André Vltchek on BBC lies, Chomsky, and more!

Tuesday, April 2nd, 11 a.m. to noon Central (9-10 Pacific) on NoLiesRadio.org (then archived here a few hours after broadcast).
André Vltcheck is a novelist, journalist, filmmaker, and world citizen. A specialist at unmasking the lies of empire, André Vltcheck recently published a terrific article explaining that contrary to Western media propaganda, Zimbabwe's capital Harare is a reasonably nice, liveable city:

Harare: Is It Really the Worst City on Earth?

This interview features my debate with Vltcheck on Noam Chomsky. (Vltcheck is a friend of Chomsky and an unmitigated admirer, while I'm, shall we say, mitigated; I find Chomsky oddly reticent about the very crimes whose exposure would bring down the empire - 9/11 and the JFK assassination being two major examples).

Vltcheck has done excellent work exposing two of the empire's biggest US-taxpayer-funded holocausts: The CIA-orchestrated torture-murder of roughly one million Indonesians in 1965, and the presumably CIA-instigated slaughter of as many as ten million people in Central Africa during the past two decades - especially Congo, after CIA-puppet Paul Kagame's forces shot down the plane carrying the presidents of Rwanda and Burundi, then implemented a psy-op to trigger what became the so-called "Hutu-Tutsi genocide" (in fact, a Western genocide against Central Africans whose purpose was to loot their mineral resources...most of the victims were Congolese victims of Kagame and other Western puppets, not Tutsi victims of Hutu as portrayed in Western media propaganda.)

For more information on the genocide in Central Africa, check out Wayne Madsen's book Jaded Tasks and his article “Genocide and Covert Operations in Africa 1993-1999.”

André Vltcheck's books include Western Terror: From Potosí to Baghdad, Indonesia: Archipelago of Fear, and Oceana.

  1. Thank you Kevin for this very informative interview. I agree with you totally about getting the record straight re the murders of JFK, MLK, and RFK. Chomsky imo is indeed part of the controlled opposition and a very, very important gatekeeper. I don't like him period ... there is something askew about him. I saw a youTube of him dismissing JFK's death and 911 ... the guy is bent. I won't miss his passing.

  2. Nice the see vltcheck didn't pull a Juan Cole and was more respectful to 911 truth. Although I disagree with his focusing on only external empire issues, he seemed much more reasonable than most leftists, who go nuts or are totally clueless about 911 (chomsky, rothschild, david corn, amy goodman, chris hedges, tariq ali, juan cole, palast, ...)
    His point that Chomsky has done good work regarding 'external empire' issues is certainly true, and one cannot reasonably and fairly deny it. But he has done harm to the Palestinian cause by denying the power of Israel in controlling US policy in the Mideast, and also by denying 911 and JFK. Since many look up to him, he influences their thinking in these matters. In fact, people often use Chomsky as an excuse to not pursue 911.
    And vltcheck's point that Chomsky's work has given intellectual ammunition to those affected by empire externally is weak. They don't need chomsky to be telling them they are getting screwed, they are living it daily and know first hand.
