Antiwar Radio: Stephen Webster

Stephen Webster, Senior Editor at RawStory.com, discusses why Libyan leader Muammer Gaddafi will either be deposed or killed within the next several days; the spectacle of Gaddafis incoherent, angry and bizarre speech; how the New York Times agreed yet again to withhold information at the White Houses request, this time about accused murderer Raymond Daviss CIA employment; how US demands for Daviss release could lead to a popular uprising in Pakistan or war; and Irans provocative but hardly threatening naval transit through the Suez Canal.

Stephen Webster, Senior Editor at RawStory.com, discusses the Egyptian Army’s wavering support for protesters, causing the crowds to thin significantly; Israel’s strong support for Mubarak – not the sort of endorsement typically sought by Arab leaders; how WikiLeaks documents, anonymous hackers and alternative communications have aided and perpetuated the budding Mideast revolutions; the pro-Mubarak goon squads beating journalists; and how Al Jazeera compares with Western mainstream media in terms of protest coverage.

Stephen Webster, Senior Editor at RawStory.com, discusses the WikiLeaks-revealed diplomatic cable that shows how the US got troops stationed in Colombia by dodging legislative review; close cooperation between the US embassy and then-President Álvaro Uribe Vélez to escalate the US military presence (that regional rival Venezuela viewed as war preparation); how the mainstream media proves its worthlessness by refusing to properly investigate the gold mine of WikiLeaks revelations; evidence of State Department lobbying on behalf of US corporations and lobbies including the MPAA and Monsanto; and why net neutrality and internet freedom remain under threat (to the delight of China-admirer Joe Lieberman).
