The War On Terrorism: An Alternative View
What really happened on September 11? Why didn’t the White House, the Pentagon, and the CIA succeed in stopping the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington? Have the mainstream media failed in their responsibility to ask searching questions about the events of that day?
Media critic Barrie Zwicker, the host of the Canadian TV show, “VisionTV Insight: Mediafile,” presents this provocative six-part series of Mediafile commentaries, as he challenges the official explanation for the attacks and considers the troubling implications of America’s new war.
Poring over a wealth of published material, Zwicker finds much that has gone unexamined – from the apparent breakdown of American air defenses on Sept. 11, to the longstanding ties between U.S. intelligence and Osama bin Laden. He also takes a hard look at the actions of President George W. Bush in the midst of the crisis. And he ventures to ask what role U.S. oil interests may have played in these events.
Zwicker’s carefully researched analysis has prompted more e-mails, letters and phone calls than any single program in VisionTV’s history. Ultimately, it compels the viewer to ponder the unanswered question: Whose interests are really served by the war on terrorism?
