NASA’s Wakeup Call, Cuban Embargo Madness & Another Bailout for Big Banks?
In this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin, discusses the vote by 188 members of the UN General Assembly to lift the US embargo on Cuba, with the US and Israel being the only ones to uphold it. Abby talks about the explosion of an unmanned rocket destined for the International Space Station (ISS) and how this should serve as a sign of why we need to be investing more in NASA and space exploration. Abby then speaks with Redacted Tonight Correspondent, Sam Sacks, about the insurance giant, AIG’s, lawsuit against the government over the conditions of their bailout money and whether the company actually has a legitimate claim in court. BTS wraps up the show with an exclusive interview with former Minnesota Governor, Jesse Ventura, covering everything from the myth of voter fraud to endless war in the Middle East.
