used to make nuclear weapons. Who’s to say they didn’t slip a little poison into the mix too? Could have been “stolen” When the poison is identified follow the chain of custody and any reports of missing materials.
    The Clintons made millions from Russia. Barry told Putin “I will have more flexibility after the election” back in 2012. Barry’s National Security Adviser – Susan Rice – managed to put together a tidy little $40,000,000 fortune – “mostly from her dealings with Iran.” Russia – Iran and Syria are awful cozy aren’t they? Russia’s economy is based on oil sale prices – they kiss up to the oil producing countries – get the price of oil jacked up and we pay for it – so we are basically improving Russia’s economy every time we buy high priced middle east oil. We should have been independent of fossil fuel oils a long time ago. We have the technology – we have the desire to clean up the environment so why hasn’t it happened? OUR politicians have been bought and paid for. The likes of Hillary malign the rich – yet she whined about “being broke when they left the White House.” They still had Bill’s measely “$400,000 a year presidential salary – how many Americans dream of being that “broke”? After a short career as a Senator from New York and 1 term as Secretary of Take – Hillary sure is not broke anymore is she? As in all things follow the money – it will prove just how corrupt the “Bitch of Benghazi” really is. Look at who they made3 all those high paid speeches to – the very people she claimed she would protect you from. Do you really think those people paid the Clintons all that money so that the Clintons would fight them? In the previous administration everything was for sale to our enemies and anti-Americanism seemed to rule the day. When you look at the news today and the way it is presented anti-Americanism still has a stonghold in OUR country.
    When President trump said he wanted to Make America Great Again – the left was immediately against it. Why?
    When President trump said that he would put America and Americans first in all of his decisions – they were again against it. Why? We watched the Democrats sit on their hands during the State of The Union address. We even watched Senator Gutierez from Illinois storm out of the chamber apparently sickened by the chants of “USA….USA”. These people seem hell bent on destroying our country they need to be called to account and dealt with severely or Amerca as we know it is gone. They have been trying to repeal OUR 2nd Amendment rights for sometime. Now the loons in California have set their sights on OUR 1st Amendment Rights – Freedom of Speech. I find it funny that the very people marching and protesting for these rights to be taken away are so stupid that they do not realize that they will no longer be able to protest when the left has it’s way. BUT it is NOT funny what they are doing to the rest of us. We have to stand up and fight for what is OURS or we will lose it too.
