Medea Benjamin v. President Obama: CodePink Founder Disrupts Speech, Criticizing Drone, Gitmo Policy 24.5.2013 Democracy Now!
During President Obama's first major counterterrorism address of his second term, he said the United States cannot continue waging what he described as a boundless global war on terror. He also discussed his administration's efforts to close down the U.S. military prison at Guantánamo Bay. He was repeatedly confronted by CodePink's Medea Benjamin in the audience, ultimately stopping his speech to address her directly. We air the complete exchange between them. "The voice of that woman is worth paying attention to," Obama said in response to Benjamin. "Obviously, I do not agree with much of what she said. And obviously she wasn't listening to me in much of what I said. But these are tough issues, and the suggestion that we can gloss over them is wrong." "Click here to see our interview with Benjamin about her act of civil disobedience.":/2013/5/24/that_woman_is_worth_paying_attention

After 3 Trials, Memphis Prisoner Timothy McKinney Wins Freedom by Pleading Guilty to Crime He Denies 22.5.2013 Democracy Now!
In order to win his newfound freedom, Memphis death row prisoner Timothy McKinney had to plead guilty to a murder he maintains he did not commit. McKinney was initially convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to death for the fatal shooting of police officer Don Williams in December 1997. McKinney appealed and won a new trial, which ended with a deadlocked jury. A third trial earlier this year also ended in a hung jury. As part of a plea deal that could set him free as early as today, McKinney pleaded guilty to second-degree murder. Since McKinney has spent almost 16 years in prison, including 11 on death row, he is immediately eligible for release on time served. We're joined by The Nation magazine's Liliana Segura, who has extensively covered McKinney's case.
