Dhoruba bin Wahad and Naji Mujahid: Denied entry into Palestine

program date: 
Thu, 11/26/2009

5:00 - 6:00 pm Thurs. Nov. 26th

KBOO interviews Dhoruba bin Wahad, who is speaking from a hotel in Jordan after being detained and then denied entry into Palestine by Israeli authorities.  bin Wahad is a former political prisoner in the US who was charged in 1971 with the murder of two police officers, but was vindicated nineteen years later when a judge ruled that the FBI had fabricated evidence in order to frame bin Wahad of a crime he didn't commit.

As an African-American, on his way to a conference on political prisoners convened by the Palestinian Authority in the city of Jericho, bin Wahad feels that he was racially profiled, along with his travelling companion Naji Mujahid - the only two African Americans on a busload of white tourists.

Air date: 
Tue, 11/24/2009 - 8:00am - 9:00am

Jerry Flanagan of Consumer Watchdog joins Abe and Joe for a perusal of the health care legislation that has emerged from the House and that which should shortly be produced by the Senate. Surprise -- the insurance industry is going to get everything it wants, and the American people will get only a fraction of what they need.

With President Obama and the Congressional Democrats committed to passing some sort of health care bill -- regardless of whether it's worth a damn -- this is shaping up to be another in a long line of wasted opportunities. Once again, the guys with the gold are making the rules.

Building new community journalism

Like their national counterparts, our local media is in a tailspin. The Oregonian is cutting more than 60 reporters from its newsroom. Television and radio news has been reduced to weather reports and traffic accidents. Developments on the internet hold promise, but right now is more opinion and little solid local reporting. How can our democratic institutions thrive if our citizens can't found out what is happening in their community.
