Interview with Anna Berlinrut, organizer with Military Families Speak Out, conducted by Scott Harris
In a nationally televised address on June 22, President Obama announced he would withdraw 10,000 U.S. troops from Afghanistan by the end of 2011. That represents one-third of the 33,000 additional soldiers he ordered deployed to Afghanistan in December 2009. Obama also told the nation that the remaining 23,000 surge-troops would return to the U.S. by September 2012, with the remaining 70,000 to be withdrawn in 2014. Story continues
Interview with Nancy Keenan, president of NARAL-Pro Choice America, conducted by Melinda Tuhus
Almost all of the nation’s state legislatures this year were forced to focus on large budget deficits and figuring out ways to deal with them, including deep cuts to government services and programs. But, just like in the U.S. House of Representatives, many legislatures controlled by Republicans made time to debate bills that restrict women's access to abortion. Hundreds of measures were introduced around the country, and a significant number were passed. Some require mandatory ultra-sounds; others ban abortions after 20 weeks with no exceptions for the health of the mother or rape or incest; others place restrictions on abortion coverage in the federal government's new health insurance exchanges.

Interview with Michael Mariotte, executive director of the Nuclear Information and Resource Service, conducted by Scott Harris
As corporate media coverage of the ongoing disaster at the four failed nuclear reactors in Fukushima, Japan has faded, a new concern has emerged in the U.S. as flood waters threaten two nuclear plants on the Missouri River. Both Nebraska’s Fort Calhoun nuclear plant and the Cooper Nuclear Station sit on the shores of the Missouri River, which is now facing record flood levels. The Fort Calhoun plant has been shut down for refueling since April, and operators there have installed berms, floodgates and piled up sandbags to help protect the facility. When floods caused the local electricity grid to fail, emergency generators had to be used to supply power to keep the reactor cool and prevent a meltdown, such as occurred in Fukushima. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has assured the public that the plant is equipped to safely survive the flood. Story continues
