Download Hour1 Download Hour2The show this week features the second non-Arab American to be indicted under the Patriot Act, CIA insider Susan Lindauer. Is she really, as two US judges decided, mentally unfit to stand trial? Is this related to her being locked up and threatened with indefinite detention without trial? Her perspective in the run up to Sep 11th is a new one to this show, though in implicating the Cheney/Rumsfeld clique, is fairly compatible with other voices that we have heard on the show, and with our second guest, journalist and author, Ian Henshall.
Our second guest this week is Ian Henshall, who spoke at the 2011 recording of Reinvetigate911's UK conference on SCADs (State Crimes Against Democracy). He tells of the increasing tensions between the FBI and CIA in the run up to 9/11, and how the CIA were 'entirely sussed' on Osama Bin Laden, including bugging the 9/11 planning meeting in Malaysia. He paints a picture of a CIA who were working hard to obstruct the FBI's pursuit of the conspirators, but who after the event spent 5 years pinning the blame on FBI incompetence before promulgating the 'Israel did it' verdict using websites to throw conspiracy theorists off the scent.We conclude the show with another short installment of Chapter 7 of David Graeber's Debt, The First 5000 Years.
