What's the fallout from the Mohamed Osman Mohamud incident?

The Nov. 26 arrest of 19 year-old Mohamed Osman Mohamud for allegedly attempting to detonate a bomb during the Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Pioneer Courthouse Square raises troubling legal, political, social and moral questions.

Did the FBI derail a dangerous plot or entrap a disaffected youth?

November 29 Old Mole Variety Hour

program date: 
Mon, 11/29/2010

 Joe Clement hosts this show in which we see more  efforts to sell us on policies born of fear: the sting operation resulting in the arrest in Portland of Mohamed Osman Mohamud, the so-called "Christmas Tree Bomber"; stripping us of our dignity in airports with scanners and gropes; and hard-line messages to Iran sent by way of Korea.   Tom Becker shares an Alexander Coburn piece calling for "real mutiny."  And on a happier note, our Movie Moles find joy in a boxing gym through the lens of documentarian Frederick Wiseman.

Fatima Bhutto – Pakistan: The Jackals Rule (lecture)

Fatima Bhutto – Pakistan: The Jackals Rule (lecture)

Pakistan has received billions in U.S. aid. Where is that money? Much of it has gone missing.

The jackals rule in Pakistan. A series of venal military and civilian leaders have devastated and looted the country. Historically, the U.S. has used Pakistan as a strategic asset. Its backing of fundamentalist dictator Zia ul-Haq had disastrous consequences.

It was General Zia who greatly expanded Islamic law and religious schools. And he was a conduit for arming the mujahideen.
