We’ll speak to our special correspondent Ahmed Habib about the current situation inside US-occupied Iraq, as the theater of elections and vote recounts distract the mainstream media from the ongoing destruction of Iraqi lives across the country; and Peter Phillips and Mickey Huff of Project Censored talk about the truth emergency in the US and run down several censored news stories you may have missed this year if you just watched the evening news or read the New York Times.

    Hello, I just listened to this program and really liked it. Could someone please tell me the name of the rap song that was played between interviews?

  2. Flashpoints says:

    hi Christina,
    thanks so much!
    The song was “Watch What You Say” by Guru featuring Chaka Khan on one of the Jazzmatazz records from the 1990s. Guru passed away last night after a long battle with cancer, and we all mourn his loss as a pioneer in hip hop.
    Best,
    the Flashpoints team
