"As It Happens" and the 9/11 hijackers myth.
Did anyone else catch the CBC's "As It Happens" last night? Driving home, I just caught the last snippet of an interview in which the guest was talking about border security and claimed that some 11 of the 9/11 hijackers entered the U.S. through Canada, a myth that has been thoroughly debunked by now.
To her credit, the host was moderately aggressive in disagreeing with that claim, saying something like "I'm pretty sure that's not true." Personally, I would have preferred a response something like, "You are an ignorant dick and total wanker, and I'm going to cut you off before you say something even stupider." But I'll take what I can get.
Are show transcripts available online somewhere? From the brief clip I heard, it sounded like the guest might have been one of these volunteer, border patrol Minutemen assholes,
