The Alyona Show: Dow goes down
On May 6, the Dow, came crashing down. In the largest drop in any single day, the stock market experienced a nearly 1,000 point freefall. Some would like to blame it on a minor spelling error, with a Citigroup trader mistyping billion instead of million. But the truth is, everyone is looking towards Greece. Alyona talks about the situation with RT Correspondent Lauren Lyster in New York and Reason Magazine's Anthony Randazzo.
Then, according to the LA Times, the CIA has received secret permission to attack a wider range of targets, including suspected militants whose names are not known, as part of a dramatic expansion of its campaign of drone strikes in Pakistan's border region. So what ever happened to using intelligence?
And finally, a SWAT team in Missouri carried out a raid looking for a "large amount of marijuana." After shooting Jonathan Witworth's his two dogs and killing one, all they found was a pipe, a grinder, and a "small amount" of weed. Unfortunately, there are as many as one hundred of these terrifying paramilitary raids carried out every single day in the U.S. Alyona and Sgt. James Hanson discuss.
