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.

Since becoming a rare eyewitness to a false flag attack in 2009, Kurt has dedicating many thousands of hours to researching each subsequent false flag attack. In 2012, hoping to change the US for the better, Kurt unsuccessfully ran for US Congress in Michigan's 7th District.
