​Saudi Arabia flogs free speech, Nigeria’s corrupt legacy & CIA goes on trial

Abby Martin discusses the flogging of a Saudi Arabian blogger for insulting Islam and the State Department’s non-reaction to the event, plus the hypocritical arrest of a French comedian for his controversial social media comments in the wake of a mass demonstration in Paris defending free speech.

The host of RT UK’s Going Underground, Afshin Rattansi, then talks about PM David Cameron’s visit to the White House and a recent Op-Ed he penned with President Obama.

Plus: Wuyi Jacobs, of Afrobeat Radio, talks about the recent massacre of as many as 2,000 people in the town of Baga, Nigeria by Boko Haram militants; and David Swanson, of BeyondWar.com, discusses the trial of former CIA Agent Jeffrey Sterling and its relation to the Iran nuclear negotiations.
