Ramsey Clark, once the nation's top lawyer, speaks about the human costs of the UN-imposed sanctions on Iraq, where over a million people (mostly children and elderly) have died. He also addresses the legal issues at stake.
Phyllis Bennis, an authority of the United Nations and the Middle East and a fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington, addresses the administration's manipulation of UN resolutions to justify its unilateral stance in this crisis.
Interviewing Clark and Bennis is show host Daniel C. Tsang, who himself was interviewed on KPFK's "Up for Air" yesterday morning about his lawsuit against the CIA for spying on him. Tsang appears this evening at 7 p.m. on the OCN (Orange County's News Channel) "Prime Story" program to address the CIA's flaunting of the U.S. Privacy Act's ban on spying on the First-Amendment protected activities of Americans and permanent residents. The CIA recently had to change its Web-site declaration that it does not spy on Americans, after Tsang's lawyers complained it was untrue. In settling Tsang v. CIA for $46,000, the CIA agreed never to spy on his First-Amendment protected activities again.
