Interview with Bruce Fein, former assistant deputy attorney general under President Ronald Reagan, conducted by Scott Harris
Under President Bush, many terrorist suspects who were rounded up after the 9/11 attacks were designated as "unlawful enemy combatants" and imprisoned without charge or trial at the Guantanamo Bay, Cuba U.S. detention camp and elsewhere. When then-Illinois state Sen. Barack Obama ran for the presidency, he pledged to both close down Guantanamo and reverse what he and many other civil liberties advocates declared were Bush administration violations of the U.S. Constitution and the rule of law.

Interview with Josh Hough, communications director with the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, conducted by Melinda Tuhus
The new year started off violently in the occupied West Bank of Palestine, when a 36-year-old woman, Jawaher Abu Rahmah, was overcome by tear gas fired by the Israeli Army at protesters in the town of Bi'lin on Dec. 31st. Jawaher died on New Year's Day. Villagers who participate in a weekly protest are joined each Friday by Israeli supporters and international solidarity activists demanding the rerouting of the separation barrier Israel has built which cuts villagers off from their land. The Israeli Supreme Court has ruled in the Palestinians' favor, but the barrier remains. Story continues
Interview with Wendell Potter, former health insurance executive turned whistle-blower, conducted by Scott Harris
In their first week as the new majority in the House of Representatives, the Republican party has pledged to schedule a vote to repeal the health care reform law passed by the previous Democratic Congress and signed into law by President Obama. With a 49-seat advantage in the House, the GOP will almost certainly succeed in passing repeal legislation. But with a Democratic Senate and the power of a presidential veto standing in their way, the Republican's repeal effort will merely be a symbolic gesture toward their conservative base. Acknowledging the obstacles of repeal, House GOP leaders say they will attempt to de-fund implementation of the new health care reform law. Story continues
