Webster Tarpley's Hoax: The Kennebunkport Warning

He's touring the UK, supposedly helping 9/11 Truth, but watch out--the man has a history of spreading disinformation....if you're planning to go to Tarpley's Guy Fawkes/911 speech read this first, and demand answers.

From, as written by Jones Jones:

On Monday, August 27 2007, Webster Tarpley, in association with Bruce Marshall and Craig Hill, released a document containing a dire warning of an imminent false flag attack to be launched by Dick Cheney. This warning was said to be based on "massive evidence" and purported to be signed by Cindy Sheehan, Cynthia McKinney and others.

When asked to document some of the "massive evidence" that the warning was supposedly based on, Tarpley provided an article from July 13, 2005 ironically titled "U.S. Terror Attack — Ninety Days at Most".

When asked to provide some evidence of the claimed signatories, the following image was provided and it was then announced that Cynthia McKinney hadn't actually signed the Warning but had verbally given her endorsement of it.

(See alledged document here:

Then word started spreading that several of the other claimed signatories did not sign the Warning either, and that their signatures had been misappropriated.

An email from Dahlia Wasfi:

I didn't sign this.

I don't know about the validity of this "warning," but the people who put this list together were dishonest about signatories. They took our signatures for something else and put it on this. Very weird.

Love, Dahlia

all i can say is that the entire thing is shady

Official statement from Dahlia S. Wasfi, MD:

Re: "The Kennebunkport Warning"

The Bush administration has proven that sacrificing lives of Americans and other innocents around the world is a price worth paying in the name of criminal corporate profit. Dr. Phil says that the best predictor of future behavior is past behavior. As such, it is certainly within the realm of possibility for the neo-conservative junta in Washington to launch another war based on lies. However, I do not have "the smoking gun," if you will, to prove it.

I signed a statement in Kennebunkport to endorse the impeachment of Dick Cheney, but my signature has been used on this "Warning" without my consent. While I was humbled to have my signature misappropriated with such prominent voices as Cindy Sheehan, Cynthia McKinney, and Jamilla El-Shafei, none of us signed that document.

Therefore, please contact the statement's distributors for information on their evidence.

With you in the struggle until justice is served,


Instead of seeking to clarify the matter and resolve it in a civil manner, Tarpley urged everyone to move past these "wretched individuals" who were "lying in an appalling fashion" and to keep spreading the document far and wide:

Webster Tarpley responds:

Please get organizations from the peace, impeachment, anti-globalization, 9/11 truth, and other movements, as well as high-profile personalities, celbrities, etc., to endorse, support, distribute, and publicize the Kennebunkport Warning. Some of the signers, under the obvious threats of totalitarian forces, are lying in appalling fashion about what they signed and if they signed. You can see for yourself from the facsimile who signed. We need to move beyond these wretched individuals to build support for this mobilization alert as we enter a very dangerous weekend. Please make a special effort to gather support.

Webster Tarpley

After circulating the above message, Tarpley rallied support from Jim Fetzer, who published a press release to announce his group's full support and joined Tarpey's radio show to laud the Kennebunkport Warning. Later on the same broadcast, Tarpley agreed with Bruce Marshall that the contested signatories were lying, perhaps due to being threatened. They also agreed that anyone questioning the validity of any part of their endeavor must be a "mole".

An mp3 of this broadcast will be made available shortly.

Craig Hill

Tarpley's derogatory statements regarding the alleged signatories were tame compared to the truckload of abuse heaped on the women by Craig Hill. From one of his responses to an inquiry regarding the Warning:

"The hoax lies in the lies of the signers"
"the stupefying behavior of so-called peace activists who seem bent on making sure disaster strikes again"
"Dahlia Wasafi is the original instigator of the campaign to destroy the messenger and the message of the Kennebunkport Warning"
"Dahlia is worse even than a liar, she is either part of the war effort she claims she denounces or an idiot out of her depth."
"Unlike Dahlia and Cindy, Bruce doesn't play gotcha or switcheroo with those he thought were natural allies."
"they are the ones of dubious integrity"
"Cindy's got a lot of 'splainin to do"
"The hoax here consists of a rally, essentially, by some of the signers to protect Dahlia's family by amazingly, clumsily, arrogantly and stupidly destroying the credibility of a patriot who is simply trying to do what they have not the guts or brains to do on their own."
"the bitterly dubious integrity of Cindy Sheehan or her crapulous judgment"

In another response, one of Hill's amazing run-on sentences builds into a laudatory shout out to Judy Wood's thoroughly debunked spacebeam 'hypothesis':

It's all right there in PNAC, released in September 2000: The catastrophic catalyzing event, the overthrow of Saddam and reorganization of Iraq, the control of what was then $7 trillion of energy resources in the region, which means control of Iranian oil as well, the encirclement of Russia and China, and the reestablishment of SAC as the newest branch of our bloated military, Space Command, with the immediate aim of the militarization of space via nuclear weapons and other exotic dangers orbiting Earth, pointing down and controlling entire societies under threat they, too, may suffer that which Dr Judy Wood persuasively suggests occurred in NYC on 9/11: A demonstration showing the world's leaders what will happen to their cities unless they accede to the domination of Neocon Amerika.

A Statement from Four of the Alleged Signatories:

Each of us were approached during the rally at the Kennebunkport event on August 25, 2007, to sign a statement calling for the immediate impeachment of Vice President Dick Cheney. Since then, the statement has been altered and posted on the internet, making it appear as if we have evidence that this administration will carry out a "false-flag terror operation."

None of us have such evidence, and therefore, none of us signed a statement stating that we do. We wish the authors of the document well in continuing much needed investigations of all aspects of 9/11.

I DEFINITELY did NOT sign a paper with the Kennebunk Warning physically on it.
I find it interesting that the top of the sheet I signed is covered up in the .jpg that was provided by Mr. Marshall.
I would not have knowingly signed the "warning" as A. I am not, as previously mentioned any sort of leader, and B. I have no such evidence whatever. I personally feel that while the Bush administration is certainly MORALLY capable of orchestrating a 911 false flag attack, and that there are definitely unanswered questions about 911, I have seen no evidence which proves it to me. In short, while I am very committed to finding the truth, I'm not "there" yet, and as I stated above, I have no evidence relating to a Iran 'false flag' event whatever, though I certainly would not put it past them.

The perpetrators of The Kennebunkport Warning insist that these women are of extremely low moral character but urge everyone to keep spreading the document with their names attached.

The LaRouche Connection

Strangely enough, all three of the main promoters of The Kennebunkport Warning have connections to bizarre political cult of Lyndon LaRouche.

Webster Tarpley was a member of the LaRouche inner circle - a high ranking LaRouchian operative for nearly 20 years. He was the founder of the LaRouche movement's european branch, served as LaRouche's intelligence chief for many years, was the President of LaRouche's Schiller Institute, a regular host on The LaRouche Connection cable television show and even ran for Senate on the LaRouche platform. Many in the Vermont Green Party have claimed that both Marshall and Craig's campaigns were stealth LaRouchian campaigns - the kind the LaRouche movement was notorious for running in the 80s and 90s using the Democratic party. On 911blogger, Bruce Marshall has testified to his abiding admiration for the LaRouche ideology: you can read it here.


This report is based on a collaborative investigation and is especially indebted to the intrepid work of Colonel Jenny Sparks and Arabesque.
