Behind the Headlines: Who is 'Jihadi John'? Interview with Jon Ryman

Jon Ryman
This week on Behind the Headlines we spoke once again with Jon Ryman. Jon has published two video documentaries on the so-called terror masterminds Samantha Lewthwaite (aka White Widow) and Abdel Bary (aka at one point 'Jihadi John'). Egyptian born British rapper Bary was initially identified as 'Jihadi John', the black-clad figure in last year's spate of ISIS 'beheading' videos. One month ago however, the Washington Post claimed that Jihadi John was in fact Mohammed Emwazi, a Kuwait-born British man in his mid 20s from who grew up in West London.

Most interesting in these cases is the fact that all three of these alleged 'high profile' terrorists were well-known to British and US intelligence services with their families also having extensive links to the British and US establishments. In the case of the 'official' (for now) Jihadi John - Mohammed Emwazi - this "kind and gentle" computer programmer from London was harrassed for several years by British security Services. Emwazi is the subject of Jon's latest video documentary.

So what's really going on here? Are we witnessing a bizzare theatre constructed by Western governments, intelligence services with the mainstream media serving as stage hands?

economic collapse
Our guest on the March 28th, 2015, broadcast of The Truth Perspective was Fernando "Ferfal" Aguirre. Fernando was a firsthand witness of the many tumultuous changes that occurred in the early 2000's when Argentina saw a collapse in its economy. Finding a whole new and dangerous set of circumstances under which he was living, he had to find new approaches to the challenges of daily living, providing for his family, and keeping them in safety.

Fernando is the author of The Modern Survival Manual: Surviving the Economic Collapse, which is an account of his many experiences and the insights he has gleaned from them. He is also well known for his Blog, Survival in Argentina, where he regularly posts information about what he sees in the world today, as well as daily tips and reviews of survival products: http://ferfal.blogspot.com/

Behind the Headlines: Interview with Charles Bausman, Russia Insider

Charles Bausman
This week on Behind the Headlines we spoke with Charles Bausman, founder and Editor-in-Chief of Russia Insider. Charles has worked in finance in Russia since the early 1990s. Noticing strong anti-Russian bias in Western media that didn't square with the country they knew, Charles and some friends pooled together last summer to create their hard-hitting news portal, and have recently launched a crowdfunding appeal on Kickstarter as they seek to grow their not-for-profit project to topics beyond Russia.

The Truth Perspective: The Ides of March

caesar
For the anniversary of the assassination of Julius Caesar on March 15, our hosts discussed the question, "What does it take to lead a country?" If Caesar were alive today, what would he do, and how would he do it? How should we interpret the facts of Caesar's life?

The discussion continues from the previous week's interview with Tom Stevenson about his book on Julius Caesar.

Following this, we discussed some current events: the latest ISIS revelations, Venezuela as a 'national security' threat and then the pedophile scandals in both the US and UK.

Behind the Headlines: Historical Revisionism in the 20th and 21st centuries

Sott Talk Radio logo
Everyone has heard the term "those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it." If that maxim is true, and if it is to be useful to everyone, then it is essential that we have access to an accurate account of history and the reasons why historical events occurred.

Most people would agree that war should be avoided if possible, yet in the 239 years since the American declaration of independence, the USA has been at war for 229 of those years. Were all of those wars necessary? If that isn't a repeating historical pattern, we don't know what is.

The First World War was called "the war to end all wars" and yet, just 20 years later, an even worse conflagration consumed the Eurasian continent, killing 65 million people.

The phrase "never again" is most often heard in reference to the genocidal policies of the Nazis towards the Jews of Germany and Poland, yet today a record number of Jews are fleeing Europe for Israel in the face of mounting anti-semitism.

Apart from 4 military assaults on sovereign nations, the deaths of at least 2 million people and the creation of an extremely instable security situation in many parts of the globe, the almost 15-year-long US-led war on terror has created a distinct anti-Muslim climate in many Western nations that bears many of the hallmarks of the first waves of anti-Jewish sentiment in Nazi Germany.

So if we have an accurate understanding of history, why does it appear to continue to repeat? Is there something wrong with our official historical narrative?

Behind the Headlines airs live this Sunday, 08 March 2015, from 3-5pm EST / 12pm-2pm PST / 7-9pm UTC / 8-10pm CET.
