Why The US Lets Israel Get Away With Murder
Fifty one years ago, the Israeli military attacked a US Naval vessel and, mysteriously, the President prevented the US military from protecting the people on that ship and the investigation was a sham. We speak with a survivor of that attack, Joe Meadors, about the efforts to expose what happened and why he currently risks his life to save Palestinians.
We also cover recent news, including the cancellation of the military parade, the new Iran Action Group announced on the anniversary of the 1953 coup, next steps for North Korea, pipeline successes and an update on wealth inequality.
