- Peter Kornbluh, Senior Analyst with the National Security Archive and author of many books including his latest, co-written with William LeoGrande titled, “Back Channel to Cuba: The Hidden History of Negotiations between Washington and Havana.” Peter discusses President Obama’s historic trip to Cuba — and the White House decision to release classified documents on the dark U.S. relationship with the military dictatorship in Argentina.
- Mel Goodman, former CIA analyst who currently serves as a senior fellow at the Center for International Policy and an adjunct professor of government at Johns Hopkins University, examines the recent Brussels terrorist attacks and the response in Europe, as well as among politicians here in the U.S. in the context of the presidential election campaign, i.e. Ted Cruz’s proposal to patrol Muslim communities and Donald Trump’s advocating the use of torture.
- Kai Newkirk, Campaign Director with the group Democracy Spring, discusses preparations for their planned march from Philadelphia to Washington, D.C. April 2nd to April 11th — and the organizing being done for mass, non-violent civil disobedience at the U.S. Capitol in a protest targeting the corruption of big money in U.S. politics, and to demand free and fair elections in which every American has an equal voice.
- Stanley Heller, Executive Director of the Middle East Crisis Committee, talks about a planned protest outside the Yale Law School in New Haven, CT on Wednesday, March 30, where activists will be calling for an end to the U.S. supply of weapons to Saudi Arabia which has been carrying out deadly airstrikes in Yemen for the past year, as the oil rich monarchy attempts to destroy Houthi rebels in the country, that they assert are allied with Iran.
