A weekly attempt at opening eyes, and trying to shed some light on what’s really going on in the world. All done by ripping apart the media madness that masquerades as news. All with a health dose of paranoia.
Hosted this week by Gareth Davies, Ben Emlyn-Jones, Joe Dunn and Reeves Cooke
John Feffer, director of Foreign Policy in Focus, discusses how “the chain of events set into motion by the U.S. invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq” are creating a new Nakba in the Middle East as massive refugee population transfers reshape the region.
Martha Mundy, a professor of anthropology at the London School of Economics, discusses why the West is so silent about the savage war in Yemen, and how Saudi Arabia is avoiding a UN investigation into human rights violations for its part in the war.
James Bamford, author of several books on the NSA, discusses how authorized NSA eavesdropping on Greece’s Vodafone telecom, supposedly to prevent terrorism during the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, morphed into a massive spying operation that targeted top Greek government officials for 10 years afterward, and may have cost a Greek telecom employee his life.
Eric Margolis, author of American Raj: Liberation or Domination, discusses the “inevitable” and “perfectly predictable” US blundering in Syria, and how Russia is taking action to support the Assad government.
