The Fabricated Global War on TerrorismSpeakers: Jim Fetzer, Michael Springmann, Gearóid Ó Colmáin
Michael Springmann – 6:35 – 26:25
Jim Fetzer – 26:45 – 53:20
Gearoid O Colmain – 53:38 – 1:25:23
Following 9/11, right-wing neo-cons had carte blanche to wage a planned, calculated war on “terrorists” under the guise of protecting Americans from Islamic jihadis. This manufactured worldwide assault helped ensure perpetual war and a heightened security state in the US. When al Queda was no longer threatening enough, out of thin air comes ISIS, a newly-branded, revamped incarnation.
The yellow-journalism press rarely reports that ISIS was 100% planned, created and controlled by US/NATO/Israel/Turkey/Saudi forces. Publicly this newest bogeyman is reviled and used to whip up fear and bellicosity. Behind the scenes, ISIS is our shock troops, the go-to mercenaries to effect regime change in places like Libya and Syria, and ensure wavering countries like France tow the line.
The panel will challenge commonly-held beliefs perpetuated by corporate media and the government about who’s really behind these “terrorist” groups, and generate ways the Left can expose the truth. Gearoid O Colmain deconstructs “weaponized migration” as a tool to force Europe into submission. Jim Fetzer explains how we know that ISIS was “Made in the USA”. Whistleblower Michael Springmann provides an inside account of how the CIA clandestinely handed out visas at the consulate in Jedda in order to produce trained-in-the-USA terrorists for 9/11 and beyond.

9/11 — An Ecumenical Approach
Barbara Honnegger – 7:45 – 56:23
Kevin Barrett – 58:55 – 1:45:37
A good number of the challengers of the official 9/11 story are Leftists who focus on the forensic and political facts–not ideological positions. Much of the Left, however, shun discussion or investigation of the many omissions, misstatements, and deceptions of what is essentially a Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld version of 9/11. Left leadership has called 9/11 inquiry a distraction from “the real work.” Given that “everything changed after 9/11,” 9/11 activists feel “the real work” is to expose the unprecedented power transferred to the corporate/government/military/intelligence state by the acceptance of a deceitful official 9/11 narrative.
A growing number of Leftists say exposing 9/11 truth is a prerequisite to end wars on terrorism, reduce Islamophobia, restore civil liberties, and slash the bloated Pentagon budget. By means of scientific facts, panelists will suggest how the Left could lead the way in exposing the fraudulence of the official 9/11 story. This can be a powerful form of rebellion against the lies used to undermine our freedoms. Active Q&A with the audience aims to further a Leftist understanding of 9/11, as well as invoke a transpartisan willingness to include 9/11 activism in the Left agenda.

COINTELPRO Post-9/11 — First They Came for the Muslims
Speakers: Lynne Jackson. Mauri Saalakhan, Taalib-Din Shakir
Lynne Jackson – 10:50- 31:10
Mauri Saalakhan – 37:45 – 1:04:47
Taalib-Din Shakir – 1:06:35 – 1:26 – 41
The FBI’s Counter Intelligence Program is alive and well today targeting a wide variety of activists. Many are ordinary Muslims the FBI entraps on bogus “terrorist” charges. They often serve long prison sentences, many confined in special Communication Management Units — prisons within prisons also known as Little Guantanamo. Informants are key to these entrapments. The FBI has over 10,000 compromised individuals they leverage to infiltrate groups or befriend easy targets such as people with visa issues, money problems or mentally disabilities.
With seemingly limitless resources and a public whipped up by post-9/11 Islamophobia, Arabs are in the crosshairs as a first line of attack on our constitutional rights. The panel will expose the FBI’s sting operations and discuss ways the Left can mobilize in support of the Muslim community.
Mauri Saalakhan is a leading international activist on Muslim issues with global insights to share. Lynne Jackson, a Muslim-support activist, gives an inside legal view of three brothers serving life sentences for allegedly planning to kill soldiers at an Army base. Taalib-din Shakir, a young African-American convert to Islam, tells a sordid story of arrest at the hands of New Jersey police.

Assassinations and Their Cover-Ups
Speakers: Andrew Krieg, Russ Baker, William Pepper
William Pepper – 1:01 – 40:05
Russ Baker – 40:17 – 1:00:17
Andrew Krieg – 1:00:27 – 1:31:29
Were John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King and Robert F. Kennedy victims of lone-nut killers as the Deep State contends? Or was that a cover for assassinations a shadow government orchestrated? If so, were the perpetrators emboldened to commit more murders and crimes? What would our lives be like if these three powerful politicians were still alive? Who benefitted from their violent deaths? Who thwarted meaningful investigations of these game-changing assassinations?
Who continues to cover them up, and why? Could the development of a Left consensus on these deaths promote unity and perhaps even help safeguard other Left-leaning leaders? The government was forced by law to release thousands of documents on the JFK assassination, yet many remain inexplicably classified. Who knows what discoveries await if funding were available for thorough investigations? Remarkably, after 50+ years, there still are many leads in what is the most famous cold case in US history.
Russ Baker is currently researching a book about the Kennedy assassination and has much new information to share. Andrew Krieg, in addition to JFK assassination research, has also written on the murder of RFK. William Pepper, a distinguished human rights lawyer, represented James Earl Ray and Sirhan Sirhan, and has written several books about the murder of Dr. King.

False Flags — Defeating a “Global Gladio” Agenda
Speakers: Kevin Barrett, Richard Dolan, Chris Emery
Richard Dolan – 2:00 – 27:47
Kevin Barrett – 29:05 – 57:15
Chris Emery – 58:05 – 1:24:11
The CIA/NATO created Operation Gladio after WWII in Europe to prevent communism. Stay-behind Cold War special forces unleashed terrorist bombings and murders and blamed leftists. These black ops continue today as a global Gladio–attacks that are staged and, post-9/11, usually blamed on Muslims. Also known as false flags–covert attacks created by one group then attributed to patsies–this terrorism achieves many shadow-government goals. Besides fomenting Islamophobia, false flags cow an unwitting public into supporting a militaristic, fascist agenda. Fueled by a neo-McCarthy, anti-truth climate, false flags intimidate activists from critical inquiry beyond levels of “acceptable dissent.”
Kevin Barrett is at the forefront of challenging the false flag phenomena, from 9/11 to Mumbai to Paris, San Bernardino and beyond, he analyzes the similarities of the growing false flag industry. Ongoing attacks–both low-level and audacious spectacles–are required elements in maintaining a permanent security state. Richard Dolan tells the history of false flags since the 1930s, likening them to massive mind control ops. Chris Emery shares the case study of Oklahoma City.
Sunday, May 22nd, 09:00-10:50 am PST * 12:00-01:50 pm EST * 16:00-17:50 GMT Speakers: Zarinah Shakir, Stephen Downs, Kevin Barrett
Islamophobia — Fallout for Failure to Challenge the Proxy Role of Muslims in 9/11
Speakers: Zarinah Shakir, Stephen Downs, Kevin Barrett
Kevin Barrett – 12:07 – 34:22
Steve Downs – 35:04 – 1:00:32
The official 9/11 story is preposterous: that 19 Arabs with box cutters commandeered by a guy in a cave in Afghanistan got past the most powerful military the world has ever known. Yet, the Left has unerringly gone along with this neoconservative Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld version of events. The result has been an open season on Muslims who are regularly depicted as terrorists. The Left–traditional foes of racism–are cowed into silence by a neo-McCarthy climate from challenging the numerous holes in the official 9/11 story and its resultant Islamophobia.
In spite of the risks, many activists are speaking out against a 9/11 Muslim terrorist narrative. The panel will discuss the staggering consequences of Islamophobia, from violations of civil liberties, false accusations and imprisonment, to the death and destruction of many innocent people in the global war on terror. Dr. Kevin Barrett, a Muslim convert, is one of the leading voices exposing the fraudulence of the official 9/11 story and its concomitant lie of Muslim criminality. Attorney Steve Downs focuses on preemptive prosecution, profiling and prisoner abuse. African-American Zarinah Shakir provides an overview from a Muslim perspective.
