092: Osama Bin Laden – Any Questions?


"Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom." -Viktor E. Frankl

This is not an investigation into the veracity of the claims that the US military killed Bin Laden. It is an examination of why - once again - there is so little curiosity or doubt from the public and the media.

-What 9/12/01 looked and felt like
-"Choices" for travel, TSA
-The argument from authority easily prevails in the absence of critical thinking
-Lessons in authority worship from school
-Obama speech mock press conference
-My reaction to the public reaction
-A closer look at al Qaeda, Bin Laden and intelligence relationships
-Confirmation Bias
-Logical fallacies

  1. Brett, Just wanted you to know I referenced this podcast in my blog yesterday.
    Osama Bin Laden Any Questions is one of the most powerful and well stated essays I have ever heard or read on the way our rights and liberties have been eroded since 9/11 and why. My blog post is on that very subject, and your podcast came immediately to mind. I hope a few more people will take the time to hear it. Thanks so much.
