From Guy Fawkes to 9/11, 400 Years of State Sponsored Terror
Princeton Educated U.S. Historian tours Britain
This Guy Fawkes night sees the start of a controversial UK speaking tour
by a Princeton educated American writer. He argues that Muslims are more
the victims of terrorism than the perpetrators and that historically the
state's enemies of the day have been scapegoated as terrorists.
Webster Tarpley argues that Guy Fawkes was a victim of Lord Cecils
anti-Catholic sting operation and that similar tactics are
still being used by Western intelligence services and military today.
Since the events of 9/11 and 7/7, evidence has trickled out that
contradicts the official version of events. Many people now believe these
incidents were in fact war provocations, orchestrated from within the
Western military industrial complex.
The press and public have been left confused and disorientated by a lack
of resolution to some of the biggest stories of our age.
Terrorology is a growing discipline that seeks to bring
academic rigour and reasoned argument to analysing this highly emotive
Throughout his two books The Unauthorised Biography of G. H.
W.Bush and 911 Synthetic Terror Made in USA, Tarpley
links the U.S. state with organised crime. He scours the world for answers
to the contradictions surrounding 9/11 and his controversial conclusions
are gathering support, even amongst eyewitnesses and relatives of the
He finds hard evidence for the roots of 9/11 within the Western
establishment, which he refers to as a 'rogue network' embedded in the
secret state and military apparatus.
Amongst the unanswered questions Tarpley addresses are why…
The US Air Force for up to one-and-a-half hours failed to
intercept hijacked airliners.
The Pentagon crash site’ was inconsistent with the
impact of an airliner.
Put options’ on United Airlines and American
Airlines shares placed before 9/11 were traced back to the Executive
Director of the CIA.
Building 7 at the World Trade Centre in Manhattan
collapsed at freefall speed without being hit by a plane.
And he goes on to ask, is the War on Terror really an
Orwellian programme designed to take away ordinary peoples hard won
Tarpley's analysis comes as music to the ears for the growing number of
Britons uncomfortable about the suspension of habeas corpus and the racist
overtones of internment and demonisation of Muslims.

Webster Griffin Tarpley is an activist and historian best known for his
George Bush: The Unauthorized Biography (1992), which has become an
An expert on international terrorism with decades of experience, he
directed the study Chi ha ucciso Aldo Moro? (Who Killed Aldo Moro?) which
was commissioned by a member of the Italian government and published in
Rome in 1978. [Aldo Moro was an ex-prime minister of Italy who was
murdered by the "Red Brigades," who were ultimately found out to be a
front for a fascist state terror group.]
Against Oligarchy, a collection of Tarpley's essays and speeches, appeared
on the Internet in 1996. He also wrote Surviving the Cataclysm (1999), an
analysis of the world financial crisis.
In 2005, Tarpley's ‘9/11 Synthetic Terror: Made in USA’ gained
a following and is now going into a fourth edition. On October 7, 2006,
Amazon.com's top non-fiction book reviewer, Robert David Steele, called it
"the strongest of the 770+ books I have reviewed here at Amazon."
Tarpley has appeared on CNN Crossfire, FOX News, Charlie Rose, talk radio,
and cable access television across North America.

Hoffman: It's so clear. What possible motive would there be someone to go making these vicious characterizations of these really well known peace activists like Cindy Sheehan… When people like [Cosmos], Arabesque, and Wolsey report on it, to be viciously attacked by Tarpley with all these ridiculous accusations of COINTELPRO…? Very entertaining to watch, very vivid, just lurid—it's ridiculous. It's all just completely concocted, he makes it sound like you, and Wolsey and these people that he's saying are COINTELPRO just popped up in the last year is just an utter lie. I think it's a really good test of whether people are really in this in the benefit of our movement: are we going to tolerate this sort of thing? Where are the voices of the alleged leaders of the 9/11 truth movement about this and similar incidents? I think the silence from some quarters is deafening.
He's no "leader" of ours any more:
Webster Tarpley: Your services will no longer be required
On August 29th, 2007, Webster Tarpley issued the Kennebunkport Warning. It claimed "massive evidence" suggested that a US-Sponsored false flag terror attack would be orchestrated in "the coming months". The original document listed signatures by Cindy Sheehan, Ann Wright and others.
Or did it?
At least five anti-war activists including Cindy Sheehan denied signing the document and an ensuing controversy erupted. While those who denied signing the document were civil and cordial, those who created the warning offered insults, accusations, and divisive behavior. Later, those investigating the affair were targeted with accusations and insults along with false allegations that they "opposed" the Kennebunkport warning and "worked for the Ford Foundation". Charges of incivility against the warning promoters remain unacknowledged.
While many offered their take on the controversy, a "9/11 truth leader" responded without naming names or taking sides; giving advice on how to deal with disinformation, infiltration, and agent provocateurs. Jim Hoffman offered his thoughts on Cosmos' radio show:
"It's so clear. What possible motive would there be someone to go making these vicious characterizations of these really well known peace activists like Cindy Sheehan… When people like [Cosmos], Arabesque, and Wolsey report on it, to be viciously attacked by Tarpley with all these ridiculous accusations of COINTELPRO…?
