Guest: Senator Mike Gravel
Senator Mike Gravel served as the democratic US Senator for Alaska between 1969 to 1981, having served on committees of Finance, Interior, Environment, chairing the energy committee and participating in the subcommittees addressing environmental pollution. In the early 1950s he was a special agent in the Army’s Counter Intelligence Corps. Sen. Gravel is perhaps best known for publishing the Pentagon Papers which led to the litigation of Gravel versus the US resulting in a landmark Supreme Court decision.
He is now spearheading a new organizational campaign -- the Citizens 911 Commission Campaign – that would put on state ballots an initiative that would authorize a new investigation into the 911 events and that would be vested with grand jury powers.
