Comments

I tried to find out who the

I tried to find out who the speaker was also and searched the internet, looking for it. It was a well done presentation indeed.

Inquiry as to the author of a broadcast

I heard a broadcast on Kboo Portland radio at 10:30 pst on Friday July 24th, 2009. There was an editoral about the denial of American Imperialism and the falsehood of government policies versus the way they are represented to the public. The information was very well presented and resignated strongly.

I did not hear the author's name. I would like to find out who that is so that I may continue to read any publications of his that I can find.

--Thank You,
