"Well, this is the kind of rhetoric that ISIS would have written for these people, because it gives credibility to Islamic State propaganda which says that the West is conducting a religious war against the caliphate."

– Mel Goodman, former CIA analyst, describing how Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz's and Donald Trump's talk of carpet-bombing, waterboarding and worse feeds ISIS' recruitment efforts as well as creating political and religious divisions in Europe and its allies

GOP Candidates Trump, Cruz Follow ISIS Script By Stoking Hate and Fear Against Muslims

MP3 Interview with Mel Goodman, former CIA analyst and senior fellow at the Center for International Policy, conducted by Scott Harris

gop

After the latest ISIS terrorist attack that targeted the Brussels airport and a metro station on March 22 that killed 35 and wounded more than 300, Belgian authorities admitted their failure to detect and follow up on warning signs that an attack was imminent. Belgium is well known as an epicenter for European Islamist radicals. More Belgians have joined ISIS as a proportion of the population than have residents from any other Western nation. Many of the ISIS operatives who carried out the brutal Paris attacks in November 2015 that killed 130 were Belgian nationals or residents. The Brussels neighborhoods of Molenbeek and Schaerbeek, populated by many émigrés from the Middle East, has been used as a base of operations by ISIS jihadists.  Story continues

Lead Poisoning Crisis in Flint Provokes Call for Federal Investment in Nation’s Public Water Infrastructure

MP3 Interview with Mary Grant, director of the Food and Water Watch Public Water for All campaign, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

water

The lead poisoning water crisis continues in Flint, Michigan, the result of a state decision to change the source of drinking water for the low-income and largely African American population from a reliable clean source to what in reality was a contaminated one, in an effort to save money. On March 17, when Michigan’s Republican Gov. Rick Snyder and EPA administrator Gina McCarthy testified before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, legislators asked both officials to resign. But the likelihood of accountability for this series of tragic errors, seems remote.  Story continues

After Thaw in U.S. Relations, Cubans Pursue Slow but Steady Pace of Change

MP3 Interview with Peter Kornbluh, senior analyst with the National Security Archive, conducted by Scott Harris

cuba

President Barack Obama’s March 20 trip to Cuba was a bold affirmation of his administration’s historic decision to move towards normalizing relations with the island nation’s communist government. Obama’s journey to Cuba, accompanied by his wife and two children, was the first by an American president in 88 years. The initiative for warmer relations between Havana and Washington, begun in December 2014, ended a 54-year period of hostility, which was an important chapter in the Cold War era.  Story continues
