- Was Evidence Faked to Blame Russia for Downing of MH17 Civilian Plane?
On today’s episode of Loud & Clear, Brian Becker is joined by former CIA analyst Ray McGovern to react to the Dutch-led investigation into the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 releasing its first report yesterday.
The Joint Investigative Team’s conclusion was that a BUK missile delivered from Russia was responsible for the downing of the plane, but should this now be taken as established fact? Or has the Joint Investigative Team been allowed to fabricate evidence?
The Senate has overwhelmingly overturned President Obama’s veto on a bill that would allow U.S. citizens to sue foreign governments for terrorism on U.S. soil. What are the ramifications if 9/11 survivors and family members are soon able to sue Saudi Arabia? Becker is joined by Sam Sacks, co-host of Radio Sputnik’s Unanimous Dissent.
Fifteen years have passed since 25,000 people joined the first major anti-war demonstration of the post-9/11 period in Washington, DC just weeks after the attacks. The protest was the first action coordinated by the newly established ANSWER Coalition and inaugurated a new, 21st century anti-war movement. Sarah Sloan of the ANSWER Coalition joins Becker to discuss the importance of the protest and the establishment of the organization.
