The Washington Note just arrived in London a short while ago and will be connecting with Al Jazeera London Bureau Chief and senior terrorism investigative correspondent Yosri Fouda tonight.
Fouda and his colleague and producer Giles Trendle are screening a new film they produced (46 minutes long) titled “The Triangle of Anger” about America’s ‘extraordinary rendition’ practices since September 11, 2001.
This film was first broadcast on Al-Jazeera in January 2006 as an episode of the satellite channel’s flagship current affairs documentary program, “Top Secret”. It has now been translated into English and will be screened at the Frontline Club tonight at 7:30 p.m.
I will be there at about 6:45 p.m., perhaps earlier and am happy to have drinks with any TWN readers who may wander by. Frontline also has a restaurant, open to the public, on the ground floor.
Just go in to the restaurant and ask for the screening, which is on the second floor, and which I think may run five pounds if you are not a member of the club (perhaps if you are very nice and say you are a friend of Yosri’s, they’ll cut a deal. . .but can’t promise that).
The good news is that there is a bar up on the screening floor as well.
More later. Just truth in advertising, TWN‘s proprieter appears as one of the commentators in this “Triangle of Anger” show.
