We begin this week with an update on Sep 11th; we hear how the US government is covering up its possession of the WTC jetliners' flight recorders and how citizens file an unprecedented complaint demanding a criminal investigation by New York Attorney General into 9/11. After We Can't Make It Here Anymore, we hear our first speaker, Chris Hedges, whose 40 minutes talk, entitled "War is a force that gives us meaning", is one of the most moving exposes of war we have played on the show. Our second hour is a discussion from the Veterans For Peace convention in Boston, recorded on 2004-07-25. Vietnam veterans Dennis Stout, Jim Brown, Christopher Meyers, Steven Sherrill discuss the ugly reality of war as they experienced it. They draw the connections between their personal experience and the wider reality of USA's wars of aggression.
Music: We Can't Make It Here Anymore by James Mcmurtry
