More on Howard Zinn and 9/11

Some guy in Colorado running for political office asks historian and political activist Howard Zinn whether he thinks 9/11 was an inside job and whether he will support efforts for a new investigation.  Zinn says he doesn't know if 9/11 was an inside job, but that he doesn't trust the government, but that the past is the past and we shouldn't try to get a new investigation, and just worry about changing present U.S. foreign policy. .  The questioner wanted to ask a follow-up question about whether, in that case, we should continue to hunt Nazi war criminals, but wasn't allowed.   Too bad.  This was in 2008.  It's clear that even with a Democratic president U.S. foreign policy isn't going to change.  So would Zinn have been more willing to support a new investigation into 9/11?  As far as I can tell, that is probably the only way to change our foreign policy. I can't get the video to show up, so you'll have to go here to see it.
