Kevin Barrett on Mancow Radio Program This Morning - Audio Stream

Mancow's Morning Madhouse Archive - 02/16/2007 -

If you let the stream fully load you should be able to jump to the position of 1hr 54min in the stream where the interview with Kevin Barrett begins.

Thanks to Chris Rose and altruist for mentioning this!

Kickass Kevin

Yeah, Kevin did a great job....

....he had an immediate answer for everything thrown at him. The perps fear that honest 9/11 discussions of the evidence will take place in our schools, our they always try to attach the "how dare you discuss this 'outrageous conspiracy theory' in our hallowed halls of academia"-card to Kevin.

They think their OV propaganda has done such a good job entrenching the government myth in American's heads that they can stir up some outrage over this material being even addressed in a classroom. "How much is tuition at Wisconsin again?"

And, of course they must emphasize that Kevin is a Muslim, because as we all "know" by now "Muslims are evil" (sarcasm). Again, they have a high opinion of the thoroughness of the brainwashing they've done in that regard.

But, Kevin just good-naturedly sticks to the facts and made his points. Interesting that they cut him off right after he brought up Bush's complete melt-down at Booker Elementary. Even if someone out there is still stuck in the incompetence theory, it is still a very unsettling image....that had to be muzzled, quick...(can you believe they trotted out that ludicrous "Bush couldn't leap into action, it would frighten the children" canard?....mind-boggling)....and then Kevin is castigated right after they cut him off...

Great job.

After filling out the strip search fields, I added my comments:

Now, what is your home number and where do you live? Fair is fair.

Also, what exactly are your doubts about 9-11 that you said you have?

Consider this, if the administration cannot be trusted, then we have no reason to believe thier story about 9-11. After all, it was written by Philip Zelikow, Exec Dir of the 9-11 Commission and expert in public myths and Bush insider. Most witness testimony cited in the report was presented as hearsay and aquired via torture. We don't claim to know what happend.

But don't we deserve to know?

Mancow and his sidekick kind

Mancow and his sidekick kind of sounded like Abbott & Costello... appropriate as spokesmen for the 16% who believe the government :)

Great job, Kevin... steady, sure and to the point.


That was a very one-sided interview - the Truth side. Kevin kicked serious butt. Mancow didn't even put up a fight. The tide is turning.

here is the clip by itself

way to go Kevin !!!!



Just finished listening... GREAT JOB Kevin... Mancow and his sidekicks sounded like a bunch of whiney kids by the time you had finished with them.

Nice one... Best wishes

Cheers--I don't have all day

Cheers--I don't have all day to wade through rubbish!

Someone's put MadCow on a short leash--or he's laid off the cocaine! He sounded positively calm and reasonable.

Yeah, Kevin did an excellent job, though towards the end he could have reined in his frustration; you don't give them a reason to jump on you, however tenuous! Instead say something like, "I think the children would be MORE disturbed by being bombed to death because their proximity to the president, than if Bush just said he had to leave suddenly."

Otherwise, good show!

Impeachment. Accountability. A better world.

What I think is a good indication...

That they ordered the attacks, or at the very least, had a say as to when the attacks would take place.

July 21, 2001: US Official Threatens Possible Military Action Against Taliban by October if Pipeline Is Not Pursued Niaz Naik. [Source: Calcutta Telegraph]

Thanks to

Three former American officials, Tom Simons (former US Ambassador to Pakistan), Karl Inderfurth (former Deputy Secretary of State for South Asian Affairs), and Lee Coldren (former State Department expert on South Asia) meet with Pakistani and Russian intelligence officers in a Berlin hotel. [Salon, 9/16/2002] This is the third of a series of back-channel conferences called “brainstorming on Afghanistan.” Taliban representatives sat in on previous meetings, but boycotted this one due to worsening tensions. However, the Pakistani ISI relays information from the meeting to the Taliban. [Guardian, 10/22/2001] At the meeting, Coldren passes on a message from Bush officials. He later says, “I think there was some discussion of the fact that the United States was so disgusted with the Taliban that they might be considering some military action.” [Guardian, 10/26/2001] Accounts vary, but former Pakistani Foreign Secretary Niaz Naik later says he is told by senior American officials at the meeting that military action to overthrow the Taliban in Afghanistan is planned to “take place before the snows started falling in Afghanistan, by the middle of October at the latest.” The goal is to kill or capture both bin Laden and Taliban leader Mullah Omar, topple the Taliban regime, and install a transitional government of moderate Afghans in its place. Uzbekistan and Russia would also participate. Naik also says, “It was doubtful that Washington would drop its plan even if bin Laden were to be surrendered immediately by the Taliban.” [BBC, 10/18/2001] One specific threat made at this meeting is that the Taliban can choose between “carpets of bombs” —an invasion—or “carpets of gold” —the pipeline. [Brisard and Dasquie, 2002] Naik contends that Tom Simons made the “carpets” statement. Simons claims, “It’s possible that a mischievous American participant, after several drinks, may have thought it smart to evoke gold carpets and carpet bombs. Even Americans can’t resist the temptation to be mischievous.” Naik and the other American participants deny that the pipeline was an issue at the meeting. [Salon, 9/16/2002]

There was a specific time frame for invading Afghanistan on the table. An invasion that required the 9/11 attacks as a pretext.

Coincidence or just a little TOO convenient?

Here's a simple illustration:

Good job Kevin.

Show "Pipeline" by JamesB

I didn't...

Post that for the pipeline. Which everyone at the conference denied. I posted it to show a desire to invade Afghanistan prior to 9/11.

I guess I could have posted the report that there were invasion plans for Afghanistan on the President's desk on 9/9/2001, but that would have been too easy.

What Wiki has to say about the pipeline.

The Trans-Afghanistan Pipeline (TAP or TAPI) is a proposed natural gas pipeline being developed by the Asian Development Bank. The pipeline will transport Caspian Sea natural gas from Turkmenistan through Afghanistan into Pakistan and then to India.

The 1,680 km pipeline will run from the Dauletabad gas field to Afghanistan. From there TAPI will be constructed alongside the highway running from Herat to Kandahar, and then via Quetta and Multan in Pakistan. The final destination of the pipeline will be the Indian town of Fazilka, near the border between Pakistan and India. The pipeline will be 1,420 mm in diameter with a working pressure of 100 atm and the capacity of 33 billion cubic meter (bcm) of natural gas annually. Six compressor stations are to be constructed along the pipeline. The cost of this international infrastructure is estimated at US$3.5 billion (2005 figures). Proponents of the project see it as a modern continuation of the Silk Road. The Afghan government is expected to receive 8% of the project's revenue.

Original project started in March 1995 when inaugural memorandum of understanding between the governments of Turkmenistan and Pakistan for a pipline project was signed. In August 1996, the Central Asia Gas Pipeline, Ltd. (CentGas) consortium for construction of pipeline, led by Unocal was formed. On 27 October 1997 CentGas incorporated in formal signing ceremonies in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan by several international oil companies along with the Government of Turkmenistan. In January 1998 the Taliban, selecting CentGas over a Brazilian competitor, signed an agreement that allowed the proposed project to proceed. In June 1998, Russian Gazprom relinquishes its 10% stake in project. Unocal withdrawn from the consortium on 8 December 1998.

The new deal on the pipeline was signed on 27 December 2002 by the leaders of Turkmenistan, Afghanistan and Pakistan and in 2005 Asian Development Bank submitted the final version of feasibility study designed by British company Penspen. Signing the agreement was made possible by the invasion of Afghanistan by United States military forces a year prior, which overthrew the Taliban government controlling most of Afghanistan. Building the pipeline was cited by some critics of the Bush administration as a motivation for the invasion. Some people have even said that if you take a map of U.S. military bases in Afghanistan and a map of the proposed pipeline they are very close together, suggesting that bases are positioned to protect natural gas interests. However, since then the project has essentially stalled; construction of the Turkmen part was supposed to start in 2006, but the overall feasibility is questionable since the southern part of the Afghan section runs through territory which continues to be under de facto Taliban control.

Seems to me the Administration didn't plan well enough for their Afghanistan invasion, or didn't think people would actually fight AGAINST the invasion.

Mancow Interviews.

The interview didn't end too well. But the progress had been made. Congratulation Kevin.

All we can do now is email the show and offer more requests for interviews covering this topic. I proposed David RAy Griffin and SAnder Hicks.

Hopefully Mancow gets himself addicted to this topic and continues to cover it. Progress. And more cracks are openning in the Main Stream Media!!!

That was hilarious!

"How dare he use his intellect on us!", Too pathetic.

The Lionel radio show bang on

The Lionel radio show last night was bang on questioning what happened on 9/11.

You can hear the pod-cast (Hour One) here:

I listen to him almost every night, and Lionel regularly challenges his audience and MSM to ask questions and be skeptical of the 9/11 government’s account.

never listened to

Lionel before. Great hour. He is very informed about 9/11
recommend catching that hour if you have time.

Agreed -- Lionel is great

Have been listening to his podcasts nightly. Witty, funny guy -- and his approach to questioning 9-11 is refreshingly non-dogmatic; very effective for reaching newbies

Mancow shows his "great" debating skills

Where did you learn those excellent debating skills Mancow?! Mancows class on debating must have taught him to declare someone is a loon when they make a good point. Ah-hem, I believe a fair debate would have not only declared Barrett the winner, but would not have compromised his ability to speak.

America is obnoxious

and that is why the world hates us.

America is not obnoxious

and that is why the world loves us. They love us for our artists. They hate us for our politicians. All this politics is making me crazy . It's all a bunch of words by a barrel of suit monkeys. Who has more fun than people.....monkeys.

They Hate Us

because we covertly installed dictators who let us steal their countries natural resources for their own personal gain. If that does not work. We bomb the hell the out them and call it spreading democracy.
