The Bush Crony Who Tortured American Teens, Part II
Why is a man who should be prosecuted for torture appointed by President George W. Bush as Ambassador to Italy?
On Thursday’s show, This Bush Crony Has Blood on his Hands!, THE INSIDE SCOOP was the first radio show to report on STRAIGHT, Inc., the teen-age rehab center more akin to a torture camp run by Melvin and Betty Sembler. Melvin Sembler was for many years until a few months ago, George W. Bush’s U.S. Ambassador to Italy.
The testimonials from victims of this place were so horrific and so numerous that we barely scratched the surface. So reporter John Gorenfeld has agreed to come back to discuss this story this Sunday.
My second guest, Dr. Arnold Trebach, Justice Chief for the U.S. Civil Rights Commission during the Civil Rights Era of 1960-65, is Professor Emeritus at American University and Founder of The Drug Policy Foundation in Washington, DC. For two decades, Dr. Trebach has been investigating STRAIGHT.
My third and most important “guests” are the many survivors of Sembler’s torture and abuse that have agreed to call in as well.
You won’t want to miss today’s show!
If you were a victim of STRAIGHT or you know an on-going drug rehab center where physical and mental abuse occurs, you are strongly encouraged to call in today’s show.
