On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin talks about the newest revelations from Wikileaks that the country having all of its phone calls recorded by the NSA, that was previously redacted by The Intercept, is Afghanistan. Abby then applauds Uruguay’s President, Jose Mujica, for his decision to give up his presidential mansion to 100 Syrian refugee children, accept Guantanamo Bay detainees into the country and reject the war on drugs.
Abby then interviews Eugene Puryear, Organizer with the ANSWER Coalition, about the Boko Haram terrorist attacks and kidnappings of over 200 girls in Nigeria and the wisdom of sending in a US military force to track down the missing girls. Abby then calls on her viewers to take part in the March Against Monsanto, a worldwide event in which activists take to the streets to voice their concerns over GMO foods and the lack of transparency when it comes to our food. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with RT Political Commentator, Sam Sacks, about the House of Representative’s decision to strip out an amendment to the Defense budget that would have repealed the Authorization for Use of Military Force, which is the justification for nearly all the actions taken during the War on Terror.
