Exclusive interview with lawyer Stanley Cohen on effort to release ISIS hostage
Download:
On this KBOO exclusive, we speak with Stanley Cohen, the lifelong activist lawyer whose commitment to justice has brought him to odds with the US government on more than one occasion.

This time, however, Stanley found himself in the position of having to coordinate with State Department officials when he traveled to Jordan in October as a private individual to try to secure the release of Peter Abdul-Rahman Kassig, who had been taken hostage by ISIS.

Whether the Jordanian government intentionally mis-led their powerful U.S. ally, or the U.S. had no intention of allowing it, the release effort was sabotaged when Jordan arrested one of those involved.  Soon after that sabotage, Kassig was killed by his captors.

A conversation with Diana Rohlman concerning the Superfund site, Black Butte Mine, near Cottage Grove, Oregon. We talk about this now-abandoned mercury (cinnabar) mine and some of the toxic remnants left behind, together with the health risks the mine poses. The history of the mine, typical of many other from the 19th and 29th centuries, goes from full-steam ahead, to abandonment, and back again several times. The community wanted this project and many have worked there or have family members who did. Diana Rohlman is the Outreach Coordinator at the OSU Environmental Science Health Center and works with other scientists, with a local school and its principal, and with the community in Cottage Grove.

Per Fagereng interviews Gareth Porter,
historian, investigative journalist and policy analyst.  His latest book
is "Perils of Dominance: Imbalance of Power and the Road to War
in Vietnam."

He wrote the recent piece "Bush Pledges on Iraq Bases Pact
Were a Ruse,"
which states: "When Democratic Sen. James
Webb asked the State Department's David Satterfield, 'What is a permanent
base?' Satterfield tried to avoid answering the question. But Assistant Defense
Secretary Mary Beth Long was more responsive. She said, 'I have looked into
this. As far as the department is concerned, we don't have a worldwide or even
a department-wide definition of permanent bases.'    "Webb
then observed, 'It doesn't really mean anything,' to which Long replied, 'Yes,
senator, you're right. It doesn't.' She added that 'most lawyers... would say
that the word "permanent" probably refers more to the state of mind
contemplated by the use of the term.'"
