Deep Events




I'm under no pressure to file Anders Breivik into a neat file of insanity. I raised my concerns at the time of his killing spree that too many questions remained unanswered and indeed the general ineptness of the police to resolve some of the most basic criminal investigation issues still remains. 

It is for this reason that I find Professor Peter Dale Scott's use of the deep events and deep politics language as helpful as keeps it open ended without the pressure to choose a hasty answer with too many weak points. If I were that way inclined I'd pick up the first two bit Georgetown Professor with a CFR badge and an ugly Israel first mantra and a steady track record for jeering on profitable war. Guys like that are two a penny an often too low down the food chain to know they're pampered and paid shills.

First time I've come across the Pinay Circle in this interview. Here's the blurb:

Peter Dale Scott, a former Canadian diplomat and English Professor at the University of California, Berkeley, is a poet, writer, and researcher. He was born in Montreal in 1929. An anti-war speaker during the Vietnam and Gulf Wars, he was a co-founder of the Peace and Conflict Studies Program at UC Berkeley, and of the Coalition on Political Assassinations (COPA). He is the author of several books including, The War Conspiracy (1972), The Iran-Contra Connection (1987),Cocaine Politics: Drugs, Armies, and the CIA in Central America (1991, 1998), Drugs Oil and War (2003), The Road to 9/11 (2007), and The War Conspiracy: JFK, 9/11, and the Deep Politics of War (2008). In the first hour we revisit Breivik's attack on Norway. We discuss his possible motivations, his connections and his alignment with Nick Greger. Peter explains why he refers to these attacks as "deep events" and gives examples of other systemic deep events. We'll discuss false flag attacks as a strategy to bring in a new agenda. Peter points out similarities to Operation Gladio and Breivik's model of attack.
