He's a former Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury. He's a former Associate
Editor of the Wall Street Journal, columnist at Business Week and Scripps
Howard, he's been a Professor at Stanford and Georgetown, & advisor to

to the show! Again!
Craig Roberts: Thanks
Rob Kall: Good to have you
Craig Roberts: Thanks Rob. Glad to be with you, Rob.
Rob Kall: Yeah. So a lot of
stuff going on, a lot of things to talk about. We're doing this interview on
9/11, and I think you and I are in considerable agreement about the impact of
9/11 on the US and the world.
What's your take on, eleven years later, how 9/11 has affected us?
Paul Craig Roberts: Well it's given us a "Police State'. It's destroyed the the civil liberties
that are guaranteed by the Constitution. You know things that the British
fought for, for eight, nine hundred years like "Habeas corpus', due process. All of these things are" are gone with the
And abroad, it's resulted in United States military attacks on seven
countries. I think it's murder" the
murder, probably, of hundreds of thousands of Muslims in seven countries. And
it has destroyed America's moral stature-- its moral reputation that was built
up during the Cold War, and in the aftermath of World War II.
It's produced what Gerald Celente calls
a "presstitute media' that simply lies for the Government. It no longer holds the government accountable
or investigates anything, just repeats whatever the Government says.
And it's leading us, in my opinion, into direct" military confrontation
with Russia and China which probably means the end of the world!
