​World’s first trillionaire, India’s GMO suicide epidemic, Lewinsky redux overshadows drug war

On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin remarks on an announcement by financial forecasters who predict the world will see its first trillionaire within the next 25 years. Abby then speaks with Jeffrey Smith, author of “Genetic Roulette,” discussing a suicide epidemic in India linked to the proliferation of GMO seeds that are displacing farmers across the country. Abby then calls out the corporate media for the tabloid coverage of Monica Lewinsky, and highlights a report by the London School of Economics which outlines a clear roadmap for a sustainable end to the global War on Drugs that puts human interests first. Abby then goes over the case of Naji Mansour, a Muslim American man whose life was turned upside down after being coerced by an FBI agent to become an informant for the agency. BTS wraps up the show calling out the massive waste by the US military in Afghanistan, speaking with RT Correspondent Meghan Lopez about why there’s never been a full-scale audit of the Pentagon.
