Arab media in bed with Western intelligence services: Analyst
8/5/2012 Press TV Interview with Kevin Barrett with the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance from Wisconsin
Former al-Qaeda leader, Osama Bin
Laden, who has always been depicted by Western media as the United
States’ worst enemy, always trusted the Qatari al-Jazeera agency to
publish his messages to the world and now the two mentioned news
agencies are exclusively broadcasting the armed foreign insurgents'
messages to the world including footage of Iranian pilgrims kidnapped by
these terrorist groups.
Press TV has conducted an interview with Kevin Barrett of the
Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance from Wisconsin to further discuss the
The video also offers the opinions of two additional guests: Peter
Eyre, Middle East consultant from London and Lebanese political analyst,
What follows is an approximate transcription of the interview.
Press TV: Mr Barrett, your take? If we look at this situation
right now, let us say the story about Syria, it almost appears that it
is so many different stories taking place depending on what network we
actually turn to, to see what is really unfolding in Syria.
What has happened as far as in actual reporting, what is going on in
the news industry? We have seen a deterioration of independent news
journalism it seems, especially from the mainstream media since 9/11.
What is your take on this? What exactly has happened?
Barrett: Well, it is true, it got much worse after 9/11, but
this really is not anything new. We have seen the American foreign
policy establishment almost completely controlling and dominating big
American media as far back as a coup in the early 50’s in Iran, when the
Prime Minister Mosaddegh was overthrown.
CIA officer Kermit Roosevelt confessed that this
campaign to overthrow the government of Iran included waves of false
flag terrorism to be blamed on Mosaddegh supporters among other tactics
and the BBC was brought on board as a partner in this campaign to
overthrow the democratically elected government of Mosaddegh.
We have seen the same pattern repeat itself with other major foreign
affairs issues, certainly the Kennedy assassination is a big one.
President Kennedy was on a path to total disarmament and he was killed
by the hardliners in the US military and industrial complex, with the
complete complicity of the big American media.
There is actually a clip you can watch of I think it is a CBS
reporter, if my memory serves, on the morning of November 22, 1963
stating that the President is likely to be killed by a lone nut because
there is not good security in Dallas.
This was broadcast just hours before the president was killed ostensibly by a lone nut.
as for the 9/11, anybody who Googles WTC7 BBC, can watch the BBC
reporting the controlled demolition of building seven, although they did
not call it that, 20 minutes before it happened.
So this kind of media complicity in key foreign policy actions,
especially of the black ops variety is an old, old story and it is
obviously still going on in Syria.
Press TV: We know that a couple of members of Aljazeera resigned earlier this year because what they saw as biased reporting on Syria.
What does that say exactly to that degree that top people in a news
organization could not tolerate even working there any longer because of
what they saw, biased and sometimes even ‘creation’ of new stories
Barrett: Well, it is pretty ironic because when Aljazeera was
first created, it hired these same kinds of people who were journalists
with integrity, who did not like working as propaganda mouthpieces for
these various Arab regimes.
And Aljazeera started off with a bang and these people did report
with integrity and there are some good Aljazeera reporters, but I think
that they have degenerated over the past decade.
I have actually had some contact with people of
Aljazeera, there were folks there who wanted to do a story on me and the
9/11 truth movement in the USA and that was canceled by top management
who told them they simply could not touch that topic and the Aljazeera
source told me, the direct quote from his email to me is, “Aljazeera is
not what you think it is.”
And looking back in retrospect now all of that hyping of al-Qaeda,
where they are constantly showing you Bin Laden tapes, that was part of
the Western intelligence operation, which the Mossad and elements of the
CIA were perpetrating to deceive the world, to make the world believe
that somehow Bin Laden who was not even ever indicted by the FBI for
9/11 was guilty of the 9/11 attacks.
So, Aljazeera has been in bed with the Western intelligence
services, for at least the past decade and that should not surprise us
since the nation of Qatar is basically one big US military base
Press TV: Do you agree with what our guest (Roula Talj) in
Beirut has said that a lot of it is related to the military complex? Do
you think that with some of the mainstream media or corporate media I
should say, that it is hand in hand with certain Western governments
that it is working, for example, as she said, to cause conflict in order
to sell more weapons or to destabilize the region?
How do you see it? What is the real reason behind this?
Barrett: I think the guest is absolutely right.
The strategy is being set by the hard line Zionists in Israel.
They have been working to smash the Arab countries into pieces. They
have been planning this for decades and the obvious way to do that, is
to strike the fault lines of this sectarian differences and they are
trying to turn Sunni against Shiite and they are trying to also incite
ethnic nationalism among Kurds and other groups
They want to destroy all of these Middle Eastern states, break them
into much smaller pieces that could never be a threat to Israel.
So that is the grand strategy that is being played out, but
is the US that is actually implementing that strategy because
unfortunately the US is currently completely controlled by the Zionists
who instigated the 9/11 coup d’etat to consolidate their power here.
think that we have to keep in mind, especially, when we are talking to
the American people and tell them that they have been bankrupted and
bled dry by these hard line extremists Lukudnik Zionists who murdered
3000 Americans in the twin towers on 9/11.
So, yes the military industrial complex is full of corrupt people
who were happy to take money to build weapons and murder huge numbers of
But the strategy is the strategy of the Zionists
If the American people ever figure that out, we will stop this crazy destabilization of the Middle East.
