First hour: Paul Craig Roberts — the greatest op-ed writer of the post-9/11 era, banned from the Wall Street Journal for telling the truth. His latest article “Our Time of Universal Deceit Needs an Orwell” is one of his best.
Dr. Roberts was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury during President Reagan’s first term. He was Associate Editor of the Wall Street Journal. He has held numerous academic appointments, including the William E. Simon Chair, Center for Strategic and International Studies, Georgetown University, and Senior Research Fellow, Hoover Institution, Stanford University. He was awarded the Legion of Honor by French President Francois Mitterrand. He is the author of many books. (Full bio and column collection here.)
Second hour: Muad’Dib, director of 7/7 Ripple Effect. Good news: On March 8th, Muad’Dib was released from jail, where he was awaiting trial on charges of “attempting to corrupt the judicial system.” In fact, Muad’Dib’s alleged “crime” — sending his 7/7 truth DVD to judge and jurors — was clearly an attempt to prevent the corruption of the judicial system. Muad’Dib’s Alice-in-Wonderland experience with British “justice” has included repeated denials of his requests for bail on the grounds that he failed to attend the bail hearings. Yet the very government that demanded his presence at the bail hearings refused to allow him to attend them by keeping him locked in his cell! Are we watching a re-make of Catch-22 or is this Monty Python meets Franz Kafka? Tune in and meet one of the bravest political prisoners of our time, 7/7 truth-teller Muad’Dib.
