Arrested Euro Truth Leader Dr. Eric Beeth, Critic of US Empire William Blum on KB Show

Tuesday, September 14th, 9-10 a.m. Pacific (noon-1 pm Eastern) on, to be archived here a few hours after broadcast…

First half-hour: European 9/11 truth leader Dr. Eric Beeth of Medical Professionals for 9/11 Truth. Dr. Beeth is an Assistant Professor, General Practice Medicine, Vrije Universiteit, Brussels. He and eighteen other 9/11 truth activists were arrested and jailed on September 11th 2010 in Brussels, Belgium for chalking information about 9/11 on public sidewalks. Below is my abridged translation of his report about the arrests.

Second half-hour: Leading US Empire critic William Blum, “the thinking man’s Chomsky.” William Blum is the author of Killing Hope: US Military and CIA Interventions Since World War II, which documents an “American holocaust” of millions of people killed and tens of millions who have had their lives ruined by US military and CIA aggression against dozens of nations who never attacked or threatened us. We will discuss topics covered in Blum’s latest Anti-Empire Report: Afghanistan, Iraq, the Lockerbie cover-up, Islamophobia and the “Ground Zero mosque”…and get an update on Blum’s evolving take on 9/11.

From Eric Beeth, 9/12/2010 (my abridged translation from the French):

I am writing to thank all our friends who were worried about us yesterday after learning that we were arrested and held at the Brussels Central Police Headquarters.

I have urgent medical and administrative duties awaiting me, so I don’t know yet how I’m going to give a more positive description of our detention than a privation of the freedom of nineteen marvelous people (wishing to correct our media’s failure to properly inform us) on a beautiful afternoon in Brussels.

I just want to send a brief and temporary “witness’s account” to some of my friends, and maybe make it official later after further reflection in order to guarantee a positive impact.

The fact is that yesterday afternoon, we suffered five hours of punitive administrative detention. There were nineteen of us, of whom two were minors. We were not interrogated, which is too bad, because I still have an important judicial declaration to make: We admit to having written critically important information, in chalk, on the sidewalk this September 11th, 2010, but there was no damage to public or private property: Our messages were already washed out by the rain by Sunday morning, September 12th. There was no disruption of public order. On the contrary, our actions were entirely peaceful, and they were designed to re-establish peace and public order, by encouraging our media and politicians to inform themselves about the laws of physics and chemistry that were violated by the official explanation of 9/11 as reported in the media.

Please remember that 650 Belgian soldiers are currently in a war zone far from our shores, and outside of the zone associated with NATO’s mission, in a war created by the false story about the events of September 11th. Our media continue to this day to blame the horrific attacks of September 11th on a specific ethnic and religious profile, without any legal proof whatsoever, thereby causing ethnic tension and animosity toward a religious group — an act that is punishable by law.

Given that nine years have passed without the official version inscribed by the New York Times of 9/12/2001 ever being revised in light of the scientific, chemical and legal evidence assembled by , and , we therefore felt obliged to communicate the necessity that our media inform itself about this issue, with the help of our peaceful and informative action of 9/11/2010 in Brussels.

If the RTBF and the VRT took their “honor charter” seriously and followed article 2 of the RTBF’s code: “Every citizen has the right to accurate and complete information, and the right to know the factual details and principal points of view about every question of importance” they would never have detained these 19 concerned citizen intellectuals, including the two children.


Today, five centuries later (after the “Amigo” affair involving Belgian resistance to Spanish occupation), it is apparently still dangerous to denounce the occupying force responsible for the Brabant (false-flag terror) massacres — see the Belgian section of Prof. Daniel Ganser’s book NATO’s Secret Armies — as well as for the mass murders of September 11th, 2001 — without being thrown in the “Amigo” (prison) of Brussels on a beautiful September 11th afternoon with free speech and a sidewalk as the only weapons of the crime!

    And bravo Dr. Barrett for the translation.

  2. Dear all,
    I’m looking forward to being on-air with you tomorrow Sept. 14th at 9-10 a.m. Pacific (noon-1 pm Eastern).

    Please note that after more than 10 years of teaching, I am no longer on the VUB list of teachers of General Medicine.

    Brussels is where Cheney, Bush, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Perle, Libby, Silverstein, and Meyers, among others, will be tried, sentenced and hanged at a future International War Crimes Tribunal.

    This is Natasha again, as usual not feeling like signing in. I have one issue here: calling ANYONE "The thinking man's Chomsky." How can you suggest that Chomsky is not for a thinking man? Chomsky is a pure genius, a true renaissance man with his finger competently in many pies. He is an eminent scholar. He is the father of about half of the fields in Linguistics which exist. Perhaps you don't agree with his foreign policy views? After all, he is not a Truther, though he should be. But that is no reason to impugn his intellectual capabilities or audience. Thank you for listening.

  5. It's a double-edged joke, featuring my trademark ambivalent irony ; – )

    For such a bright guy, Chomsky sure can play dumb about Palestine and 9/11 .

    How can a thinking person say that if we prove the WTC was destroyed by controlled demolitions, that would just show that Osama did it? That 9/11 will cease to have any relevance once Bush is out of office? That 9/11 was definitely an outside job, and that even though there is some evidence pointing the other way, it really doesn't matter anyway?

    Blum, "the thinking man's Chomsky"! You're one of my favorite comics, Kevin. Unfortunately it will be lost on thinking people in 9/11 denial.

  7. Glad somebody out there relishes ambivalent irony 😉
