S E13: FBI Counter-Terrorism Specialist Addresses Conspiracy Theories and ISIS Connection
May 14, 2018•56 min
We speak to Kenneth Williams, a 30-year veteran of the FBI who was a central figure in the 9/11 investigation. He wrote the “Phoenix Memo” which warned FBI headquarters a full two months prior to the 9/11 attacks that Muslim extremists tied to Osama Bin Laden had enrolled in flight schools in Arizona. No action was taken as a result of the memo, which is cited as one of the key intelligence failures leading up to the 9/11 attack. Williams provides a fascinating analysis of the Las Vegas Shooting. He goes out of his way in an attempt to discredit conspiracy theories, and gives very little credence to ISIS’s claim of responsibility despite the terror group’s track record.
