Flashpoints – March 12, 2008

We look at displaced persons as a result of the Iraq War and the Failure of the US government to respond to Katrina. We talk to the president of the hip hop caucus about Iraq five years into the war and get an on the ground update from Malik Raheem in New Orleans. Also we’ll go to Tuscon where a border agent dodges a murder conviction. And Kristen Ess reports from the west bank on the Palestinian authorities continuing crack down on Journalists. All that straight ahead on Flashpoints. Stay tuned.
