Part 1

We first go to London and speak with an expert on British extradition law, David Bentley, an associate fellow of International Law at Chatham House. We discuss extradition as it applies to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange who has just been granted political asylum by Ecuador and is holed up in the Ecuadorean embassy with the UK police outside waiting to arrest him for extradition to Sweden. david

Part  2

Then we look into the hysteria over terrorism that was at fever pitch before the London Olympic Games, leading presidential candidate Mitt Romney to criticize alleged deficiencies in security. Dr John Meuller, who has an article in the latest issue of International Security, “The Terrorism Delusion: America’s Overwrought Response to September 11”, joins us. He is quoted in articles in Foreign Policy and at Salon.com by Glenn Greenwald, debunking sham “terrorist experts” masquerading as objective scholars, shilling for the Terrorism Industrial Complex.

Part 3

Then finally we speak with the inventor of a revolutionary light bulb that uses minimal energy and will last for generations. Daniel Lang joins us. He just unveiled BriteSol Inc’s breakthrough technology at Senator Harry Reid’s National Clean Energy Summit in Las Vegas with former president Bill Clinton and Interior Secretary Ken Salazar. We discuss how his invention, which will be given way for free to developing countries, is expected to save energy and reverse global warming.
