How Kerry sold out, California bans NDAA, lavish bribes for Congress, financing Syria war
Abby Martin recalls how over the last 40 years Secretary of State John Kerry has changed from a passionate anti-war advocate to the drum major for a war against Syria. Journalist Chris Hedges updates on the lawsuit against the federal government regarding the National Defense Authorization Act’s indefinite detention clause, remarking on the California Senate’s rejection of the measure. Then a look at the scope of lavish expenditures by lobbyists to sway congressional opinion despite laws that ban this practice. Finally, an interview with Max Keiser, host of RT’s ‘Keiser Report’ about everything from why a supposedly broke country always has money for war, and the often illogical outcomes of important events, citing Halliburton stocks rising following revelations of the company’s criminality.
