Part 2

Then on the eve of the breakthrough talks between Iran and the U.S., we look into efforts by Senator Lieberman to undercut the Obama Administration’s diplomatic track with Iran and force his hand to take military action.  Kate Gould, the Legislative Associate for Middle East Policy for the Friends Committee on National Legislation, a Quaker public interest lobby on Capitol Hill, joins us to discuss the Lieberman/Graham/McCain push for another war just as diplomacy gets underway.

Part 3

Then finally we discuss the unfolding scandals inside the highest ranks of the ruling Communist Party in China. Gordon Chang, the author “The Coming Collapse of China” joins us to investigate the politics, criminality and national security issues surrounding the murder of a British businessman, allegedly on the orders of the wife of a rising star in the politburo whose right-hand henchman, a provincial Police Chief, had tried to defect to the U.S. consulate where he dropped off a cache of secret documents before being handed back to Chinese authorities.
