Prominent 9/11 survivor Willie Rodriguez went on Sky News in the UK on Oct. 21 to call attention to the fact that Americans have been faced with ‘seven years of fear’ since 9/11, and only the economic crisis has forced politicians to switch gears from fear mongering for the ‘War on Terror’ to other matters.
Rodriguez criticized the 9/11 grandstanding that convinced the public to initially support the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. He also relayed his experiences on the day of the attacks, pointing out that he witnessed multiple explosions in the basement.
The anchor seems rather unfazed by news of explosions in the basement; perhaps she thought he was referring to the plane hitting the top of the towers.
