Ed Corrigan on death of American democracy; Binoy Kampmark on Bin Laden myths

Friday 5/15 - Listen live - 8 to 10 pm Eastern on Revolution Radio: http://www.freedomslips.com/  - click on the "Studio B" button. To be rebroadcast Sunday 11 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Eastern on http://NoLiesRadio.org  and then archived at the usual spot.


First hour: Canadian lawyer and journalist Ed Corrigan specializes in immigration and refugee law – and in speaking truth to power. A recent Common Dreams article quotes his Press TV interview: "Libya was quite a stable and very prosperous country in the past; it had free healthcare, free education, and a lot of benefits for the Libyan population. There was no mass immigration from Libya at that time. But when the West weighed in and overthrew Gaddafi, basically Libya was turned into a failed state. In this situation, people would be desperate to get out of that terrible environment. This [turmoil] in Libya is creation of the West, and exactly the same is happening in Syria." 

As it destroys other countries, the US (with Zionist help) is destroying itself. In this interview, Ed Corrigan details the death of American democracy, and explains how we can fight back and win.
Second hour: Dr. Binoy Kampmark's new article "Why the Surprise? Lies, Lies, and The Death of Bin Laden" points out that:

"...little regarding accounts of the man’s life, be it his vocation as a terrorist, or his ultimate death, could ever be regarded as credible. All that he seemed to touch turned to myth. The cult of mendacity has met the cult of the disingenuous, from the time the 'War on terror' was declared to the pornographic violence of Zero Dark Thirty, a sort of haloing of the American effort against unmitigated evil that culminated in that fatal night in Abbottabad."

Dr. Binoy Kampmark was a Commonwealth Scholar at Selwyn College, Cambridge. He lectures at RMIT University, Melbourne.

  1. I thought it disingenuous of Mr. Corrigan to criticize Palestinians for not speaking out. When the Gov't of Canada has stated that persons who support the BDS will be prosecuted under Canada's Hate Laws!
