"Obama and Civil Liberties" with Webster Griffin Tarpley. We discuss the possible civil liberties implications of Obama's West Point speech, and an historical parallel between Woodrow Wilson and Barack Obama. Most of the program focuses on the arrests and detention of so-called "homegrown terrorists" including Najibullah Zazi, the Bronx Bombers, the Fort Dix Six, the Liberty City 7 (aka the Miami Haitians), the Toronto 18, etc.; extensive discussion of the Ft. Hood shooter case and Tarpley's essay, "Nidal Malik Hasan of Virginia Tech, Bethesda and Fort Hood: A Major Patsy in a Drill Gone Live?".
