Mark Tillman: Piloting Air Force One on 9/11

Most of us remember where we were on September 11, 2001. For Col. Mark Tillman, USAF-Ret., it was commanding Air Force One – which happened to be in Sarasota, Florida, on the day of the attack. One of only 14 Americans to have served as a presidential pilot, Tillman discusses the choices made in securing President Bush, the new-generation of Boeing 747s that are scheduled to enter service in 2024, plus where fact and fiction meet in Harrison Ford’s Air Force One action film.

Shelby Steele On Race And Victimization In America

He’s the son of a biracial couple who worked for equality well before “mixed” marriages were publicly accepted, protested in the 1960s and considered himself a “radical” before reconsidering race relations in America. On the 400th anniversary of African slaves introduced to the Virginia colony, Shelby Steele, the Hoover Institution’s Robert J. and Marion E. Oster Senior Fellow and an award-winning authority on multiculturalism, addresses a Hoover Summer Policy Boot Camp audience on 21st Century America’s struggles with white guilt and black self-victimization.
