Naomi Klein on "The Shock Doctrine"
Naomi Klein of Canada is an award-winning journalist, author and
filmmaker. Her articles appear in major newspapers and magazines all
over the world. Her documentary film on the economic crisis in
Argentina is "The Take." "No Logo," her book on globalization and
marketing was an international bestseller. Her latest book is "The
Shock Doctrine."

Catastrophes from Katrina to Iraq from Afghanistan to the Asian
Tsunami clear the way for corporations to move in and operate in
newly privatized zones, pushing local government overboard. Kind of
like shock and awe economics. Privatize, privatize, privatize is
intoned like a mantra by the economic high priests of neoliberalism.

The release this week of video footage showing a 16 year old detainee at Guantanamo Bay highlights a Bush Administration policy that's at odds with international law: imprisoning youth caught up in armed conflict. Attorneys for Omar Khadr say teenagers shouldn't be detained and prosecuted for war crimes. Yet the Bush Administration maintains its stance, even filing a motion with a federal appeals court today insisting that the U-S military can detain juveniles on the battlefield. Since 2003, the U-S has detained some 2,400 children in Iraq alone, including children as young as 10 years old. The detention rate rose drastically since last year – to an average of 100 new children arrested per month.
