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.

Short Description: 
Obama's grade thus far? A mixed bag.

Nearly a year after his election (but, in fairness, not yet a year into his first term), Barack Obama is an enigma. Thankfully, he has abandoned the rapacious aggression and naked nationalism of the Bush years, but on critical issues like warrantless surveillance and detention of combatants he is barely distinguishable from his criminal predecessors. His clear-eyed acceptance of global warming is refreshing -- not to mention timely -- but he appears on the verge of capitulating to the profiteers who run the American health care system.

Barack Obama remains a study in contradictions. Abe and Joe examine his record thus far, and speculate on what's to come.
