Today on a special bi-coastal edition of Flashpoints, We go to West Point for a live broadcast of US President Barack Obama’s intentions to escalate the war in Afghanistan; with co-host Robert Knight, we’ll have analysis of the speech, a look at the possible parallels in policy between Afghanistan and Vietnam, and we’ll be joined by award-winning independent journalist and Flashpoints special correspondent Dahr Jamail to assess the impact the war is having on soldiers and their families and to report on the growing military resistance movement.

  • Musicians!!

    We're searching for great new music produced by independent musicians and members of our global audience, so that we can be as non-corporate and copyright-free as possible. All genres -- from blues to electronica to world beats -- welcome!

    We like smart, political and well-produced music -- and are especially in search of possible new theme instrumentals. Please send it to Flashpoints, c/o KPFA, 1929 Martin Luther King Jr. Way, Berkeley, CA 94704, or email your Mp3s at with full descriptions and credits.
