Flashpoints – August 26, 2005

5000 soccer fans in Haiti witness a machete massacre of up to 50 victims by national police, we’ll have a special report from Kevin Pina on the ground; also, we’ll visit the Peace House on the perimeter of the Bush Ranch, where the alternative media has been getting the word out about Cindy Sheehan and the growing movement against the war; we’ll feature a report on the trial of CIA asset and mastermind of the 1976 Cuban airline bombing Luis Posada Carilles; headlines from the region, a commentary by Miguel Molina; and Flashpoints en Español.
