February 28th is an American day of infamy – the anniversary of the events that led to the Ruby Ridge and Waco mass slaughters of Americans by the government that had sworn to protect them. Today on Truth Jihad Radio, we welcome two of the most important people working to expose federal government corruption in the USA – James Petras and Barbara Honegger.
First hour: James Petras, the leading scholarly critic of Zionist power in America, is the author of War Crimes in Gaza and the Zionist Fifth Column in America. Alongside William Blum and Noam Chomsky, Petras is also a first-rank analyst and critic of US empire. His most recent articles examine Greece’s Zionist/bankster puppet Prime Minister, Zionism’s attack on Egyptian democracy, and an epitaph for imperial propagandist Daniel Bell. As a leading scholar of labor and resistance movements, Dr. Petras will presumably have something to say about the Wisconsin Revolution.
James Petras is the author of 64 books published in 29 languages, and over 560 articles in professional journals, including the American Sociological Review, British Journal of Sociology, Social Research, Journal of Contemporary Asia, and Journal of Peasant Studies. He has published over 2000 articles in nonprofessional journals such as the New York Times, the Guardian, the Nation, Christian Science Monitor, Foreign Policy, New Left Review, Partisan Review, Temps Moderne, Le Monde Diplomatique, and his commentary is widely carried on the internet. His publishers have included Random House, John Wiley, Westview, Routledge, Macmillan, Verso, Zed Books and Pluto Books.
Second hour: Barbara Honegger, Senior Military Affairs Journalist at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterrey, CA and researcher of the 9/11 and anthrax false-flag attacks. Barbara will:
* follow up on Friday’s interview with anthrax expert Barry Kissin;
* explain why the small minority of 9/11 truthers who want to shut down discussion of the Pentagon attack are misguided;
* and explain why she doubts many claims of my recent guest Dmitri Khalezov.
Barbara Honegger exposed the Bush-CIA October Surprise operation that brought down Jimmy Carter, provided Mike Ruppert with much of the “9/11 war games” evidence in Crossing the Rubicon, and has come up with some of the best 9/11 activism ideas, including the Boston Tea Party for 9/11 Truth and the recent Third Beam for WTC-7 event in New York City.
6 Thoughts to “James Petras, Barbara Honegger on TJ Radio today”
I know I should be grateful as all your hard work and the archives are "free", but lately the shows haven't been getting archived for many days; perhaps a week or more. Anyway, really looking forward to listening to Jim and Barbara's interviews in due course.
Sadly, the wrong broadcast has now been archived in the Petras/Honneger slot — it's a repeat of the Sander Hicks from a couple of weeks earlier.
I just forwarded this comment to American Freedom Radio. I hope they will fix the problem soon.
Entire article is worth reading:
Here are the relevant parts for this interview:
Towards the end of the interview with Kevin Barrett, Honegger makes a few claims about Khalezov that I don't think reconcile with his testimony and allegations. The first comment that caught by attention dealt with Khalezov's allegations against Mike Harari, discussed above. She claims:
"Yes, his testimony about Harari is first hand. And as far as I see it, it's very strange, because he's being very coy in leaving out who it was that Harari and the Mossad, meaning Israel, allegedly, presumably sold this Granit missile to that then hit the Pentagon."
Khalezov only says that Harari told him that the Granit missiles were stolen (or at least acquired) from the Kursk by the Mossad. Khalezov is simply testifying what he learned from his service in the Russian army, what Mike Harari told him and what he learned in assisting with the defense of Victor Bout: that many (if not all) of the nuclear Granit missiles onboard the Russian Kursk submarine that sank in August 2000 were stolen, and one of them hit the Pentagon on 9/11. And 9/11 was organized primarily by Mike Harari of the Israeli Mossad.
Honegger goes on to say:
"So it's a very strange thing for him to be saying when he claims to be so close to Mike Harari, a long-time personal friend from the same village in Russia, and all of this. It seems a very strange thing to do to basically hang his good friend out to dry in this way."
First off, Khalezov never claims that he and Harari are from the same village in Russia. He clearly states that he met Harari in Bangkok well after his service in the Soviet military. He does state that he and Victor Bout are from the same village in Russia though. Khalezov also says that he and Harari developed a good friendship, which is how Khalezov learned of Harari's involvement in 9/11 after Harari confided in him and told him. Khalezov is "hanging his good friend out to dry" because he later learned that Harari tried setting him up to take the fall for his criminal conduct in Thailand.
Honegger then makes this statement:
"Well, you know he's slitting his own throat doing this in a way because he's admitted on your program, or claimed on your program, that he, Khalezov, worked directly and helped Harari sell arms in Thailand to al-Qaeda, so why should we believe Mr. Khalezov wasn't involved in getting this Granit missile on behave of Mr. Harari to whoever received it and then slammed it into the Pentagon. I mean he's really opening himself up to be part of this conspiracy that he's allegedly revealing."
I'd like to know when Khalezov ever made this claim that he "worked directly and helped Harari sell arms in Thailand to al-Qaeda." He never did. He developed a friendship with Harari through Mossad-linked people he knew in Bangkok. Harari was the one who organized and sold arms to al-Qaeda in Thailand at the behest of the Israeli Mossad, not Khalezov. Harari was originally interested in the information Khalezov had acquired through his work in the Soviet army, in particular, whether Khalezov knew of the nuclear demolitions placed underneath the World Trade Center buildings in New York City. Khalezov never claimed to help Harari sell weapons to anyone in any of his interviews with Kevin Barrett. So Honegger simply has her facts wrong here, and needs to apologize, on air, for her ignorant statements.
Honegger's snide, arrogant dismissal of Khalezov is rather baffling, considering her background in this movement and professional credentials. At the very least, she owes Khalezov, a brave man for coming forth with this information, an apology for inaccurately accusing him of things he did not say. It was simply inexcusable for Barrett to allow these extremely ignorant and arrogant statements put forth by Honegger to go unchallenged.
