The more things change... The latest WikiLeaks dump exposes the gulag at Guantanamo Bay.

The prison at Guantanamo Bay is a lingering blight of Bush's -- and now Obama's -- War on Terror. The latest WikiLeaks dump exposes the flimsy evidence on which some people are still being held, and the apparent indifference with which others were released. And once again, the documents confirm that torture is an accepted instrument of U.S. foreign policy. Abe and Joe sift through the leaks and ponder whether the Bill of Rights will ever again be in vogue.

Physicist and activist Vandana Shiva discusses "War on Earth"

Vandana Shiva  - War on the Earth  (interview)

The predatory practices of corporations are increasingly turning our fragile garden into a junkyard. Citizens are told by their political masters and the corporados who pay them that there is no alternative. That’s true if one’s only concern is profits. That approach is fast turning our planet into a toxic waste dump. The landscape of environmental devastation extends from radiation leaks in Japan to drilling in the Alberta tar sands to hydofracking in Pennsylvania and New York to leveling mountains in West Virginia to more drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. However in India, the site of some of the worst corporate abuses, there is tremendous popular resistance.

Guess Who's Winning the Class War?

program date: 
Mon, 04/18/2011

 Tom Becker reads "Class-Warfare Scorecard: guess who's winning?" Mike Whitney deflects the myth that our economic woes are due (primarily) to "credit addled shoppers going crazy at Macy's." Instead, wages have stagnated since the 1970s, money has accumulated among those who already have more than they know what to do with (literally), and profits soar while employment plummets.

Robert Fisk/Araxie Barsamian - The Armenian Holocaust (lecture)

Robert Fisk/Araxie Barsamian - The Armenian Holocaust (lecture)

In 1915, the Turkish government launched a premeditated organized campaign to eliminate the millennia-old Armenian people from their traditional homeland in what is now southeastern Turkey. The Turkish officials responsible for the genocide were never brought to account. This was not lost on Adolf Hitler. Just days before launching World War Two he told his generals, "Who today, after all, speaks of the annihilation of the Armenians?" What makes the 20th century's first holocaust unique is that Turkey refuses to acknowledge it ever happen. And that denial is the final stage of genocide: closure and justice is denied to the victims and their descendents.
