Sleeping through a revolution, US undermines Mideast peace, A truth-telling politician

On this episode of Breaking the Set, guest host Manuel Rapalo highlights the story of Rip Van Winkle, the man who slept through the American Revolution, as a cautionary tale to those who turn a blind eye to the events reshaping modern society. Manny then talks to Rashid Khalidi, Columbia University professor and author of the book ‘Brokers of Deceit,’ about how the US has undermined peace and stability in the Middle East. BTS wraps up the show with a look back at Abby Martin’s interview with former Congressman Dennis Kucinich, one of the few truth-telling politicians.
