DN! Interview with Tony Benn - AMAZING
You guys really need to listen to this interview, or read the transcript. From the website:

"We have an extended conversation with Tony Benn, one of Britains most distinguished politicians and the longest serving MP in the history of the Labour party. Benn discusses the new revelations the British government helped Israel build the atom bomb. Benn also speaks about U.S. and U.K. relations, extraordinary rendition, Guantanamo Bay, torture, religion, and the state of the media"

Here's the link.

1. I'm listening. It sounds like the Brits are losing their civil
liberties, just as we are.
I liked to hear him say he's no longer under any obligation to believe one thing Blair says.
Now this is a guy I'd love to have a cup of coffee with!

2. I saw it. Very uplifting...
The point about bypassing the mainstream media and finding the truth....all right! And I want a yeah for Amy Goodman, the most beatiful woman in the world. They talked about how to keep your spirits up with so much to despair about. Keep your heads up. Tony was so upbeat. :kick:

4. And he's now heading up the 'Stop The War' Coalition.
Why, oh why, couldn't we be blessed with a leader with his mindset?
