Today’s show features interviews with the Daily Mail’s Melanie Philips, author of Londonistan and the Times of London’s U.S. editor Gerard Baker on the story in yesterday’s Sunday Times concerning al Qaeda’s ambitions for a large attack on Britain or another western country..
Tomorrow’s program will feature Lawrence Wright, author of The Looming Tower, which won the Pulitzer for general non-fiction last week.
The transcript of the Philips and Baker interviews will be up later here, and the audio here.
Frank Gaffney will also join me for an update on the PBS suppression of the film he co-produced, Islam vs. Islamists, which could not be more timely and urgently necessary for the public to see.
These are extremely odd times: NBC airs a video that will inspire future psychotics to film their manifestos and possibly their mayhem and send them off to be broadcast with hardly a half dozen hours delay between receipt and broadcast, but the public is not allowed to see a film about a growing threat to not only Great Britain but also to the United States and all of moderate Islam as well.
UPDATE: Gaffney is asking the public to continue to call Patricia Harrison, president of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting to demand the film be aired uncensored or released for airing elsewhere. Her number is 202-879-9600.
The film will also be screened for congressmen and senators tomorrow night, and Senators Lieberman and Inhofe and Congressman Walsh have signed a “dear colleague” invitation to every legislator that asks them to attend. Please call you representatives in both chambers and urge them to attend. The Hill switchboard is 202-225-3121.
