In A Zone

Some days you are simply ON and today was one of those days for Amy Goodman and DemocracyNOW. Today’s installment was extraordinary in both the level of insightful information revealed as well as the quality of interviews conducted. In the first segment, The Pinochet Principle: Bush Defends Torture in the Name of National Security, Amy spoke with Michael Ratner president of the Center for Constitutional Rights about U.S. torture policy, Attorney General John Ashcroft’s appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee, and the Reagan legacy. In her second segment, Remembering the Dead: Reagan Armed Iraq and Iran in 1980s War That Killed Over 1 Million, she spoke with 2003 Nobel Peace Prize winner Shirin Ebadi. The final segment, The Reagan-Saddam Connection: “We Create These Monsters And When It’s Not Convenient We Cover Them Up”, Amy interviews journalist Alan Friedman.
