Obama = Romney, UN General Assembly distraction?
Abby Martin breaks the set about conscientious objectors by highlighting the case of Kimberly Rivera, and calls out Philippe Reines for admonishing CNN for attempting to question more. She then interviews Phyllis Bennis, Director of the New Internationalism Project at IPS, about Israel’s influence on US foreign policy and the issue of Palestinian statehood. BTS also talks to RT Correspondent Anastasia Churkina about the UN General Assembly and the slew of Islamophobic posters popping up in New York City’s subway system. Abby wraps up the show by examining the similarities between the Democratic and Republican US presidential candidates.
