Part 1

We begin with a U.S. Army veteran who served three tours in Afghanistan and just handed back his medals in protest at the NATO summit in Chicago. Jacob George joins us to explain why he handed back his medals and how he feels about the blood and treasure the U.S. has invested in a country that NATO is anxious to leave.

Part 2

Then we look into the impasse between NATO and Pakistan over opening the supply routes into Afghanistan where the Pakistanis are gouging NATO, demanding a raise from $250 per vehicle to $5,000, and the President is refusing to apologize to the Pakistanis because that would be an election-year gift to Mitt Romney who has accused Obama of having a foreign policy of apologizing.  Dr. Marvin Weinbaum, the former Afghanistan and Pakistan Analyst at the State Department’s Bureau of Intelligence and Research joins us.

Part 3

Then finally we speak with the son of a former head of the CIA William Colby, who opened up to Congress and spilled the "family jewels" that led to the Church Committee reforms that created the House and Senate Intelligence Oversight Committees. Documentary film maker Carl Colby, who recently made “The Man Nobody Knew: In Search of My Father, CIA Spymaster William Colby” joins us to discuss how the post 9/11 so-called reforms are working and the on-going military domination of the CIA and American intelligence.
