“Incontrovertible” also is unique among 9/11 documentaries in that most of the individuals in the film
are emergency responders – firefighters or police.

Peter and Mickey spend the hour in conversation with author/educator Henry Giroux. Giroux explains the concept of ‘critical pedagogy,’

he cites the formation of a broad-based third political party, and more academics taking on the duties of public intellectuals, rather than
