Imprisoning Lawyers and Middle East Wars

Today on the Weekend Interview Show (4-6pm Eastern Time), I’ll be talking with civil rights attorney and author Elaine Cassel about the case of Lynn Stewart. The lawyer for the bomber of the World Trade Center in 1993, Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman, Stewart was convicted on February 10th of “providing material support” to terrorism.

In the second hour, I’ll have war correspondent, author and columnist Eric Margolis from the Toronto Sun on to talk about Middle East Policy.

Update: Show’s over. Archives here
