Full Program



Part 1

We begin with an analysis of what the real questions should be in regards to what happened in Benghazi on September 11 last year, as opposed to the trumped up partisan circus that has been largely generated by Fox News since then. A former CIA veteran, Melvin Goodman, the author of “National Insecurity: The Cost of American Militarism” joins us to discuss the facts behind the fiction as outlined in his article at Counterpunch “The Real Benghazi Scandal”. melvin goodman


Part 2

Then we examine the issues raised about women’s health and breast cancer treatment that have followed actress Angelina Jolie’s New York Times op-ed where she revealed she undertook a prophylactic double mastectomy to avoid a genetic likelihood she would contract the disease that kills close to 40,000 women in America each year. Dr. Susan Wood a former FDA Commissioner for Women’s Health and Executive Director of the Jacobs Institute of Women’s Health at George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services joins us to discuss the connection between breast cancer surgery and breast implants.

Then finally we discuss the radical shift underway as the U.S. changes from the world’s leading importer of oil to a net exporter, overtaking Russia as the world’s biggest gas producer by 2015. One of the most quoted analysts on energy issues, Fadel Gheit, Senior Vice President for Oil and Gas Research at Oppenheimer and Company joins us to explain the reshaping of the world’s energy markets and the shift in the global power balance outlined in a new report by the International Energy Agency.
