Osama bin Laden Is Dead, But Officials Say The War On Terror Is Not Over

Osama bin Laden Is Dead, But Officials Say The War On Terror Is Not Over
Osama Bin LadenOfficials say DNA evidence proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that the FBI’s most sought after fugitive is indeed dead. Osama bin Laden, face of global terrorism and architect of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, was killed yesterday in a raid in Pakistan. While the official word from homeland security is that there is no plan to raise the terror alert many are concerned about the possibility of retaliation. We’re joined by Dr. Jim Walsh, an expert in international security and a research associate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Security Studies Program. We’ll also check in with Massachusetts Congressman Michael CapuanoRichard Shultz, director of the International Security Studies Program at The Fletcher School, Tufts University; and Jessica Stern, an expert on terrorism, author of Denial: A Memoir of Terror. We’ll also hear from Carie Lemack – whose mother was on one of the planes that crashed into World Trade Center nearly ten years ago.

The Great Back Bay Blackout
After a smoky electrical transformer fire knocked out power to about 21,000 homes and businesses, sections of the neighborhood are getting back online. But problems are expected to persist into tonight. We’ll have the latest.

  Garrett Quinn, WGBH contributor and author of the Less is More blog on Boston.com
  Meg Mainzer-Cohen, president of the Back Bay Association
  Marcia Gregg, a Back Bay resident who (along with her family) lost power (and still doesn’t have it)
  David Jacobs, publisher and editor The Boston Courant, covers Back Bay, South End Beacon Hill and Fenway

The Baffler Is Back
The self-described “journal that blunts the cutting edge” is back in print after a two-year hiatus. The Baffler’s latest issue of scathing media, political and cultural criticism hits newsstands tomorrow. And no cow is sacred. (Not even the one that pays its bills).

Guests:
  John Summers, editor of The Baffler
