Huwaida Arraf, lawyer and co-founder of the International Solidarity Movement (ISM):

Today on Flashpoints, NATO ratchets up its bombing campaign in Tripoli, Libya, even as negotiations begin in Turkey we are joined again by our special correspondent Mahdi Nazemroaya. We also get another perspective of what’s going on in Libya from Scott Taylor, the editor of Espirit de Corps, a military policy magazine. Up next the Freedom Flotilla 2 has one of its ships boarded and seized by Israeli Commandos 40 miles off the coast of Gaza today. Then we take another look at the claims of the Pentagon and the Obama administration that drone attacks, particularly in Pakistan, target only enemies while lowering innocent civilian casualties. Finally, we take a look at a telecommunications bribery scandal involving two former Haitian government officials alleged to have taken place while former president Jean-Bertrand Aristide was in office.
