9/11 activists Jenna Orkin and Jon Gold are Mickey's guests for the hour. Rather than considering who the perpetrators might've been, these guests discuss the public health disaster that followed the attacks, when thousands of emergency workers and area residents became ill from the toxins spread by the fires and collapse of the World Trade Center. Jon Gold also calls out some of the lies told by politicians (both federal and local) about 9/11, as well as the failures of the 9/11 Commission.
 
 
Notes:
 
This is a rebroadcast of the Project Censored Show of July 16, 2018
 
Jenna Orkin has written four books, the most recent being "Ground Zero Wars." She focuses on the public health impacts of the 9/11 disaster. At the time of the attacks, her son attended high school four blocks from the WTC.
 
Jon Gold has been investigating 9/11 for over ten years. His latest work is "We Were Lied To About 9/11," a digital collection of transcripts from interviews with journalists, whistleblowers, peace activists, relatives of victims, and others who've worked to uncover the story.

But then he names some individuals who've made a difference in recent U.S. history, explains what students
