Texas Defies the World Court and Its Own Former Governor

Hosted by

The State of Texas is defying President Bush by refusing to halt tonight's scheduled execution of an admitted killer. Is Texas subject to international law? Could American citizens face retaliation overseas? What does the case have to do with illegal immigration and opposition to the death penalty? Also, oil prices fall as high energy costs curb consumer demand, and a “mother lode of gorillas” has been found in the Republic of Congo.
