Hidden story behind Jesse Ventura & Piers Morgan’s CNN clash over Obama CIA ties

by Alfred Lambremont Webre

This article is part of a series on the lifelong relationship between the grandparents and parents of Barack H. Obama, and Obama himself, and the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), and numerous anomalies, including prior identification in time, using quantum access, surrounding Mr. Obama’s accession to the U.S. Presidency in 2008.

On April 4, 2011, this reporter Alfred Lambremont Webre was defamed publicly as an “idiot” and a “crackpot” by CNN’s “foppish” and “pompous” anchor Piers Stefan O’Meara (whose stage name is “Piers Morgan”) on Piers Morgan Tonight during Mr. Morgan’s interview of the former Minnesota Governor and professional wrestler James George Janos (whose stage name is “Jesse Ventura.”)  

At issue was the fact that I had called U.S. President Barack H. Obama a lifelong CIA “asset” during my interview with “Jesse Ventura” on a segment about the Gulf oil spill on his TruTV show Conspiracy Theory.  In the CNN interview, “Piers Morgan” first cuts to a scene on the Ninth Ward levee in New Orleans, where I am seen calling Mr. Obama a CIA asset as I stand with “Jesse Ventura” starting at about 30 minutes into this segment of this episode of Gov. Ventura’s Conspiracy Theory:


My statements about Mr. Obama’s background as an asset of the CIA, appearing at approximately 32 minutes into Piers Morgan’s interview with “Jesse Ventura,” were played numerous times over the air by CNN and can be viewed here:


In the remainder of the CNN segment, “Piers Morgan” then states the epithets of “idiot” and “crackpot” at me for having stated that Mr. Obama is a lifelong CIA “asset.”

In the CNN interview, Gov. Ventura gracelessly distances himself from my remarks about Obama.  However, after filming the Conspiracy Theory segment in New Orleans, Michael Braverman, Gov. Ventura’s producer, told an associate of mine “the Governor is very pleased with Alfred Webre’s interview.  We hardly had to edit Alfred at all.”

From the moment I heard about them, Piers Morgan’s ad hominem attacks on me as an “idiot” and a “crackpot” seemed out of proportion to what I had actually stated.  I was aware of Morgan’s background with the tabloids News of the World (1994–1995) and Daily Mirror (1995–2004), but still his broadsides against my reputation startled me.  

At the time that this attack was launched against me by “Piers Morgan” on CNN, I had a contractual relationship with the network.  One of CNN’s senior producers had called me “an ideal candidate” to be a guest on the pilot CNN program.  On January 31, 2011, I had signed a Non-Disclosure Agreement with CNN sent to me by its producer Eric Leffler as part of my appearance on a pilot for a new CNN public affairs program featuring my field of expertise, which is exopolitics.  I had been recommended for the program by the publisher of UFO Digest and vetted by a senior CNN producer.  A satellite uplink was set up with C-TVin Vancouver, BC and I taped a successful pilot with CNN.

As a journalist, I was surprised when friends of mine on Facebook first alerted me to the fact that CNN’s “Piers Morgan” had called me an “idiot” and a “crackpot” for discussing Barack H. Obama’s well known, lifelong connections to the CIA. Piers Morgan’s predecessor, Lawrence Harvey Zeiger (whose stage name is “Larry King”), allowed statements of this nature to be made in situations analogous to reporting about a U.S. president from a third generation CIA family.

My words about Mr. Obama rebroadcast on CNN were chosen carefully.  I had corrected Gov. Ventura when he had said “Is Obama a CIA agent?” and I stated clearly “No, President Obama is a CIA asset.”

I based my conclusions and statements on carefully documented research, including a 30-page research document by independent researcher Wayne Madsen that is available to all readers here in PDF format:


My operating journalistic hypothesis from my first hearing about Piers Morgan’s verbal fusillade was that I had found myself in the middle of a high stakes and sophisticated “set-up” designed to denigrate my integrity and public image as a leader in multidimensional journalism.

So, I resolved, as a journalist, to get to the bottom of this “setup” and identify as best I could: 

• Who exactly is Barack Obama?
