The Deep Politics of the Boston Marathon Bombing

Russ Baker, author of Family of Secrets: The Bush Dynasty, America’s Invisible Government, and the Hidden History of the Last Fifty Years (Bloomsbury Press 2009), talks about the myriad of contradictions and unanswered questions in the Boston Marathon Bombing.

Baker is highly critical of the conspiracy of silence by the corporate and alternative media regarding the obvious discrepancies in this case. The “official” version of the bombing and FBI investigation makes even less sense than the official narrative concerning 9-11 or the JFK assassination.

Baker and investigative staff lay out the results of their year-long investigation at his on-line non-profit news site: http://whowhatwhy.com/

In the video below, he also discusses the role of the media in perpetuating a sense of helplessness and apathy in the American people and what we can do about it.
