‘The Great Train Robbery’

Introduction

By the time I started this column, I’d written for The Atlantic, The Washington Post, The Nation, Salon, The Intercept, Salon.com, and several other outlets.

I’ve written for newspapers, magazines, websites, and other publications in the United States and around the world.

This column, which I started in 2014, is my way of bringing attention to a series of articles I wrote about the history of the train robbery that took place on September 11, 2001, and how the media ignored it.

It’s also my way to acknowledge the fact that I’ve had an incredibly hard time finding a place to post this piece because I’ve been on the run since the fall of 2016, and my internet connection has been in disarray since January 2017.

That was a lot of time and effort for a journalist.

But, as a matter of fact, it’s been a lot more time and energy than I expected.

So, here it is: a piece I wrote in December 2016 for a popular newspaper in Kenya, which has now been turned into a podcast by a group of former journalists called “The Great Railway Robbery,” and which is now being recorded and published by an organization called “Kelowna Radio.”

The podcast is available for free download on iTunes and Stitcher.

In the podcast, the journalists talk about how the train robberies took place in Kenya in the years leading up to the attack, and what it’s like to talk to the victims, to tell their stories, and to listen to the tapes of the interviews they did.

It is also an interesting insight into the motivations and tactics of the perpetrators, as well as the victims.

One of the journalists interviewed in the podcast talks about how he and his colleagues tried to contact the perpetrators but were told by them that they couldn’t, that the police had no jurisdiction over the crime scene, that they were a bunch of nutcases, that it was all a conspiracy by the government to cover up the train thefts.

In short, the interviewers say, “They’re the bad guys.”

So, this is not an exhaustive account of what took place at the station on that day.

But I do think it provides a fascinating look at the perpetrators’ mindset at the time, and the methods by which they went about doing their crime.

And this is part of the reason why, despite all the attention the attack has received, so many people don’t know about it, even though it happened on a train.

It took me a while to realize how much of the media’s coverage is due to the media bias against Kenya and its people.

And, when you look at what happened that day, you can see how important it was for the media to keep a low profile.

The entire day was a crime scene investigation.

We had a very limited amount of information.

We didn’t have enough police officers to investigate it.

There was no crime scene tape.

The police weren’t ready to enter into an official investigation.

The only police officers who were allowed to enter were from a nearby district.

We knew nothing about the whereabouts of the suspects.

I had never seen a train this old.

It was an older train that had been sitting there for many years.

I went to the station that day to interview some of the people who worked there, and they all said that no one knew anything about the train at all, that we didn’t even know that the station had a train station.

But then I learned that the train had a number of cars and that the whole place was in lockdown, that a lot was missing, and that police were trying to do a cursory investigation.

So when I started looking at the CCTV footage, I realized that, as much as we were told, the whole thing was a conspiracy, that nobody was really sure what had happened, and no one was even allowed to look into the whole situation.

It turns out that, when I went there, it was the only time in the entire investigation that I actually had any direct contact with the perpetrators.

And I didn’t see them at all until a couple of days later, and when I finally met them in person, they were all just completely surprised that I’d ever bothered to go there.

When I met the people working there, they told me that they thought I was just trying to get them fired.

The train was a very old, worn out, decrepit, and old-fashioned locomotive.

It had been abandoned for decades.

And it was a train that they had spent years repairing, and had been refurbished in the 1990s, so it was not like it was new and shiny.

The owners of the company that owned the train told me the locomotive was not used much, but they did not want to see any of the cars and other equipment that were
