US hostage to Israel? Al Gore: Grade A hypocrite, dawning of the drones
Abby Martin talks to Mark Bruzonsky, publisher of MiddleEast.org, about the power and influence of the Israeli Lobby over the US government. Abby then highlights Adam Harvey, a New York artist who created a clothing line that can make you practically invisible to the thermal cameras of surveillance drones, and calls out former US Vice-President Al Gore for his hypocritical stance on a clean energy future while becoming rich off fear-mongering and oil money. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with Amie Stepanovich, legal counsel at the Electronic Privacy Information Center, about the rise of surveillance drones in the US, the capabilities of these robots, and the implications they have on the privacy of Americans.
