Iraqis Fearful that U.S. Will Renege on Troop Withdrawal Deadline; Stage Angry Protests

Interview with Raed Jarrar, political analyst, conducted by Scott Harris

With the uprisings across the Middle East and North Africa, the ongoing war in Afghanistan and the debate on the U.S. debt and budget crisis at home, America’s continued military occupation of Iraq has almost completely been absent from recent media coverage. Large protests have been occurring inside Iraq, where demonstrators have denounced government corruption and the lack of basic services, such as electricity and water. Sometimes violent protests demanded the resignations of local government officials over the issues of high unemployment, repair of the electrical power grid and a corrupt judicial system. In late February, an estimated 20 demonstrators were killed by Iraqi security forces during running street battles that also saw the burning of government offices.  Story continues

One Year After BP Oil Spill Disaster, Environmental and Economic Destruction Difficult to Calculate

Interview with Darryl Malek-Wiley, environmental justice organizer with the Sierra Club, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

April 20 marked the one-year anniversary of the blow-out of British Petroleum’s Macondo deepwater oil well in the Gulf of Mexico, which killed 11 oil rig workers and spilled 190 million gallons of crude oil into Gulf waters and the adjoining coastline before being capped three months later. Since then, estimates of damage have varied, with the Obama administration claiming that most of the oil has now disappeared -- through recovery, evaporation or dissipated by microbes. But others assert the damage is more pervasive and ongoing.  Story continues

Economic and Political Power of Oil Industry Succeeds in Weakening Deep Water Drilling Regulations

Interview with Antonia Juhasz, author of "Black Tide: The Devastating Impact of the Gulf Oil Spill" , conducted by Scott Harris

oilrigfire

While the vast environmental and economic damage from last year’s BP oil spill is still being calculated, deep water oil drilling has now resumed in the Gulf of Mexico. Soon after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster, the Obama administration’s Interior Department imposed a moratorium on deepwater drilling, but under pressure from the oil industry and their conservative political allies, the moratorium was lifted in October 2010.  Story continues
