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.

Pentagon-Hollywood Collaboration Database Excerpts

Published July 21st 2016

The Department of Defense maintains a database summarising its collaboration with Hollywood productions. The master list for this database was released to me two years ago as the DOD Film List and since then I have obtained a handful of entries. Getting a little more creative I asked for entries on over a dozen films and today got a response with details on Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Contact, Tears of the Sun, Indiana Jones, Deja Vu and others. This provides new evidence of the Pentagon rewriting movies to suit their agenda, sometimes substantially altering the scripts in the process.

ClandesTime 082 – The Foreigner

Published May 29th 2016

The Foreigner stars Jackie Chan and former James Bond Pierce Brosnan, and is directed by two-time Bond director Martin Campbell. In February the film-makers blew up a bus in central London in a sequence that was spookily reminiscent of the 7/7 London bombings of 2005. To see if this similarity was a concern for the government agencies who approved and assisted The Foreigner filming in London, I filed a series of FOIA requests. In this episode we explore the responses, including evidence that the FOIA laws are applied with a criminal level of inconsistency. We round off by asking whether the producers of this film and the government officials who assisted them are guilty of glorifying terrorism via simulations like this.

ClandesTime 072 – The Pentagon in Hollywood: The Enemy Image

Published March 13th 2016

The philosophy of Carl Schmitt asserts that for a state to be identifiable and legitimate it has to employ an enemy image – the perception of a threat from the Other. In this episode we explore whether this philosophy has been adopted by the Pentagon as part of their operations in the entertainment industry. I conclude that there is a major exception – namely China – who the Pentagon do not want to be part of the enemy image portrayed by Hollywood, and speculate as to the reasons why this is.
