Flashpoints – June 15, 2006

Legendary filmmaker John Pilger talks about the wars and occupations in Iraq and Palestine, and the pathetic state of Western journalism; also, a report on the brutal free trade zones in Jordan, where raping and beating slave wage workers is not uncommon; an update on Paul LaRudee, a piano tuner, human rights activist and friend of Flashpoints being detained by Israeli officials in Tel Aviv; and the Knight Report.
