Marking the 16th anniversary of the September 11th attacks, Peter and Mickey speak with two scholars who've written extensively about Sept. 11. 
The first guest is David Ray Griffin, author of nearly a dozen books about Sept. 11; he contends the Bush Administration played the central role in the attacks. 
In this appearance on the Project Censored Show, he speaks about some of the ideas in his latest book, Bush and Cheney: How They Ruined America and the World.
For the second half of the show, Tony Hall speaks about Mossad and Sept. 11, and how he was fired from a tenured professorship at a Canadian university after expressing his views.
