An Irishman Abroad

9/11 Twenty Years On (Marion Looks Back To Her Day At Ground Zero) - Irishman In America With Marion McKeone (Trailer)

September 10, 2021

Marion McKeone was right there when the World Trade Centre crumbled and the world became a different place. On the 20th anniversary of this devastating event, she looks back on what she observed on that day. Together with Jarlath she traces the events and decisions that followed. The thirst for revenge and even torture began that night. Marion recalls the Irish survivor she encountered, the case for invading Iraq and how Bin Laden evaded Bush. Later Jarlath asks Marion for an update on California’s recall, the Texas abortion law debacle and takes the click bait hook, line and sinker!
