The 9/11 decade. Click here to listen or download, beginning at 2:00 PM San Francisco time. It’s been 10 years since the fall of the towers, and America has been “shifted right” – far to the right; into the realms of Eternal War. To my mind, the formerly generous and caring American spirit has been transformed into distrustful and suspicious fear of anything that’s “alien” and “different”, coupled with a lust to punish all “miscreants”. And that’s not to even mention the growth of the national Security State and our decling / decaying civil rights! (See this on civil rights.) Cindy’s first guest is “Paul Thompson”, pseudonymous author of the respected history The Terror Timeline: Year by Year, Day by Day, Minute by Minute: A Comprehensive Chronicle of the Road to 9/11 — and America’s Response. You can read more about him and his work here. He carefully outlines the American perspective. Cindy’s second guest is Iraqi-American peace activist Dr. Dahlia Wasfi, (who is reputed to “absolutely kick ass” in presenting another perspective, from a country destroyed because of the 9/11 attacks).
Can we talk about what actually happened on 9/11? On the next Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the questions that remain seven years after the 9/11 Commission delivered its report. What were their conclusions? And what is still missing? Join us at 10 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. A wide range of people are calling for an independent investigation.
