Mumia Abu Jamal: NSA Anyway…

GUEST: Mumia Abu Jamal, political prisoner and award winning journalist.

Abu Jamal has been struggling with medical problems for the past several weeks, in and out of the hospital. He is dealing with a number of severe chronic conditions including open wounds across his body, extreme fatigue. Additionally he has lost an extraordinary amount of weight – 80lbs. He is back in the prison system now, relatively stabilized, but not out of danger. Prison radio tells us that “he is weak, in a wheelchair, and his legs are wrapped in bandages. Mumia’s independent doctors …have still not been allowed to examine him or directly manage his treatment. His condition remains serious, undiagnosed, and untreated.” Supporters have accused the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections of attempting to execute Mumia Abu Jamal through medical neglect.

Despite his medical condition, he filed this commentary about the recent political debate over the NSA and the Congressional fight to pass the USA Freedom Act.
