Kurt Richard Haskell, “Underwear Bomber Witness”, was on board Northwest Airlines Flight 253, the target of a failed al-Qaeda bombing attempt on Christmas Day, December 25, 2009. He will be with us discussing how to spot a ‘false flag’ – which is a covert operation designed to deceive in such a way as to appear as though it is being carried out by entities, groups, or nations other than those who actually planned and executed it.
Kurt Haskell is a retired trial attorney who graduated from Thomas Cooley Law School in 1999. On Christmas Day 2009, Kurt and his wife Lori were passengers on Northwest Flight 253. On such flight Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the “underwear bomber” allegedly tried to destroy the plane with a bomb hidden in his underwear. Although the bomb did not detonate, it caused a fire, an emergency landing and numerous laws and procedures to be implemented including the widespread dissemination of body scanning machines at US airports. After such event, Kurt made international headlines by exposing the false flag operation by providing an eyewitness account of the defendant being escorted onto the flight without a passport. During the criminal trial process, Kurt discovered that undercover US Government agents had provided Abdulmutallab with an intentionally defective bomb that lacked a detonator in order to stage a fake terrorist attack. Subsequently, and hoping to change the US for the better, Kurt ran for US Congress in 2012 in Michigan’s 7th District. Kurt won the primary but lost to incumbent Tim Walberg 53% to 43% in the general election. In 2014, Kurt and Lori decided to escape the US and moved to Costa Rica where they continue to reside.
