Naomi Klein on Post-9/11 Panic: "People So Scared...They Thought Giuliani Was Their Long Lost Daddy" [VIDEO]

Klein, author of "The Shock Doctrine", talks with Bill Maher about her belief that corporations and politicians who seek a horrific national disaster to advance their idealogical, privatization agenda.
In this clip, Naomi Klein, who we featured previously in an interview conducted by actor John Cusack, is interviewed by Bill Maher on the most recent episode of his HBO series Real Time with Bill Maher. She talks about how crony capitalism and various other nefarious elements have taken advantage of post-9/11 panic in the American people and wrecked havoc. Maher has a great line about 9/11. He says, "Remember, how after 9/11 for like three months, we all had to pretend Bush was smart. If that's not panic I don't know what is." Check out the video to your right for more.
