Porkins Policy Radio episode 163 The Watchdogs Didn’t Bark with Ray Nowosielski and John Duffy

Documentarians Ray Nowosielski and John Duffy joined me this week to discuss their new book, The Watchdogs Didn’t Bark: The CIA, NSA, and the Crimes of the War on Terror. Ray and John talked about their earlier work covering 9/11. They discussed how they first got involved, and the subsequent hurdles that this sort of journalism presented. They spoke about the CIA’s threats against them after completing their second documentary Who is Rich Blee? John and Ray talked about why they decided to write The Watchdogs Didn’t Bark and what separates this from the numerous books on 9/11 already out there. They spoke about about the legacy of the 9/11 and some of the major figures involved in the cover up who went on to more prominent positions within the government. We touched on CIA director Gina Haspels career which took off when she oversaw the infamous black site known as Cat’s Eye. We also spoke at length about the impact that Michael Scheuer has had on the war on terror. We talked about his role setting up Alec Station and the cult like devotion that his staff had for him.

In the second hour we dive into some of the minutia of the 9/11 attacks. We looked at the strange case of Abu Zubaydah and his interrogation. John and Ray discussed the information that Zubaydah allegedly gave up which linked him to several members of the Saudi Royal family. John and Ray also spoke about the odd deaths of Saudi Prince’s Ahmed, Sultan, and Fahd all within days of one another. We also touched on the role that the NSA played in in covering up key information related to the 9/11 hijackers. We finish off the episode by looking at the current state of the 9/11 research movement.

Filmmaker and author John Duffy joined me this month to discuss his new book, the current state of American politics, and much more. We started out by talking about his two documentaries with Ray Nowosielski, 9/11: Press for Truth and Who is Rich Blee? John spoke about his experiences with former counter terrorism czar Richard Clarke as well as the CIA’s attempts to censor his work. We also talked about his new book co-authored with Ray Nowosielski, The Watchdogs Didn’t Bark: The CIA, NSA, and the Crimes of the War on Terror. John talked about the question of government accountability in a historical context, focusing on both pre and post 9/11 America. John also talks about what the NSA knew in regards to 9/11 hijackers Khalid al-Mihdhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi. He also touches on the infamous Yemen hub. Later we talked about the hyper partisan political environment that we all live in. John talked about how this politicized world has led many key figures in the 9/11 coverup to undergo a strange rehabilitation.
