September 11 - A Whistleblower Who Tried to Prevent 9/11; An Editor Fired for Not Covering Putin's Latest Stunt; The Senate's Mendacious Attempt to Kill Dodd-Frank
|LISTEN TO FULL PROGRAM|
|On this 11th anniversary of 9/11 we begin with Coleen Rowley, a former FBI special agent who pushed to investigate the so-call thirteenth 9/11 hijacker Zacarias Moussoui before the 9/11 attack. We discuss the latest revelations of a hidden body of memos and intelligence briefs that preceded the infamous August 9 CIA daily brief “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in US” that make it clear how culpable the Bush White House are for not preventing 9/11 and how negligent they were in ignoring repeated, specific warnings.|
Then we go to Moscow to speak with the editor of a popular science magazine who was fired for not covering Putin’s stunt flying with the cranes. Masha Gessen, the author of “The Man Without a Face: The Unlikely Rise of Vladimir Putin” joins us to discuss the on-going struggle of brave Russians standing up to an increasingly repressive leader who continues to dramatically reverse freedom of expression and the legal, civil and human rights of Russians.
Then finally we examine the latest attempt by the Wall Street banking lobby to undo the Dodd-Frank post 2008 reforms. Amit Narang, Public Citizen’s regulatory policy advocate and Editor of The Administrative Law Review joins us to discuss how a bi-partisan group of Senators are pushing a poison pill bill posing as financial reform that will enable Wall Street to smother attempts at oversight with endless delays through litigation.
