Talk is Cheap: Women in Mideast with Jay Leno, Segment 1

1 week 2 days ago
WARNING: The Feminist Majority came out in favor of the Afghan war after this lecture. They mention Voice of America which is always suspect. What I remember about this event in Los Angeles in late 2000 is that they wanted to end the sanctions in Iraq. This is one of the reasons I know the Reichstag fire of 2001 was a Reichstag fire. We were winning. Iran Contra, Nevada Test Site, The battle in Seattle and groups like these were advocating an end to Corporatism and Militarism. My tape deck is too fast but you can still tell its Jay and Mavis Leno. I'm ordering a new tape deck as I'm uploading this.
