Medea Benjamin and Greg Palast

For the first half of the program, Peter and Mickey speak with author and Code-Pink
cofounder Medea Benjamin; her new book, ?Kingdom of the Unjust,? examines the
history of U.S.-Saudi Arabian relations, and how the two governments remain close
despite the Saudis? repressing their own population, fighting a war in Yemen,
and promoting the Wahabist version of Islam across the Mideast and beyond.
In the second half-hour, investigative journalist Greg Palast speaks about his
latest investigations into voter disenfranchisement, which is carried out primarily
(but not exclusively) by Republican secretaries of state. Palast has a new article in
the Rolling Stone, and a forthcoming documentary film, ?The Best Democracy Money
Can Buy.?
