Download Hour1 Download Hour2This week we look behind some American illusions. The Sep 11th attacks have been compared with Pearl Harbor and that comparison may be more apt than many realise.
In the first hour, an interview with Robert Stinnett, author of a book that documents that the so-called surprise attack was anything but; it was deliberately provoked in order to gain public support for war, that top US leaders deliberately sacrificed the lives of several thousand in order to fuel public outrage. In the second hour of the program, we'll take a look at the mechanics of elections, and the means whereby those in power rig the outcome through perfectly legal methods, and then we'll take a look at the national labor relations act of 1935 - which purports to help workers, but many say, actually serves to limit the ability of workers to organize and challenge the wage system.
Thanks to Mike McCormick for the Robert Stinnett interview
