- Jennifer G. Loewenstein Associate director of the Middle East Studies Program at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and an authority on contemporary Middle East history, politics, culture, religion and U.S. foreign policy in the region. She talks about her views on the Obama administration’s decision to punish the Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad for its alleged use of chemical weapons near Damascus resulting in mass civilian casualties — as well as the possible consequences of any future U.S./European military attack in escalating the civil war or widening the conflict throughout the region.
- Bill Fletcher Jr., an editorial board member and columnist with the online publication BlackCommentator.com and the immediate past president of TransAfrica Forum. Fletcher, the former vice president for International Trade Union Development Programs at the AFL-CIO’s George Meany Center, discusses his recent article, “Claiming and Teaching the 1963 March on Washington,” as well as reviewing resurgent social justice movement stirrings within the labor and civil rights movement, such as the Dream Defender activists in Florida and the Moral Monday weekly protests in North Carolina battling “stand your ground” gun laws and voter suppression legislation.
- Francis Boyle, is a professor of international law at the University of Illinois College of Law and author of a dozen books including, “Biowarfare and Terrorism,” and “Destroying World Order: U.S. Imperialism in the Middle East Before and After September 11th.” He examines the veracity of the Obama administration’s contention that the Syrian government’s alleged use of chemical weapons against its own people justifies an American military attack — and the basis in international law for any future U.S. cruise missile or airstrikes inside Syrian territory.
- Steven Jonas is a professor of Preventive Medicine at Stony Brook University, a Fellow of the New York Academy of Sciences and author of over 30 books. Jonas, a Senior Editor with the Greanville Post.com, columnist with BuzzFlash.com and Truthout.org, discusses his new “futuristic novel,” titled, “The 15% Solution: How the Republican Religious Right took Control of the U.S. 1981-2022.”
