  1. Will there be an interview re Gaza? instead of going over red herrings. And will we hear a Palestinian or will we have to settle for an American/Israeli?

  2. I second Alex… AW Radio has gone quite stale in terms of relevance (and Scott has gone quite chatty and random) over the past couple months

  3. I actually heard a lot of things in this interview I hadn’t read/heard before — I don’t obsess over this subject and would assume lots of other people don’t as well and so this interview is quite enlightening…thanks scott…

  4. I like your commentary Scott and believe your show is of high quality, however, Gaza is relevant and so rarely do we hear a Gazan's point of view that it would be somewhat groundbreaking if it were to happen.


    Are you sure you do not mean, "I don't obsess over this subject because of my politics regarding [it]"?

  5. Hey Cockburn, where’s Osama bin Laden? Shouldn’t he have something to say about Gaza? I want to see his new un-Islamic beard style! Maybe his handlers were too busy celebrating Christmas and Chanukah to put together the new tape?
