Abu Zybaydah, 9/11 Terrorist … or Not
Join host Jim Fausone on Veterans Radio. Jim’s guests include Joseph Hickman and Frank Vera.
Joe Hickman is the co-author of The Convenient Terrorist which is the definitive inside account of the capture, torture, and detention of Abu Zubaydah, the first “high-value target” captured by the CIA after 9/11. But was Abu Zubaydah, who is still being indefinitely held by the United States under shadowy circumstances, the blue-ribbon capture that the Bush White House claimed he was? Authors John Kiriakou, who led the capture of Zubaydah, and our guest Joseph Hickman, who took custody of him at Guantanamo, draw a far more complex and intriguing portrait of the al-Qaeda “mastermind” who became a symbol of torture and the “dark side” of US security.
Superfund at George AFB in California
Jim’s second story is about George AFB CA which is a Superfund site where over 100,000 military and family members were exposed to toxic chemicals like TCE solvent, PCBs, Nuclear Radiation, Chlordane and Organochlorine pesticides. The health problems from that exposure and the delays by DOD, USAF and VA are discussed in this interview with Frank Vera, an exposed veteran advocate.
You don’t want to miss either one of these true stories. No “fake news” on Veterans Radio.
