Tonight on Counterpoint

8:00 p.m. - Counterpoint, hosted by Scott Harris

  • Joanne, Mariner of Human Rights Watch who talks about a coalition of human rights groups that have compiled the names of 39 people who are believed to have been held in secret US custody and whose current whereabouts remain unknown.
  • BBC-TV reporter Greg Palast who talks about his investigation which led to U.S. Attorney Tim Griffin's resignation, a close associate of White House political strategist Karl Rove. This was apparantly in reaction to email documentation obtained by Palast, showing that Griffin was involved in challenging minority voters for the 2004 Bush-Cheney campaign. These documents were recently requested by House Judiciary Committee Chair John Conyers.
  • Report on "a major protest in Washington, D.C. on the 40th anniversary of Israel's illegal military occupation of the Palestinian West Bank, Gaza Strip, and East Jerusalem."
  • Kica Matos, the City of New Haven's social-services chief and advocate for immigrants' rights, who discusses federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids and arrests of 29 illegal immigrants in New Haven, two days after the city approved a program to make municipal identification cards available to them.
