Flashpoints – March 17, 2004

Today on Flashpoints, we present a breaking story on false translation of
what the US embassy called Jean Bertrand Aristide’s resignation; we continue
our coverage of pro-democracy activists now in hiding in Haiti facing
beatings, torture, prison and assassination; a massive car-bombing of a
downtown Baghdad Hotel kills more than 25 and wounds scores. We’ll speak to
a reporter from Al-Jezera about the bombing and about US coverage of the
war. We’ll be joined in studio by Laura Flanders talking about Bush women.
And of course, the Knight Report.
