Part 1

We begin with the broadside leveled against the CIA and the White House by outgoing Senator Mark Udall, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee who fought for the release of the torture report, who said in a dramatic floor speech in the Senate that “it’s bad enough to not prosecute these (CIA) officials, but to reward and promote them is incomprehensible, the president needs to purge his administration”. Veteran CIA officer Robert Baer joins us to discuss why the internal CIA report on torture which came to the same conclusions as the Senate report, and was the reason why the CIA spied on the Senate to see who leaked the report to them, will never see the light of day.

Part 2

Then finally we speak with Robert McChesney, the Gutgsell Endowed Professor in the Department of Communication at the University of Illinois and author of the new book “Blowing the Roof Off the Twenty-First Century: Media, Politics, and the Struggle for Post-Capitalist Democracy.” We will discuss how we can overcome the downward spiral created by the tyranny of wealth and privilege in America and establish a truly democratic and sustainable society.
