program date: 
Mon, 03/16/2009

Host Per Fagereng speaks with Pepe Escobar, reporter for "The Asia Times" about Afghanistan.

An extreme traveler, Pepe's nose for news takes him to all corners of the globe. He was in Afghanistan and interviewed the military leader of the anti-Taliban Northern Alliance, Ahmad Shah Masoud, a couple of weeks before his assassination (Masoud: From warrior to statesman, Sept 11, 2001). Two weeks before September 11, while Pepe was in the tribal areas of Pakistan, "The Asia Times" published his prophetic piece, Get Osama! Now! Or else .   (Aug 30, 2001).

Pepe was one of the first journalists to reach Kabul after the Taliban's retreat, and more recently he has explored and reported from "Axis of Evil" countries Iraq and Iran.

Another segment from Democracy Now! March 3, 2009, Amy’s guests brought attention to a Census taking device that should concern us all. Districts in many states count the prisoners of the local penitentiary in their census and thus become eligible for the same budget and political benefits as a district that does not have a prison. In some cases the prison population is as much as 88 per cent of the Census count.
