The Strange Case of a Rwanda Refugee Applicant. Rwanda and the role of alternative media. Double Standard on Terrorism.

Featured Guest(s):
Lisa Winter-Card, Ann Garrison, Keith Bolender

Immigration lawyer Lisa Winter-Card discusses the strange case of Rwandan refugee applicant, Jean Berchment Habinshuti, who faces deportation
from Canada.

The case is strange because Habinshuti served as secretary to Prime Minister Agathe Uwilingiyimana, who was assassinated in 1994, and was widely perceived as a moderate. The present Rwandan government has a well-earned reputation for persecution of dissent. As Ms Lisa Winter-Card makes clear, Mr. Habinshuti is at risk.

In an unusual turn of events, KPFA host and journalist Ann Garrison interviews our host, Phil Taylor.

Edward S. Herman identified Western reporting on Rwanda as the greatest victory of the propaganda system in recent decades. In the context of trials over Rwanda, Phil and Ann explore the challenges faced by alternative radio programmers in countering the corporate media consensus.

Phil interviews Keith Bolender, author of "Voices from the other side," an oral history of terrorism against Cuba, and "Cuba Under Siege."

Keith talks about the arrest in Cuba of four terrorists based in Miami, Florida, who were planning to attack a Cuban military base in April 2014.

He also discusses the U.S. double standard on terrorism with regard to the "Cuban Five."

Adam Jones on Rwanda and Genocide: A Reply
Edward S. Herman and David Peterson

Like Gerald Caplan's hostile "review" of our book, The Politics of Genocide, Adam Jones's aggressive attack on our response to Caplan can be explained in significant part by Jones's deep commitment to an establishment narrative on the Rwandan genocide that we believe to be false -- one that misallocates the main responsibility for that still ongoing disaster, but dominates by virtue of political interests and intellectual conformity.1  Caplan devoted perhaps 5 percent of his "review" to our book, and the remaining 95 percent to an attack on us for our treatment of Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.  But Jones went Caplan one better, ignoring our book altogether (which at the time of his writing Jones did not appear to ha...

Genocide Denial and Genocide Facilitation: Gerald Caplan and The Politics of Genocide
Edward S. Herman and David Peterson

In his June 17 "review" of our book The Politics of Genocide, for Pambazuka News,1 Gerald Caplan, a Canadian writer who Kigali's New Times described as a "leading authority on Genocide and its prevention,"2 focuses almost exclusively on the section we devote to Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.3  Caplan s
