Bill Resnick: killing terrorists vs. ending terrorism

program date: 
Mon, 05/02/2011

 Bill reminds us of the role the US government had in building Al Qaeda during the Cold War and their support of dictatorships in Muslim countries. These twin strategies gutted labor and otherwise left movements in these countries, leaving the closest thing to a voice of the people in the hands of conservative groups inclined to the use of terror. Bill advocates empowering those (left, labor, peace and environmental) movements that constructively advocate for people's interests and eliminate the conditions of terrorism instead of targeting terrorists.

Short Description: 
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.
