Hollywood is an extension of US foreign policy and the fake news media. One of the most controversial decisions at this year’s Oscar ceremony was the fact that The White Helmets, a movie produced by digital giant Netflix, won Best Documentary Short. For the company, it was their first-ever Oscar at the prestigious ceremony. 

The 40-minute feature follows the daily operations of a group of volunteer rescue workers of the Syrian Civil Defense, also known as the White Helmets. The group received wide coverage in the mainstream media and is portrayed as heroes and saviors, who operate in parts of rebel-controlled Syria.

The group is not Syrian; it was created with USA/UK funding under the supervision of a British military contractor in 2013 in Turkey. The NATO White Helmets are primarily a media campaign to support the ‘regime change’ goals of the USA and allies. After being founded by security contractor James LeMesurier, the group was “branded” as the White Helmets in 2014 by a marketing company called “The Syria Campaign” managed out of New York.
