Speaker 1/ Rob Kall, Interviewer

Speaker 2/ Paul Craig Roberts,Interviewee

 

Rob Kall:  My guest tonight is Paul Craig Roberts.

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 major financial firms. He's the author of eleven books.

Welcome to the show! Again!

Paul Craig Roberts:   Thanks

Rob Kall:  Good to have you back!

Paul 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 wind!

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!
