Marsha Coleman Adebayo has protested racism within the Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Civil Rights -- can you believe it? -- and finally the agency says it's investigating. Have you ever tried to draw attention to a big, bad situation in your workplace? Whistleblowers--how they impact your life and what they risk in coming forward.  My guest tomorrow morning on Kboo 90.7 FM is Richard Renner, legal director of the National Whistleblowers Center.

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.

Robert Fisk/Araxie Barsamian - The Armenian Holocaust (lecture)

Robert Fisk/Araxie Barsamian - The Armenian Holocaust (lecture)

In 1915, the Turkish government launched a premeditated organized campaign to eliminate the millennia-old Armenian people from their traditional homeland in what is now southeastern Turkey. The Turkish officials responsible for the genocide were never brought to account. This was not lost on Adolf Hitler. Just days before launching World War Two he told his generals, "Who today, after all, speaks of the annihilation of the Armenians?" What makes the 20th century's first holocaust unique is that Turkey refuses to acknowledge it ever happen. And that denial is the final stage of genocide: closure and justice is denied to the victims and their descendents.

Do you like a mystery? Then I have one for you. It’s the mysterious case of Dr. Aafia Siddiqui.

This American educated, Pakistani neuroscientist, and her 3 young children disappeared in Pakistan in 2003. Did she go underground with al-Quaeda or was she kidnapped by the US and Pakistan? That question has never been answered.What we do know is that she reappeared in 2008. Picked up by authorities in Afghanistan, she was shot in the stomach and accused of attempting to kill US soldiers. In February she was sentenced to an astonishing 86 years in Federal prison despite the complete lack of forensic evidence to support the prosecutions case.
