MP3 One Segment 
The program begins with discussion of the growing power, influence and respectability of the Moon organization. (San Jose Mercury News, 8/19/2000, p. E1.)
1. The quoted article describes “church members elected to state legislatures in the United States; and a global network of businesses, including hotels, newspapers, radio and TV stations, car plants, restaurants and magazines, such as Golf Digest.” (Idem.)
2. Speaking of Bayou La Batre (Alabama), the article continues: “unificationists run several of the town’s largest and most successful businesses; their shipbuilding company does repair work for the U.S. Coast Guard and Navy.” (Idem.) The Moon organization has strong historical links to Japanese fascism and the former World Anti-Communist League, as well as alleged involvement in mind control techniques (according to its critics.) In recent years, former President George Bush has been doing speeches for the Moon organization.
3. Next, the broadcast highlights the role of the FBI in evaluating mergers between foreign telecommunications firms and American companies. (The Wall Street Journal, 8/24/2000, pp. A1, A8.)
4. Special Agent Alan McDonald has played a large role in assuring that those mergers conform to the Bureau’s electronic counter-intelligence requirements. (Idem.)
5. A recent acquisition of American Internet company Verio by Nippon Telegraph & Telephone Company (53% owned by the Japanese government) underscores the issues involved in such acquisitions. (Idem.) The NTT acquisition of Verio also spotlights the Deutsche Telekom purchase of VoiceStream.
6. The FBI’s “Carnivore” E‑mail monitoring system has recently been targeted by media critics. In this program, Mr. Emory voices his support for the Carnivore system, and other electronic counter-intelligence and surveillance systems. He points out that any major intelligence and/or federal police agency must have the capability to conduct wiretaps and other forms of monitoring and eavesdropping. The issue of preventing abuse of such capabilities (a difficult, but necessary undertaking) is a separate issue. It is unlikely that a corrupt (or indifferent) society will engender an intelligence or federal police agency that conducts itself with integrity. Consequently, it is important that citizens strive to reform the society as a whole. This viewpoint should not be misunderstood as an endorsement of violations of civil liberties by police or intelligence agencies.
7. On the subject of violations of civil liberties, the program highlights the abuse of the rights of Wen Ho Lee, the Taiwan-born scientist accused of spying for the People’s Republic of China. (San Francisco Examiner, 8/23/2000, p. A23.)
8. An FBI agent testified in court that he had “inadvertently” misinformed the court about Lee’s behavior. Among the inadvertently stated items: “Lee had failed a lie detector test, which in fact he passed with very high marks; that Lee failed to disclose a 1980’s meeting with Chinese scholars, which he’d reported to his superiors at the time, and that Lee had lied to a Los Alamos colleague about his purpose in downloading files, despite a grand jury record to the contrary.” (Idem.)
9. Documents indicating that Lee and his wife worked for the CIA for many years received less publicity than initial exposure of the charges against him. (San Jose Mercury News, 8/11/2000, p. 10A.)
10. The disclosure of this information influenced the judge overseeing the case. He ruled that Lee’s counsel could utilize the documents for Lee’s defense. (Idem.)
11. Next, the discussion turns to allegations that noted singer, actor, athlete, and political activist Paul Robeson may have been subjected to mind control by elements of U.S. intelligence. (The Nation, 12/20/1999, p. 9.)
12. Authored by Paul Robeson Jr. (his son), the article discusses both CIA and FBI interest in Robeson’s health; their reluctance to release documents about Robeson in response to a FOIA suit; indications that he may have been poisoned by anti-Soviet elements while at a party in Moscow; Robeson’s incarceration in an English psychiatric hospital; his treatment with ECT, and his son’s efforts to get him out of the hospital. (Idem.)
13. The program concludes with a look at a humanitarian award given to Dr. Jack Kevorkian. (Counterpunch, 5/1–15/2000, pp.1, 6.)
14. A leading proponent of euthanasia, Kevorkian advocates experimenting on living prisoners, who have been sentenced to die. (Idem.)
15. Among the public notables who voted to give the award to Kevorkian was Gloria Steinem, whose CIA background is discussed in M‑4. (Idem.) (Recorded on 8/27/2000.)
