Russ Baker is an investigative reporter and the best-selling author of Family of Secrets: The Bush Dynasty, America's Invisible Government and the Secret History of the Last Fifty Years, which features numerous chapters containing original research on the assassination of John F. Kennedy, Watergate, and other improperly explained national traumas. He is the founder and editor-in-chief of the news site WhoWhatWhy, which frequently covers new developments on deep political events. He has been a Contributing Editor of the Columbia Journalism Review and he has written for The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, The Nation, The New York Times, The Washington Post an dozens of other domestic and foreign publications. We'll discuss the fiery ending of the journalist Michael Hastings. We proceed in the second hour discussing Syria and the striking similarities to how the situation in Libya went down. Russia has been instrumental in halting the plans of the west but how long can it hold? Later, we tie in the fate of Barrett Brown, Edward Snowden, NSA surveillance and the Saudi connection to the oil economy and geopolitical events. At the end of the hour, we talk about the upcoming 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination. Russ shares his research on who was part of it.
