October 14, 2007 No Talking Heads

This show will be your last chance to pledge to KAOS during No Talking Heads! If you've enjoyed the show and would like to support community radio, please consider pledging during the show or online.

This week's show will feature a recording of Josh Rushing, captured Wednesday, September 26th at South Puget Sound Community College, right here in Olympia. Not only is Josh's story simply unbelievable, he's able to make the strong case for independent media - and the point is made that much stronger since he's a "Texas boy" who went into the military. Please listen this week.

"Although a civil case such as this could take years to see a courtroom, it is the first attempt by family members of those killed in the attack to seek damages inside the United States. It mirrors a similar effort, underway since 2004, to sue contractors allegedly involved in abuse and torture at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, a case that could go forward in coming months. Judge Reggie B. Walton was assigned today to hear the Blackwater case."
