Academic Life in the Post 9/11 Era >>

EPISODE #58

AIRED: 09-21-2015

This week a pre-recorded interview is featured between James Tracy and Kevin Barrett that originally aired on Barrett’s Truth Jihad Radio on September 15. They discuss recent threats to academic freedom and tenure protections, modern academe’s indifference toward critical analysis of 9/11 and the war on terror, and unusual features of recent “mass shooting” mediated events.

Adding to the intrigue of this specific session are the odd audio difficulties that seemed to intensify as Tracy and Barrett began to address certain subject matter. The technical problems eventually hindered the interview to such a degree that the Skype connection was abandoned in lieu of telephone.

Dr. Barrett’s most recent book, We Are Not Charlie Hebdo: Free Thinkers Question the French 9/11 (2015) is an important new volume featuring contributions from Paul Craig Roberts, Webster Tarpley, Barbara Honegger, Alain Soral, Rabbi Michael Lerner, Cynthia McKinney, and many more.

Barrett holds a doctorate in Arabic Studies from The University of Wisconsin. He is a regular columnist at Iran’s PressTV and an editor at Veterans Today. Barrett is also the author of Truth Jihad: My Epic Struggle Against the 9/11 Big Lie (Progressive 2006) and Questioning the War on Terror: A Primer for Obama Voters (Khadir, 2009).
