Sunday Salon – October 1, 2006

In our first hour…

There’s just one month left before the general election. Recent elections
have seen trouble with electronic voting machines, hanging chads, and
possible fraud — will your vote count?

Again: How the Right Stole the 2004 Elections and Why They’ll Steal This
One, Too (Unless We Stop Them)" (Basic Books)

Polls, Election Fraud, and the Official Count" (Seven Stories)

In our second hour…

The Bush Administration gives a lot of lip-service to diplomacy as a way to
handle international relations, but in many cases has shown it prefers to
use the military. A discussion with two former diplomats:

John Brady Kiesling resigned from the U.S. Foreign Service on February 25,
2003, after almost 20 years in the State Department in protest of the U.S.
plans to invade Iraq. (www.bradykiesling.com)

Craig Murray is a former British Ambassador to Uzbekistan. He’s now a
writer and broadcaster, known as an outspoken critic of Western policy.
