Professor Mel Zimmerman, Wayne Madsen
Phil talks to Mel Zimmerman, a semi-retired professor of French literature currently working on the Kerry campaign in the battle-ground State of Florida. He joined the campaign via an organisation called "Americans Coming Together" and tells of going door-to-door in the working and middle-class areas of Dade County. Mel's knowledge of the French language is invaluable in getting out the Haitian vote in these tri-lingual neighborhoods where literature is normally printed in Creole, Spanish and English. Phil brings up the example of the 2000 election when thousands of African-Americans were effectively dis-enfranchised and discusses with Mel the plans to stop it happening again this time.
Phil also interviews Wayne Madsen, an investigative journalist based in Washington D.C. and previously employed in U.S. military intelligence. Wayne is an experienced and respected political analyst and is the author of "Genocide and Covert Operations in Africa 1993-1999". They discuss the impact of the recent hurricanes on the Presidential election, the destroyed polling-stations, the evacuation process, and the role of the National Guard (sent to Iraq). Phil talks about the issue of Haiti, the overthrow of Pres. Jean-Bertrand Aristide and the lack of attention and press that it is getting. Wayne has a personal family story to tell. They also discuss the Bush administration and its incompetence regarding the shooting of the Iraqi Army recruits and the missing munitions.

Isaac Saney, Wayne Madsen
Phil begins the hour by reading from John Laughland's perceptive article in the Guardian of August 2 exposing the lies about Sudan.
Isaac Saney, speaking from Trinidad, talks with Phil about the "unknown story" of Cuba's selfless and courageous role in helping to defeat South African apartheid. Saney, the author of "Cuba: A Revolution In Motion", derides the US characterization of Cuba as a 'terrorist state' when Cuba has been the victim of numerous terrorist attacks backed by the US government.
Investigative journalist Wayne Madsen talks with Phil about his forthcoming book, "Jaded Tasks: Big Oil, Black Ops and Brass Plates" which the Bush administration is trying to suppress until after the election. Madsen talks about the confluence of big oil companies and mercenaries in Iraq and Africa. Former apartheid special forces, ex-Pinochet presidential police, former Contras, political operatives from Iran/Contra, Cuban exiles and prominent neo-cons are all linked together.
