Paul Jay was a guest on Law and Disorder hosted by Michael Smith, where he was asked about his research into the events of 9/11.
The events of 9/11 were a crushing blow to democracy and the rule of law in our country. The attacks paved the way for two illegal wars. First, the American war against Afghanistan and then Iraq. It opened the way for the national security states to develop expansively and implement a vast surveillance program on American citizens. The attack on the World Trade Center and then on the Pentagon happened 20 years ago, and in retrospect, was a turning point in American and world history.
