"What we're seeing now in Iraq and Syria, as well as other parts of the Middle East, is an inevitable response to the (U.S.) invasion of 2003."

– Peter Van Buren, author, 24-year veteran of the U.S. State Department

Current Sunni vs. Shiite Religious War in Iraq Tragic Legacy of 2003 U.S. Invasion

MP3 Interview with Peter Van Buren, author, 24-year veteran of the U.S. State Department, conducted by Scott Harris

iraq

The current military offensive and successful advance by Sunni insurgents of ISIS, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, capturing major cities across northern and central Iraq, has stunned governments across the globe, and called into question the viability of the Iraqi state. ISIS fighters, a breakaway faction of al Qaeda in Iraq, have captured key Iraqi cities including: Mosul, Tikrit, Ramadi, Falluja and Tal Afar, facing little or no resistance from the Iraqi Army. In their wake, the militants have reportedly carried out mass executions of hundreds or possibly more than a thousand soldiers and civilians.  Story continues

Women Rally for Prison and Sentencing Reform June 21st

MP3 Interview with Andrea James, co-founder and director of Families for Justice as Healing, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

prison

On June 21, thousands of people are expected at a rally in Washington, D.C. that will highlight the situation of women in prison and call for an end to the war on drugs. The rally called, "Free Her," points to the faster rate of incarceration of women over men, although men still make up the vast majority of the 2.5 million Americans in prison. Most of those women were prosecuted for non-violent drug offenses, taking them away from their children, or in some cases, forcing women to give birth while in prison. For other women, decades-long prison sentences mean they can never have children. More women than men have suffered either physical or sexual abuse before being jailed, and they suffer higher rates of mental illness while incarcerated, where very few receive adequate mental health care.  Story continues

Right-Wing Anti-Government Violence, a Growing Threat to Democracy

MP3 Interview with Rachel Tabachnick, fellow at Political Research Associates, conducted by Scott Harris

rightwing

On June 8, the nation witnessed yet another violent incident inspired by anti-government and right-wing hate ideology, this time in Las Vegas, Nevada. Jerad Miller and his wife, Amanda, originally from Lafayette, Indiana, shot and killed two police officers at a pizzeria while they were eating lunch. The Millers draped the Gadsden flag, reading “Don’t Tread on Me," adopted by the Tea Party movement, over one of the bodies, placed a Nazi swastika on top of the flag and pinned a note to the other officer’s body reading, “This is the start of the revolution.” They went on to kill an armed shopper at a nearby Walmart store who had tried to stop the couple by drawing his own gun. Jerad was later killed by police, after which his wife committed suicide using her own gun.  Story continues
