  • 6 years ago
Roger Waters said on Friday, April 13, at a concert in Barcelona that the Syrian Civil Defense group, more commonly known as the White Helmets, were a “fake organization that exists only to create propaganda for the jihadists and terrorists.”Waters said he had denied a request from a man named Pascal, who Waters said purported to represent the White Helmets, to speak on stage about the recent suspected chemical attack in Douma prior to the concert. According to Waters, Pascal believed that the Syrian government was responsible for the attack.“I would encourage Pascal to wait until the evidence is in before he leaps to any conclusions,” said Waters.Waters concluded his address to the audience by asking Pascal to “wake up and smell the fucking roses.” Credit: Dima Abboud via Storyful
