* Alan Greenspan vs. Naomi Klein on the Iraq War, Bush's Tax Cuts, Economic
Populism, Crony Capitalism and More *

In a Democracy Now! exclusive debate, former federal reserve chairman Alan
Greenspan and journalist Naomi Klein square off on the Iraq war, oil,
President Bush tax cuts, social security, economic populism in Latin
America, corruption and crony capitalism. Greenspan headed the central bank
in the United States for almost two decades. He has written a new 500-page
memoir titled, "The Age of Turbulence: Adventures in a New World."


* Blackwater Back on Patrol in Baghdad as Shootings Probe Continues *

On Monday, the Iraqi government said it will await the outcome of an
investigation into last Sunday's killing of at least 11 people by Blackwater
USA in Baghdad before taking any action against the company. The statement
comes one day after Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said the shooting
deaths pose "a serious challenge to the sovereignty of Iraq." We speak with
Jeremy Scahill, author of "Blackwater: the Rise of the World's Most Powerful
Mercenary Army."
