British Prime Minister Tony Blair says his reports contain "Not one shred of evidence."

His undercover investigations of corruption within the Blair Government for Britain’s newspaper the Observer have made him "New Labour’s Public Enemy Number One".

He was named the BBC’s Guerilla News Networks Reporter of the Year for his work on the World Bank and the IMF.

He is investigative journalist Greg Palast.

Palast has uncovered scandal, fraud, corruption, and lies in the highest seats of power — from the White House to corporate America. Known in Britain as "the greatest investigative reporter of our time" (Tribune magazine), Palast has broken some of the biggest stories of the past decade, including:

o How Bush killed the FBI’s investigation of the financing of terrorist organizations by Saudi Arabia

o How the Bush family stole the election in Florida

o How Enron cheated, lied, and swindled its way into an energy monopoly

A brand new US edition of his best-selling book ??The Best Democracy Money Can Buy: The Truth about Globalization, Corporate Cons and High Finance Fraudsters was just released this month.

This Monday, Palast spoke at the Arab-American Cultural & Community Center in Houston, Texas, at a fundraiser for Pacifica’s Radio station, KPFT. Today, we’ll listen to excerpts of this speech. He talks about President Bush’s war on Iraq and the Bush family’s connections to corporate corruption and terrorism.
