Cheney's Role in CIA Leak Exposed


* Rosa Parks 1913-2005: We Air A Rare 1956 Interview With Parks During the
Montgomery Bus Boycott *

Civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks has died at the age of 92. It was 50 years
ago this December that she refused to relinquish her seat to a white man
aboard a city bus in Montgomery, Alabama. Her act of resistance led to a
13-month boycott of the Montgomery bus system that would spark the civil
rights movement. We go back to 1956 to air a rare interview aired on KPFA
with Parks.


* John Conyers On Rosa Parks: ³She Earned the Title as Mother of the Civil
Rights Movement.² *

We speak with Rep. John Conyers (D-Michigan), who worked with Parks for over
a decade. Conyers remembers Parks¹ life and speaks about the possibility of
a state funeral and a national ³Rosa Parks day.²


* Cheney's Role in CIA Leak Exposed: NYT Says Cheney Gave Valerie Plame's
Name to Libby *

We speak to former CIA analyst Melvin Goodman on the latest development in
the CIA leak case. The New York Times is reporting today that Vice President
Dick Cheney¹s chief of staff Lewis Scooter Libby first learned the identity
of the CIA operative from his boss ­ Dick Cheney.


* The Fallen Legion: Casualties of the Bush Administration *

Several dozen government officials have vacated their posts since the Bush
administration took office. We speak with Nick Turse about some of the more
well-known figures who compile the list of ³the fallen."
