Arundhati Roy - Terrorism: No Easy Answers (interview)

Host David Barsamian speaks with Arundhati Roy, the celebrated author of "The God of Small Things" and winner of the prestigious Booker Prize. "The New York Times" calls her, "India's most impassioned critic of globalization and American influence." Howard Zinn praises her "powerful commitment to social justice." She is the recipient of the Lannan Award for Cultural Freedom. Her latest books are "The Checkbook & the Cruise Missile," a collection of interviews with David Barsamian, and "An Ordinary Person's Guide to Empire."

There are myriad types of terrorism. But the focus is highly selective. 200,000 Indian farmers killing themselves because of debt or 4,000 children dying everyday around the world because of no access to clean water are not considered. Nor are massacres of Muslims in the Indian states of Gujarat and Maharashtra or of Sikhs
in New Delhi.  Nor are the tens of thousands of Kashmiris killed by the Indian military. The attention and emphasis is overwhelmingly on car bombings, 9/11 and Mumbai type of attacks. Massive state terrorism is not up for discussion unless the state is a designated enemy of Washington's such as Iran and Syria. America and its allies
such as Israel and India get a free pass. Can you imagine Charlie Rose or Wolf Blitzer asking Kissinger or Rice or other apparatchiks of the empire about state terrorism? Maybe when pigs fly.

Civil Liberties Watch: Supreme Court Ruling Rocks Indian Country

Evening News
program date: 
Tue, 03/17/2009

A February, United States Supreme Court Ruling has sent rumbles through Indian Country. The ruling in Carcieri v. Salazar handed down by the Roberts court throws into dispute the sovereignty of land recovered by tribes not recognized before the 1934 enactment of The Indian Reorganization Act. The decision turns on its head over 70 years of legal interpretation by the courts and by the Department of the Interior. The Narrangasett Tribe inside Rhode Island are the immediate losers in the case but have vowed to fight what they see as the " latest attempt at Judicial Termination" referring to the illegal state dissolution of the tribe in 1810.
