Exercises and False Flag Terror – Tom Secker on The Mind Renewed

Published February 5th 2017

Julian of The Mind Renewed invited me back onto his show to discuss the link between false flag terrorism and training exercises. While this is usually talked about in a very simplistic and historically ignorant way, the method of using a drill or training exercise to cover for a black operation is a real tactic. However its popularity among conspiracy theorists raises the question of whether it is now being used as a means of distracting those who are sceptical of the government accounts of terrorist atrocities. From the 7/7 London bombings to the Anders Breivik massacre to the Boston marathon bombing the emergence of rumours or stories of the attacks coinciding with a training exercise have been seized on as providing proof that the government are (a) lying and (b) secretly behind the attacks. In this conversation we put that idea to the test, recounting some of the history of this tactic being used, the more recent examples that have been interpreted in the same way, and this idea’s appearance in numerous state-sponsored films and TV series.

ClandesTime 092 – Conspiracy Theories: The False Flag Exercise Hypothesis

Published November 20th 2016

9/11. The 7/7 London Bombings. The Boston Marathon. The Paris Massacre. This episode we take a look at the false flag exercise theory, which has become the default alternative media interpretation of these events. We examine the theory’s history in military deception techniques, its origins as a popular conspiracy theory and how it has been encouraged in state sponsored popular culture.

Spirit Cooking Election Day Special – Tom Secker on PPR

Published November 11th 2016

Pearse invited Aaron and myself onto his show on the evening of the Presidential election. I, for one, welcome our new Orange Overlord but when we taped this the result was not yet known. This conversation got a bit abstract as we didn’t discuss the candidates much at all, but instead had a good time looking into some of the weirder elements of the run-up to the election and the broader social trends around our current political dialogue.
