Trump Watch with Paul DeRienzo live Thursdays at 6:30 PM on WBAI-99.5 FM in New York City, listener sponsored, non-commercial radio, also on the world-wide web at wbai.org. Fighting against the consolidation of a fascist regime in the United States with truth - the only antidote to fake news in the Trump era.
Three years ago on August 3, 2014, a frightened escape by 200,000 Yazidi people from an onslaught by ISIS troops led to a desolate mountain named Sinjar. Kurdish forces heled most escape, although 50,000 were taken by ISIS, many heading to sexual slavery and death. We are joined from Irbil, Iraq by reporter Stephen Taylor, an international journalist who lives in Iraq and has reported from many places in the region. He joins us on WBAI.
