"Here's the United States, the only 'friend' and ally that Israel has, and they go out of their way to embarass the United States. This has been particularly true under Netanyahu, at every opportunity. I think at some point you have to say enough is enough, and I think we've reached that point."

– Interview with Mel Goodman, former CIA analyst and director of the National Security Project at the Center for International Policy, on the recent breach in protocol between the Israeli government and the White House.

Netanyahu's Arrogant Obstruction Signals Need to Change U.S.-Israeli Relations

MP3 Interview with Mel Goodman, former CIA analyst and director of the National Security Project at the Center for International Policy, conducted by Scott Harris

Republican House Speaker John Boehner upped the ante in his party’s confrontation with the Obama administration over U.S. nuclear talks with Iran when he opted not to consult the White House or State Department about inviting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address a joint session of Congress about Iran on March 3. Netanyahu, who is campaigning for a fourth term in Israeli’s March 17 election, is expected to urge support in Congress for new sanctions against Iran, despite warnings that the measure would derail ongoing negotiations with Tehran over its nuclear program.  Story continues

Obama and West Remain Silent on Saudi Arabia’s Dismal Human Rights Record

MP3 Interview with Ali Al-Ahmed, director of the Institute for Gulf Affairs, conducted by Scott Harris

Saudi Arabia has been the focus of international news reports in recent weeks with the death of Saudi King Abdullah and the appointment of one of the late king's younger brothers, Crown Prince Salman, as his successor. The oil-rich kingdom has also come under scrutiny for its recent sentencing of a 31-year-old blogger, Raif Badawi, to a 10-year prison sentence and 1,000 lashes over a period of 20 weeks for the alleged crime of insulting Islam. Badawi was arrested for criticizing his nation’s clerics on his Free Saudi Liberals blog.  Story continues

New Report Documents 'The Increasingly Unequal States of America'

MP3 Interview with Mark Price, labor economist with the Keystone Research Center, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

wealthgap

There’s been a lot of talk recently by U.S. politicians, both Democrats and Republicans, about the growing gap between America’s super rich and everyone else. Now a new study again confirms what many economists and Occupy Wall Street activists have been saying for years, that incomes have become so lop-sided that in some states, all the income gains since the start of the economic recovery in 2009 have gone to the top one percent. That's why for many Americans it doesn't feel like a recovery at all.  Story continues
