Funding Evil, and libel tourism tonight at 9PM Eastern

You can listen to the archived podcast here

BlogTalkRadio
In tonight's podcast my guests, along with Siggy,
are Rachel Ehrenfeld, author of Funding Evil, Updated: How Terrorism is Financed and How to Stop It.
The book the Saudis don't want you to read


and Cinnamon Stillwell, who has been reporting on libel tourism

At question is the publication of books and other writings
that seek to shed light on the financing of Islamic terrorism. Increasingly, American authors who dare enter this territory are finding themselves at risk of being sued for libel in the much more plaintiff-friendly British court system in what amounts to an attempt to censor their work on an international level.
What is at stake is not only the war on terrorists, but also the First Ammendment rights at the core of our nation.

Join us tonight for this podcast at 9PM Eastern.

great guests...this is a developing situation. It *really* does appear that we're the only ones left with free speech...

...if we can keep Congress (a pox on McCain Feingold) and the courts off our necks.
