Full Program



Part 1

We begin with some foreign policy issues that have been overshadowed by the economic hostage crisis on Capitol Hill. Ambassador Marc Ginsberg joins us to talk about Iran’s role in shoring up the murderous Assad clan in Syria, with both money and Iranian Revolutionary Guards thugs who have honed their skills beating, jailing and murdering Iranian protesters during the Green revolution.


Part 2

We speak with an Israeli Air Force veteran, Brigadier General Nehemiah Dagan, who is currently touring the U.S. sponsored by J Street, the dovish alternative to AIPAC, promoting a two-state solution. We discuss the absence of peace, and even a peace process, between the Israelis and Palestinians and what can be done to bring the parties back to the table.


Part 3

Given the high stakes in the current economic hostage crisis brought on by those who created the deficit that all except the wealthiest Americans are expected to pay down at the cost of killing economic recovery, we get an update on the latest insanity on Capitol Hill. Thomas Ferguson, professor of Political Science at the University of Massachusetts and a member of the advisory board of the Institute For New Economic Thinking, joins us.
