by | Oct 29, 2019 | Podcasts | 30 comments

The Dissembler-in-Chief took to Twitter this past weekend to let the world know that “Something very big has just happened!” We now know that that something was a daring special forces raid that ended in the death of Osama bin Laden! . . . Or is that Abu Musab al-Zarqawi? Or maybe Abu Omar al-Baghdadi? No, no, it was Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi! Honest! We took DNA evidence before we threw him in the sea! Find out about the unlikely story of Baghdadi’s umpteenth death in this timely edition of The Corbett Report podcast.

  1. The first thought that crossed my mind when I heard on the radio that Al-BadGuyDi had been killed was, “Oh, that name sounds familiar, I must duck-duck-go him when I get home to find how many times he has been killed before? – If James doesn’t beat me to it” 🙂

    • My thought too when I saw the news. “…how many times he has been killed before?”
      Glad Corbett sewed all these past stories together which highlights the government’s playbook modus operandi.

      It is very convenient that Al-BadGuyDi got blown to smithereens.
      I guess the CIA playbook has that “no body” script in their Chapter on “Making up and killing fake bogeymen.”

  2. Wonderful, as ever, James.

    Pepe Escobar has a nice piece on this too:


    He doesn’t take this apart as fiercely as you, but I expect he wants to be able to publish in various journals. He does plenty of wink-wink, nudge-nudge though 🙂

    His conclusion:

    ‘The “died as a dog” movie can also be interpreted as the liquidation of a formerly useful asset that was a valued component of the gift that keeps on giving, the never-ending Global War on Terror.’

    Which rather similar to yours.

    • Actually, the whole Bagdadi thing is a theatre piece to give Trump a victory as the US MIC/CIA have to admit a defeat in Syria, wherein the Russia/Syria/Iran alliance is completing the defeat of the US/Saudi/Qatar/Isreal funded insurgency.

      There is a victory for the CIA here too; the recent “release” of lots of their ISIS proxy forces from the prisons in NE Syria. Thus, they can transform into another terror monster and keep the whole forever-war running along.

  3. Anyone have a link or a screenshot of the 2006 WAPO article mentioned in here about how ISIS was a psy-op?

  4. The Oil in Syria

    President Trump’s Special Sunday 9am (Oct 27) Announcement
    (25 minute mark)Trump says: “…The Oil is so valuable!… …we should be able to take some also….”
    Then around the 39 minute mark, Trump again talks about securing the oil. “…Now I will secure the oil, that happens to be in a certain part. But that’s tremendous money involved…”

    • October 29, 2019 – Zero Hedge
      Via The Saker blog,
      Translated by Leo, bold and italics added for emphasis.
      Russian Defense Minister Publishes Evidence Of US Oil Smuggling From Syria
      (Aerial photos along with story)
      “Neither in international law, nor in American legislation itself – there is not and cannot be a single legal task for the American troops to protect and defend the hydrocarbon deposits of Syria from Syria itself and its own people,”
      the representative of the Defense Ministry concluded.

  5. Don’t know about you, but I’m bursting with anticipation for the movie release. I hope it’ll be as exciting as watching the dour heroine pace and sulk in Zero Dark Thirty.

  6. Hi James

    Download MP4 link not working.

  7. I want to be critical of one thing. In the older reports and now repeated.
    The name issue of this Baghdadi guy.
    As far as I remember there exists a name giving tradition, especially among deeply religious muslims or fundamentalists and supposed ones like this guy.
    When the first son is born the men change their names to
    Abu name of son
    Abu meaning father, so the new name is now father of [name son]
    al Baghdadi probably only means ‘from Baghdad’ or ‘the Baghdadian’.

    So therefore multiple people with the name Baghdadi.
    Depending on the frequency of the custom and the name Bakr there obviously could exist thousands (or only one) of Abu Bakr al Baghdadis.
    So yes, them – somewhat honoring or admiring – using his new name instead of always one and the supposed only old name is purposefully idiotic.

    the dailymail link Watching the Baghdadi raid in the Situation Room
    does not work for me
    ah and the wiki link for Obama neither

    I also found it curious that the only source for the Russian statement I could find is from Reuters and sputnik (RIA)
    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-mideast-crisis-baghdadi-russia-commen-idUSKBN1X60J4 (those two people have no tweets regarding this, was apparently not that important)
    https://sputniknews.com/world/201910271077161480-russian-mod-does-not-have-reliable-information-on-us-operation-in-syria-to-neutralize-baghdadi/ (the one you linked)
    This site (never heard of before) was the only one who has a link to a video statement (in Russian, no subtitles or translation so can’t understand/say anything about it)
    “…Kremlin-controlled Russian state media shot down President Trump’s announcement, with headlines that read: “The Russian Defense Ministry does not believe in al-Baghdadi’s liquidation.”…” linking to https://www.vesti.ru/videos/show/vid/815486/

  8. sherry.a says:
    (California situation) “… scratching my head… …‘this is the new normal’….”

  9. Am I the only one that thinks Trumps is trolling a little. The way he gave details about the mission. Suppose you look at movie and the president talks as a little boy who tells about his father having done I-don’t-know-what. Do you think it is a good movie, realistic? Same people that puppet Greta Thunberg seem to be directing here as well.
    What will happen to the men that executed the mission?

  10. Sherry.a, that California lifestyle will be even harder if what the Liberty Report is reporting today, should it be implemented and goes through into practice. California will be a top pick for the roll out.

    Dan McAdams and Dr.Paul discuss it thoroughly. The new new normal.


  11. Had to get outta Syria in a hurry to avoid them crazy Turks?
    Thinking about returning for that precious oil, now things have quieted down again? How to shake off the bad publicity after abandoning the Kurds?
    Hey! How about resurrecting that Al Bagdaddy bogeyman for another blockbuster Daring Special Forces Night Raid through Enemy Territory? Yeah! Team America! Hell Yeah!

  12. Since the 2016 election, it has become apparent to me that when something comes out of Washington D.C. it is often theater. Sad but it appears to be the case.

  13. Amid so much confusion one thing is certain in all this ; Bakr al-Baghdadi’s wife is Baghmomi, and she calls him, affectionately, daddi; or maybe big-daddy, or al-bad-daddi, oh never mind

    • I laughed pretty good, repeatedly. Good phrasing. Nice close.

  14. Is it even actually possible for them to be so bad at lying/deception/propaganda?
    It seems like they’d have to be borderline retarded.

    I have to wonder if it’s some kind of strategy such as the “so ridiculous it must be true” strategy, or some kind of secret society code that doesn’t permit them to produce lies/propaganda of a caliber that could fool intelligent men. They’re only allowed to dupe the dumbest of the dumb masses — justified as a penalty for wallowing in stupidity when (in their mind) the path to illumination has been paved for all.

    • She speaks well, comfortably and focused with a pleasant approach, like you said “extremely poised and articulate speech”.

      In November 2010, an article came out entitled:
      “Top 5 Most Personally Safe Countries”…with Syria #5

      Note: It seems based on a 2009 Gallup Poll “Do you feel safe walking alone at night?”

      The article might had been a government PR piece. I don’t know.

      • Nice find MBP. Some time has passed since than. The gathering storm and the importance diplomatically of this
        ” PR ” or maybe veiled address and proclamation is of great significance. Why? The proceeding 9 years of hell that rained down on Syria. Maybe the French actors failed to deliver. The American Zionist actors sure delivered something. This need for museums should work if it educates the masses of a history that should not get repeated.
        There was a question offered up about the money power and tied with ” UNESCO putting on the red light.The Queen of Syria had a diplomatic retort. I thought it an eloquent dodge.Globleize is a tough language to comprehend.
        I will offer she may of had an ear piece, for the diplomatic importance time has shown it to have been. Did you notice the vulture LeGaurde in the front row?
        This was an interesting find and I wonder why it hasn’t been memory-holed? I would like to ask an historian , like Corbett, MacGregor, Docharty to decipher what act this scene is in the play ” Syria 2020″

        • Thank you MBP. I have so little understanding of Syria. I have meet a few Syrian refugees here in my little city and all have shown to me kindness and a complete lack of acute pregidious. Very open and with an worldly attitude. However Im like Will Rogers, I never meet an immigrant i didn’t like. The food was fantastic during holidays. Thanks for the informational link. Fascinating WW1 info.

      • HRS,

        linked article looks like government PR template.
        Singapore no. 1, a state with draconian laws and fines, police state, caning is legalized…

        I would rather feel unsafe.

  15. Something big has happened – WW2 version
    “Suicide of Hitler in Bunker”
    Hitler was still alive after WW2.
    The burned body was of a woman.
    There were multiple witnesses seeing him during and after the
    fall of Berlin. There was a trace from Berlin to Argentina.
    Source: “Hunting Hitler”.

    Many Nazis also joined the CIA and NASA,
    while others were performing tortures in Chile.

    • The pilot of the plane which flew Hitler out of Berlin wrote a book about it some years ago. Staff of Juan Peron reported seeing Hitler after the war as did staff at a hotel in Argentina. I was told by someone I know whose father was Russian and very political (he was imprisoned for criticising Stalin) that they knew in Russia that Hitler had escaped and they had the skull and knew it was a woman.

  16. That’s one of the most interesting things about music.
    A song, or style of music, that speaks directly to the core of one person — perhaps even profoundly affecting them — can be highly unappealing and unmoving in the ears of another person. Even in the case of two people who otherwise have very similar/compatible interests & tastes.
    There are obviously certain songs & sound combinations that have very wide appeal (nearly universal appeal in some cases), but certain songs & music styles are like a key-keyhole thing.

  17. An interview emerged in 2018 of an interview with Benezir Bhutto in 2007 not long before she was assassinated. In the interview she was talking about Osama Bin Laden, who of course she knew, having died several years earlier of kidney disease. But of course Barack Obama stated that he had been killed by navy seals in 2010. Those same navy seals who not long after were all together in a helicopter which crashed and all were killed. Both al Baghdadi and Osama Bin Laden were buried at sea according to Muslim tradition according to the MSM. Except it isn’t, Muslims believe in burying people in the ground. Mmmm. Obviously there’s nothing suspicious about any of this and I, like James, am just a wicked conspiracy theorist.

  18. Lots of great information here…

    UPDATE – November 13, 2019
    Interview 1494 – Destroying the ISIL Myth on The Last American Vagabond


    via The Last American Vagabond:
    The US government armed Osama Bin Laden; it armed Saddam Hussain with chemical weapons to be used against Iran in 1980; it armed the very groups that later became ISIS. Yet we are sold an entirely different yarn by the US government and its lap dog MSM. Today I have invited James Corbett on the show to very clearly, and once and for all, demonstrate who is actually responsible for the creation and the rise of ISIS.
