Flashpoints – August 11, 2005

A series of massacres by Haitian death squad police leave dozens wounded and dead, including a pregnant woman and a teenager; also we’ll return to Crawford, Texas to check in with the Gold Star anti-war activists calling for an end to the Iraq war; we’ll also speak with Rahul Mahajan about the ongoing killing in Iraq, as the US sacks the mayor of Baghdad; plus headlines from occupied Palestine; and Earth Matters exposes how Bush wants to leave no tree behind in the wake of Oregon’s Biscuit fire.
