We've all heard her message (or should have by now), but it's always a pleasure to see her in action.

1. Thanks for posting, Professor. It seems far too few US citizens
are aware of the powers granted to the president by the Military Commissions Act and the Defense Authorization Act. Even the host was unfamiliar with the fact that all the president has to do is name a CITIZEN an "enemy combatant" and they can be disappeared.

This deserves wide viewing.



:kick: & rec'd


Peace,

freefall

2. More, and more interesting, here
http://www.wnyc.org/shows/bl/episodes/2007/11/27/segmen...

The full 30 minute interview is here, including lots of callers and another author who wants to pooh pooh NW's thesis. She handles them all very well.

11. this woman is no slouch
she has done her homework on this subject and research, and what she says is true, if we start seeing journalists being arrested for voicing their opinions that will be the next nail in the coffin.
