Porkins Policy Radio episode 144 Jon Gold We Were Lied to About 911 The Interviews

9/11 activist and researcher Jon Gold joins me once again to discuss his new book We Were Lied To About 9/11: The Interviews. Jon explains what the book includes and why he decided to compile the book and make it freely available. Jon and I discuss the current state of the 9/11 truth movement and then move onto a few under-reported aspects of 9/11. We look at the strange contradictions and facts about what was happening in San Diego just before September 11th. Jon and I talk about the activities of hijackers Khalid al-Mihdhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi in San Diego. We talk about the reports that they entered the country before the FBI claimed they did, and the allegations that Prince Bandar was funneling money to them. Jon elaborates on this by describing Omar al-Bayoumi and his possible role as their Saudi intelligence handler. We also touch on their landlord and FBI informant Abdussattar Shaikh. I briefly talk about how this connects to several strange people in Denver Colorado connected to the 9/11 attacks.

Later Jon and I talk about Gina Haspel’s confirmation as CIA head and her legacy as a torturer. We talk about her role destroying CIA torture tapes and why Kahlid Sheik Mohammad wanted to offer his analysis of Haspel. We discuss the idea that this is the CIA’s way of telling the world that they will continue to torture. Jon and I also rant about Rudy Guliani and Michael Scheuer’s role in the 9/11 cover-up.

US government admits hunger strike in Guantanamo

After hemming and hawing about the hunger strike in the Guantanamo Bay prison, the US government has finally admitted that there are in fact prisoners on hunger strike.  As with all scandals involving the state the government is attempting to downplay this as much as possible.  It is only conceding that 14 inmates are on hunger strike.  This is in stark contrast with what the detainee’s lawyers are saying.  According to several lawyers representing the 166 individuals held with out trial, around 130 prisoners in Camp 6 are on hunger strike.  Lawyers have claimed that several of the individuals were coughing up blood, as well as looking emaciated.  The freedom loving US government flippantly states this is a fabrication.  Guantanamo spokesman Navy Capt. Robert Durand had this to say in regards to the hunger strike “Refusing prepared meals and choosing to subsist for a time on snack foods does not constitute a hunger strike.” 

In other words, nothing to see here people.  You can go back to worrying about Lil Wayne and stop wondering what happens in a highly secret military prison where 166 men languish in legal limbo.  There are only a few inmates refusing food and they are sneaking potato chips and cookies when no one is looking.
