Slandered by Sex-Stalker "Brian Good" and Op-Ed News Editor

"Brian Good" is probably the most hilariously dubious character in the whole 9/11 truth movement. Truth and justice activist Carol Brouillet reports that Brian volunteered to do the grunt work for her group, then started sexually stalking and harassing her. She should have had him charged, convicted, and imprisoned. Instead, she very firmly showed him the door.
"Brian" then volunteered for Richard Gage's AE911truth.org and disrupted that group.

Meanwhile "Brian" has been stalking and harassing William Rodriguez and myself, repeatedly vandalizing our Wikipedia entries until he was finally banned from Wikipedia. For some reason "Brian" claims to blame me for the popularity of William Rodriguez, who was famous long before anyone had ever heard of me.

What might explain such bizarre compulsive behavior? "Brian" is reportedly obsessed with sick sexual fantasies about leading 9/11 truthers -- the kind of stuff he repeatedly inflicted on a very unwilling and utterly disgusted Carol Brouillet until she told him to get lost or she would call the police. William Rodriguez and I, like Carol, apparently suffer the misfortune of playing a role in "Brian"'s fantasy life. This is, of course, assuming that "Brian" is what he appears to be -- a lunatic sex criminal -- rather than a paid provocateur pretending to be a lunatic sex criminal.

"Brian" somehow finds the time to read every word I write and listen to every radio show I host or guest, then libels me by lying about what I said. Most recently he wrote at Op-Ed News:

"Last Friday Barrett told an AM radio audience on KDKA with a reach of the entire eastern half of the country that the Nazis' murder of 6 million Jews was a lesser crime than invading Poland."

Please listen to what I actually said on KDKA: http://www.kdkaradio.com/pages/3624256.php

Note that I simply cited the Nuremburg Tribunal, which clearly stated that aggression is a greater crime than genocide because it includes any genocide that results from that aggression. Here is a quote from my new book Questioning the War on Terror: A Primer for Obama Voters:

To get an idea of just HOW illegal these invasions and occupations (of Afghanistan and Iraq) are, remember that the Nazis were tried, convicted, and sentenced to death for the supreme war crime: aggression. As post-World War II International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg put it, the waging of aggressive war "essentially an evil thing...to initiate a war of aggression...is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime, differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole." According to international law and basic morality, aggression is worse than raping children, worse than torturing people to death in boxcars, worse even than genocide. Why? Because starting a war, by invading someone else's country, leads to all the other crimes and disasters, including genocide. Hitler's illegal invasion of Poland led to the deaths of more than 60 million people, while the Holocaust killed fewer than one-tenth that many. That is why the Nazis were hanged at Nuremburg for aggression—the supreme war crime, the worst crime a human being can commit. (Bush's wars have killed more than a million people so far, according to The Lancet, one of the world's leading medical journals.) --Questioning the War on Terror, p.43

Now while I don't really mind being slandered by enemies like psycho-stalker "Brian Good," it really pisses me off when people who haven't yet heard of "Brian" believe his lies. Apparently an Op-Ed News editor did, by flagging "Brian"'s slander with this comment:

This comment has been flagged by an editor
Reason: (Nasty Attacks) I don't know; I've seen less backup in comments before and I think our criteria for comments is a whole lot less than for publication. This is not so much slander as disagreement - and if what the writer says about the host comparing the holocaust favorably to the Nazi polish invasion is true, then I would tend to agree with his assessment. As for the 911 controversy, it is, well controversial, to say the least. Personally, I'd reach for the dial quickly if I ever found my radio tuned to someone like Dr. (Dr. of what?) Barrett.


"Comparing the Holocaust favorably..." WTF!? This editor refused to actually listen to the show, instead assuming that the psycho-stalker slanderer was telling the truth, when in fact he was lying as usual.

I request an apology from the management at Op-Ed News. Please go to the url below and post a comment responding to "Brian" and the Op-Ed News editor, pointing out that I was obviously not speaking "favorably" about the Holocaust, and defending the Nuremburg Tribunal's clear statement that aggression is the supreme war crime:

  1. Gosh Kevin, if you're going to write fiction about me can't you at least make it interesting?

    Are you ever going to discuss the extremely destructive things you have done to make Truthers look like idiots, or are you going to continue to be a Gutless Wonder forever?

    So I take it you still won't admit that Willie Rodriguez's story was a lie and you either knew it was a lie or didn't know because you didn't bother to check?

  2. I didn't say you spoke favorably about the holocaust. I said you said that invading Poland was a greater crime than "toasting six million Jews".

  3. Nice try at dissembling, quoting what you wrote instead of what you said. Makes me wonder what you actually wrote before your wife edited it. You should have her edit your mouth, too.

  4. So you couldn't make this point without saying "toasting 6 million Jews"? And you're wrong about Nuremberg - the defendants were also tried for war crimes and crimes against humanity. Yes, conspiracy to wage agressive war and waging war of agression were the main charges, but you are wrong that the genocide was not tried as a crime against humanity.

    And yes, Justice Jackson said:

    "To initiate a war of aggression, therefore, is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole."

    He was talking about the evil of war, with all its attendant death and destruction. Genocide might certainly be included in that, as genocides can result from wars. Your basic point that wars of agression are the supreme international crime is a good and essential point, but it need and should not be made my minimizing the genocide, and especially not using such flippant language.

  5. "Psycho sex criminal" - Wow, who's slandering who? Nice to see you're still up to your scumbag ways, Barrett. You really deserve the very worst.

  7. Kevin, you have a habit of construing somebody quoting your own words to you as slander.

    I'm no prizewinning scholar like you are, but I checked your claim that all of the Nazis executed got the death penalty for the war of aggression. 12 were sentenced to hang.

    If Wikipedia can be believed, Streicher was a publisher, not a soldier. He was not convicted of crimes against against peace, but of being a jew-baiter.

    Sauckel was charged with crimes against peace and aggressive war but not convicted. He was hanged for war crimes and crimes against humanity.

    Borman, Frank, and Kaltenbrunner were charged but not convicted of crimes against peace. They were hanged for war crimes and crimes against humanity.

  8. Kevin, when you go on a radio program heard through half the nation and you argue with the host saying the conventional view of the holocaust is not true and you are wrong on basic facts you make a fool of yourself and of the people who support you.

    You have been liability to the Truth movement ever since you put a picture of yourself engaging in an act of symbolic autofellation on the cover of your puerile autobiography. Your stunts have gotten increasingly destructive since then. What are you going to do next?

    I've got an idea: why don't you take a nice long walk out Brace Road, past Bakkens Pond. Out in the river are a couple of nice wooded islands. Why don't you establish the Kingdom of Barrettonia out there? You can be Ambassador to the Birds and the Frogs. And don't call us, we'll call you.

  9. Kev, I can't resist commenting on that fabulous finishing touch you put on your piece by putting the name "Brian" in quotes.

    I've said before, but it bears repeating: Nobody does self-satire like Barrett. But then few of us have his rich source material.
