2/15/19 Daniel McAdams on the Death of Congressman Walter Jones

Daniel McAdams remembers Congressman Walter Jones, who passed away last week. Jones initially supported the War in Iraq, but after realizing his mistake began trying everything in his power to atone for it. He wrote over 12,000 letters to killed and wounded soldiers and their families, and was a vocal opponent of subsequent wars. Jones’ efforts were crucial in getting the House of Representatives to vote on ending U.S. support for the war in Yemen.

2/15/19 Ali Abunimah on the Israel Lobby’s Double Standard

Ali Abunimah comments on the recent controversy surrounding Minnesota’s Representative Ilhan Omar and her tweets about the Israel lobby’s influence in American politics. Unlike virtually any other lobby, explains Abunimah, AIPAC seems to be off limits in the public discourse. Even after fairly mild comments, like Omar’s, the outrage runs rampant and backtracking and apologies are demanded. Scott and Abunimah wish Omar would have stuck to her guns instead.
