The US Empire and 9/11 in Historical Context
For the twentieth anniversary and commemoration of the September 11th attacks, Mickey and his expert guests examine some still-unanswered questions about the attacks and the events that preceded them, notably why several already-identified terror suspects were not taken into custody by US authorities and why some countries with obvious connections to them were not held to account. They also address the many consequences of the 9/11 attacks both domestically and in terms of foreign policy and international law as well as the significance of a declared state of emergency and continuity of government operations.
