State Secrets and the Obama Administration

program date: 
Wed, 03/25/2009

The Bush administration hid behind the state secrets privilege to spy on the American people. President Obama promised change but recent court battles suggest the threats to our civil liberties will continue.  Will the Obama administration continue to use the privilege of the presidency to hide unconstitutional actions from the public?   We The People talked to Portland attorney Tom Nelson earlier this week to discuss how a local case of illegal spying could shed some light on the future of government surveillance on Americans.

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.

Guest co-host Wael Elasady of Students United for Palestinian Equal Rights will join William Seaman for a discussion of political prisoners in Israel and Israeli war crimes in Gaza and resistance to the Apartheid Wall at Ni'iln, where a young volunteer from California, Tristan Anderson, was critically injured by a teargas canister fired by Israeli troops.

Our first guest, Mr. Jaber Wishah, is the Deputy Director of the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights in Gaza, and a former political prisoner. He spent fifteen years in Israeli prisons and was released in September of 1999. He was involved in the political and military resistance and transitioned to doing human rights monitoring work in Gaza with PCHR.

We'll be talking about the direct action protests against the occupation and about Tristan Anderson, the young man who was injured by the Israeli teargas canister. The latest reports indicate that Mr. Anderson's condition remains critical and unstable.
