On COI #161, Kyle Anzalone and Will Porter reflect on the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks and the innumerable ways they changed America forever. Will and Kyle also recall their own experiences growing up under the burgeoning War on Terror and how the attacks affected and influenced their lives.
The Biden administration continues to crank up its Covid regime, expanding federal vaccine mandates through indirect, piecemeal regulatory moves, as opposed to an outright executive order forcing all Americans to be vaccinated. The incremental approach is less likely to provoke opposition, and allows the government to maintain that it has not, in fact, mandated vaccinations.
The Pentagon’s narrative around a recent drone strike in Kabul continues to collapse. A New York Times investigation strongly suggests the target of the strike did not belong to ISIS, and was instead a humanitarian aid worker for an American NGO based in California. It also casts serious doubt on the military’s claim that the car hit in the drone strike may have been carrying explosives, and that such explosives caused “secondary” blasts that killed civilians. Will and Kyle had previously noted a 2017 story in which the Pentagon used the same “secondary explosion” excuse after a US strike killed scores of civilians in Iraq.
Several Palestinians have escaped from an Israeli prison, all of them originally captured for their role in the armed resistance to Israel’s occupation. The jailbreak has become big news in Israel, but provoked a jingoistic reaction from some locals, Kyle explains.
