Mohamed Harkat, an innocent Algerian-Canadian caught up in post-9/11 hysteria, has been living with his wife Sophie Harkat in a situation best described as Franz Kafka’s remake of The Truman Show. For many years, Harkat has been under something approaching house arrest, combined with 24/7/365 surveillance.

Listen to Mohamed and Sophie Harkat on the Kevin Barrett show.

Tomorrow, April 25th, the Federal Court of Appeals will rule on Harkat’s challenge to the “Security Certificate” that has turned his life into an Orwellian nightmare. Harkat will respond to the ruling at a press conference at 1 p.m. in the boardroom of the Ottowa District Labor Council, 280 Metcalfe Street, in Ottowa.

In an interesting twist, still-classified (yet widely-revealed) information suggests that Harkat was falsely accused of involvement in terrorism due to an imaginary or exaggerated connection with another innocent man wrongly suspected of being “al-Qaeda’s banker.” That “banker,” according to his CIA interrogator, whistleblower Glenn Carle, “wasn’t even a member of al-Qaeda.” (Ottowa Citizen)

Additionally, Glenn Carle has his doubts about the alleged al-Qaeda threat itself. He says he discovered, while working as one of the three most senior US advisers on terrorism to the intelligence community, that “the closer one looked at al-Qaeda, the further it receded and the smaller it was.”

Glenn Carle, former CIA interrogator turned whistleblower, will join me on Truth Jihad Radio for a special two-hour interview on Wednesday, May 2nd. Meanwhile, you can read about his revelations relating to Mohamed Harkat here.

THE NEW LAS VEGAS ISN’T ALL CHILD’S PLAY: GLITTER GULCH AIMS AT THE ADULT GAMBLER

With its towering space frame, a light and sound show and a pedestrian mall, Fremont Street Experience is downtown Las Vegas’ answer to attracting gamblers to the area.

And it’s gamblers, not necessarily families, it wants.

A recent study by a downtown Las Vegas association suggests visitors bringing children to Las Vegas will gravitate toward the Strip with its “family-oriented” entertainment.

It also underlined what developers of the Fremont Street Experiment had hoped: Visitors serious about gambling and those attracted to the famous bright lights of “Glitter Gulch” will settle into one of the many downtown hotels.

The Fremont Street Experience is a $70 million facelift to a five-block area of Fremont Street in the downtown section of town.

The street has been closed to automobile traffic and is now a gleaming pedestrian mall with decorative paving and palm trees.

It will provide the display system for a nightly light and sound show of more than 2.1 million lights and 208 speakers able to crank out 540,000 watts of sound.

To handle the crowds coming to see the attraction, a new 1,400-space parking garage has been built. A 45,000-square-foot shopping plaza should be completed by the summer of 1996.

“The development of the Fremont Street Experience as a must-see attraction’ clearly allows downtown Las Vegas to position itself comparably with the new developments along the Las Vegas Strip,” Donald D. Synder, president of the Fremont Street Experience Company, said.

At the same time, downtown Las Vegas wants to enhance its reputation as the place “adults go to play.” MIKE BIALEY
