Our starting point tonight is the US-Saudi relationship. Two of the three guests will be appearing at the Roots of Conflict Conference at Portland State University on February 3rd (scroll down for more information).
First 30 minutes: Dr. Scott Bennett, formerly of the U.S. Army 11th Psychological Operations Battalion, attempted to blow the whistle by contacting the media and writing to politicians after being sacked from his job as terrorist finance investigator after he proved too zealous at the job. So far the corporate media and the politicians have been unresponsive. (Check out the full story in his book Shell Game.) Scott will be appearing with me at the Portland conference.
Second 30 minutes: Eric Walberg is a former mainstream journalist, author, and noted geopolitical analyst and Mideast expert. Like me, he writes for Crescent International. His most recent book is The Canada-Israel Nexus.
Final hour: Dr. James Fetzer will be appearing with me and Scott Bennett at the Portland conference. He will also be lecturing in the Portland area on false flags and the JFK assassination. In this interview we discuss the many ongoing attempts to suppress critical thinking and open debate on key mythic-historical issues including: the JFK assassination, 9/11 and other false flags, holocausts and genocides, etc.
