INVESTIGATING SARIN GAS USED IN SYRIA PART 1)
TEHRAN (FNA)- American Journalist and Researcher Jeffrey Silverman said that chemical weapons used by rebels in Syria were transferred by sea from Georgia’s US-controlled Laboratory, in a new revelation that proves chemical attacks in Syria are committed by foreign-backed militants.
Jeffrey Silverman said in an interview with Veterans Today website that US Department of Defense operates a network of labs in Georgia and that they have an offensive capacity.
On August 27, 2013 the famous American political investigator and principal editor of the ex-US State Department and intelligence service publication Veterans Today, Gordon Duff, published an article entitled “US Contractors Cited for Syrian Chemical Attacks,” and a video entitled “Syrian Gas Attack Proof Syrian Army Has No Involvement.”
The commentary to the video states, “The video which you are watching right now was filmed in Syria and shows the chemical weapons which were sent from Georgia. The US is standing behind all this. Former US Senator Richard Lugar is the person whose assistance made it possible to transport weapons from Georgia via Turkey into Syria, with the support of the United States and Turkey… A US chemical weapons program supplies the Syrian rebels with weapons of mass destruction. A team of investigators has determined that chemical weapons were supplied from this region, which is under US control. They followed the trail of these chemical weapons to the Georgian Republic. Turkish Army subdivisions transported them to Al-Qaeda terrorists operating in Syrian territory.
Journalists Jeffrey Silverman and Lika Moshiashvili are credited with having discovered the secret and illegal operations taking place in the US-controlled Central Reference Laboratory (CPHRL) in the Tbilisi suburb the Alekseevka Settlement.”
In another context Silverman said, “The truth will soon be exposed as to why so much money (was spent) on this lab, 300 million dollars in total, and how the US, Turkey and Saudi Arabia have used Georgia to supply chemical and conventional weapons to terrorists … basically that Al-Qaeda is America’s best friend. Turkey is even the main subcontractor to the construction of the bio lab here in Tbilisi. That is not a happenstance!”
Silverman said that Gordon Duff provided him with the information that prove chemical weapons were transported into Syria from Georgia, and added that this information also confirmed by his own sources. “He stated, Based on reliable sources, that chemical weapons were being transferred by sea from Georgia to Syria. They have human intelligence sources who find and track such materials…”
“This is a team of American veterans who found out that the supply of chemical weapons in Syria was performed from outside, via Turkey,” Silverman added.

The presence in Georgia of a US military bio-laboratory remains an obstacle to the development of economic ties with Russia. This came as a statement by head of Rospotrebnadzor Gennady Onishchenko. In his opinion, the US military structures located on the Georgian territory are not controlled by the authorities of the Republic and are engaged in activities prohibited by conventions in the field of biology.
The Lugar Research Center is named among the most secret objects in Georgia. This center was built for the US money within the space of 5 years, and it immediately became surrounded by legends. Locals were wondering: Why does America need to allocate $ 270 million for building a laboratory in another country? Many suspect that the US spent this money for a good reason. One of the most wide-spread assumptions is that the Americans might produce biological and chemical weapons in Georgia. The great interest of the US in this institution on the Georgian territory is proved by the rank of the guests, who participated in the official opening of the center. Thus, the event was visited by Assistant Secretary of Defense for Nuclear, Chemical and Biological Defense Programs Andrew Weber. Half of the staff of the research center consists of military specialists. In general, such a scrupulous attention on the part of the USA cannot but worry the Georgian population, former Minister of State Security of Georgia Valery Khaburdzaniya says.
“This does not enjoy the confidence of the population, because the Americans used not to show any interest in the Georgian economy, but suddenly they got interested in some kind of biological strains and are carrying out some secret operations. The fact that servicemen are working there is suspicious. It is still unknown, why servicemen are working at a civilian facility”.
All this only generates rumors: the spread of avian flu in 2011, epidemic of measles at the end of 2012, hog cholera in 2013. Residents of Georgia associate all misfortunes with the existence of the laboratory. Some mass media have even released information that the Americans were testing some viruses on the Georgian population. Today, almost no one believes the official version that the Research Center is monitoring the epidemiological situation in the Republic, Georgian political analyst Archil Chkoidze says.
“My father lives in a village. And I can say responsibly: hundreds of pigs owned by the local population die every year. And the cause of death is this very virus, which, as they say in the government, was not registered in Georgia for several years. So, I believe that we must study the origin of this virus. And it is preferable that we do it in cooperation with Russian specialists. Because both of us should know, where does this virus come from”.
Archil Chkoidze is even more suspicious of the statement of Director of the mysterious laboratory Giya Kamkamidze about the fact that African hog cholera was not registered in the country for 6 years now.
It is noteworthy that the laboratory in Georgia has supplemented the network of such institutions built by the Americans in a number of European countries, as well as in Thailand, Egypt, Kenya and other regions of the world. And it is a dark military secret, whether this network has some kind of a general purpose, or each facility solves its own specific tasks.
