Prominent English Blogger Eliot Higgins has been linked to American Terrorist Matthew Van Dyke and supression of information of Jabhat Al-Nusra possession of Sarin. The Van-Dyke Facebook was hacked by the Syrian Electronic Army and his private Twitter messages published. (website now blocked in Australia by ASIO order)

Elliot Higgins has received at least some funding from the Syrian Support Group - a US NGO providing non-lethal US Government aid to Syria - gas-masks, atropine, covert communicatons equipment, etc. i.e. a CIA front.

SSG has delivered over $10 million in non-lethal U.S. Government aid to the Free Syrian Army.

The Syrian Support Group has also been active in releasing disinformation on Syria both through Higgins and by direct press-release. e.g.

which is a fraudulent document released on August 21 blaming the Syrian Government. It used completely fictitious facts in preparation for a US strike.

Seymour Hersh has just written an expose on US Government disinformation regarding Syria and Sarin, saying that the US knew for certain that Islamist group Jabhat al-Nusra had aquired Sarin, and that the Sarin used on August 21 was very low quality compared to the high quality Syrian Government arsenal.
