On the 5th October 2022, HTL welcomed back James Corbett for another discussion about his work and to get some insights into the current state of world geopolitics.
James hosts and produces the very well-known and very well-respected Corbett Report. The Corbett Report is an independent, listener-supported alternative news source and an outlet for independent critical analysis of politics, society, history, and economics. James himself is an award-winning investigative journalist who has lectured on geopolitics at the University of Groningen’s Studium Generale. He has also delivered presentations on open source journalism at The French Institute for Research in Computer Science, at Ted-X-Groningen and at Rit-su-meikan University in Kyoto. The Corbett Report is essential viewing for an understanding of how the world works and how powerful institutions shape history.
In the interview with Rusere Shoniwa, James discussed one of his latest pieces of work – an epic three-part documentary series entitled False Flags: A Secret History of Al Qaeda. It takes you on a mind-blowing journey into the history that shaped geopolitics in the Middle East and gave birth to Al Qaeda. Crucially, it draws on a bank of evidence that is so rich in quality and depth that it leads ineluctably to the conclusion that 9/11 was a false flag event.
In reaching this conclusion, the documentary series unveils the true meaning of 9/11. In many respects, one can’t understand what is happening now unless we understand 9/11 – not just the evidential holes in the narrative but getting to the heart of how the deep state used 9/11 in its aftermath. This is crucial to the whole story because the reasons for 9/11 are unfolding right now. The ultimate goals of that project are continuously morphing. The terror suspects in 2001 all had Arabic names and came from faraway places in the Middle East. Today, if you disagree with the orthodoxy of the day and if you express that disagreement in ways that truly threaten the Government’s programme, you are the terrorist – a domestic terrorist. This is the route that governments in the formerly free world are going down with various forms of legislation to censor and criminalise dissent of all forms.
The conversation segues into a discussion of the geopolitical implications of the Ukraine conflict, speculation on the Nord stream pipeline sabotage and on the future of humanity in a multipolar world under the NATO and BRICS power blocs.
