White Helmets founder James Le Mesurier may have been liquidated by intelligence agents upon the CIA’s instructions or with the agency’s direct participation, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad told Russia’s Rossiya-24 television on Thursday.

The Syrian president said he saw links between the death of Le Mesurier and the deaths of US financier Jeffry Epstein, Al Qaeda chieftain Osama bin Laden and Islamic State (outlawed in Russia) leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. “American billionaire Jeffrey Epstein was killed several weeks ago, they said he had committed suicide in jail. However, he was killed because he knew a lot of vital secrets connected with very important people in the British and American regimes, and possibly in other countries as well,” Assad pointed out.

“And now the main founder of the White Helmets has been killed, he was an officer and he had worked his whole life with NATO in Afghanistan, Kosovo, Iraq and Lebanon,” he went on to say.

“Both of us know that they [representatives of the White Helmets] are naturally part of Al Qaeda. I believe that these people, as well as the previously liquidated bin Laden and al-Baghdadi had been killed chiefly because they knew major secrets. They turned into a burden once they had played out their roles. A dire need to do away with them surfaced after they had fulfilled their roles,” Assad explained.

According to him, the death of Le Mesurier is the work of the CIA that got rid of the founder of the White Helmets independently or through the intelligence services of other countries. “Of course, this is the work of the secret services. But which secret service? When we talk about Western secret services in general, about Turkish and some other ones in our region, these are not the secret services of sovereign states, rather these are departments of the main intelligence agency – the CIA,” he stressed.

“It is quite possible that Turkish intelligence agencies did the job upon the instructions of foreign intelligence services,” he assumed. “Possibly, the founder of the White Helmets had been working on his memoirs and on the biography of his life, and this was unacceptable. This is an assumption, but a very serious one, since other options don’t sound convincing to me at the moment,” Assad concluded.

The White Helmets organization was set up in Syria in 2014. It is notorious for its uploading to the Internet photos and videos on destruction and casualties from alleged attacks from the Syrian government and its allies. The organization has been repeatedly accused of concocting fake news and staged incidents.

The same fate with Le Mesurier awaited the UK Military Attaché in Athens, Stephen W.J. Saunders, with service as UN observer in Iraq and Bosnia, for about the same reasons. It was deemed that he was about to disclose more harming details of his career to unauthorized people. Instructions to an efficient killer team were given on high levels to eliminate him. This common fate should serve as a warning to UK military officers away from work with MI6.

Him going public for his acts would have been much more damaging for other actors than MI6, e.g. MIT, Qatari Mukhabarat, etc… For sure he knew too much, and dead men tell no tales too.

Syrian Mukhabarat may be considered having VERY good reasons to liquidate Le Mesurier, MI6 and GRU too. Turkey has good reasons to want to silence him and was the best placed and they may not have needed instructions : they have a LOT to hide! Epstein : who cares about a paedophile? Thus, with the overkill habits of US judges, he’d probably had ended with a 100 years + in jail and usually, paedos are not so well seen in the west as in the MENA where child-brides are common… A Paedo will have a VERY VERY VERY hard time… Read more »

Nice stupid answer from you as usually as : – I pound with Assad saying I consider Le Mesurier was assassinated. – I consider Epstein may have been assassinated too, thus, with what he was jailed for, suicide also had high potential because being jailed as a paedophile (and same for being a child molester/murderer) is the west means that you will really live h**l on Earth from other convicts and likely from the wardens too. Muhammad living now, after having räped 9y old Aicha, once jailed, wouldn’t only serve no less than 15-20y jail : he’d end used as… Read more »
