At the beginning of 2002, just a few months after 9/11, Thierry Meyssan wrote the biggest blockbuster in French publishing history, L’Effrayeuse imposture. Meyssan convinced French president Chirac, and the whole Muslim world, that 9/11 was a fraud. His book was the most important single factor leading to France’s refusal to join the US war on Iraq. Meyssan’s bestseller was perhaps the most important and influential 9/11 truth book of all time, because it came out early enough to have a major impact on history.
Now Meyssan is out with a new book providing an alternative perspective on the wars that 9/11 was scripted to unleash…especially their second phase under Obama. Before Our Very Eyes: Fake Wars and Big Lies from 9/11 to Donald Trump exposes the so-called “Arab Spring” of 2011 as a fraud engineered by Pentagon regime-changers and their hirelings.
Along with the analysis, Meyssan recounts how he personally played a major role in resisting the Obama Adminstration’s proxy wars on Libya and Syria. Though I don’t fully agree with his analysis—I think he underestimates the (admittedly flawed) Muslim Brotherhood and overestimates Donald Trump—I would still rank Before Our Very Eyes as the best, most insightful and accurate history of the post-2011 Muslim East. Unlike all of the official and pseudo-alternative histories, this one follow’s W.C. Fields’ advice to “take the bull by the tail and look the facts in the face.” And the facts show that we are being outrageously lied to by leaders whose incompetence, corruption, fanaticism, sadism, and almost unimaginable mendacity will boggle the minds of future historians.
In the last 10 minutes of the show, Republican activist Rolf Lindgren comments on some of the issues raised in the interview.
