Featured Guests:

  1. Robert Dreyfuss, a Nation magazine contributing editor, is an investigative journalist specializing in politics and national security. The author of, “Devil’s Game: How the United States Helped Unleash Fundamentalist Islam,” examines Israel’s disproportionate bombing of Palestinians in Gaza as Hamas fires rockets into Israel. He’ll assess the escalating Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the context of the recent kidnapping and brutal murder of 3 Israeli teenagers – and the retaliatory killing of a 16 year old Palestinian boy.
  2. Peter Kornbluh, Senior Analyst with the National Security Archive and author of “The Pinochet File: A Declassified Dossier on Atrocity and Accountability.” He’ll review the significance of a recent Chilean court ruling which determined that the U.S. government conspired to murder American citizens Charles Horman and Frank Teruggi in the days surrounding the Washington-supported 1973 military coup that overthrew the democratically elected government of Chile’s president Salvador Allende.
  3. Kevin Gosztola, a journalist who covers secrecy and national security issues, writes Firedoglake’s The Dissenter blog. He’ll discuss the significance of the most recent revelations from Edward Snowden/Glenn Greenwald on the warrantless surveillance and collection of personal information from tens of thousands of U.S. citizens, including several prominent Muslim American activists and attorneys.
  4. A representative of the Tar Sands Free Northeast Coalition will talk about the group’s protest action and people’s conference on Sunday, July 13th at the New England Governors and Eastern Canadian Premiers Conference at Bretton Woods, New Hampshire. The demonstration was organized to call attention to the future increased use of carbon-heavy tar sands fossil fuels in the northeast via a proposed new Portland, Maine to Montreal pipeline, and the related negative environmental consequences.
