“Troika of Tyranny” is new “Axis of Evil” & CIA leaker tortured in prison

Anya Parampil reveals the new propaganda strategy the US is using to delegitimize socialist governments in Latin America. She reports on John Bolton’s speech delivered in Miami on Thursday, coining “Troika of Tyranny” as the new “Axis of Evil.” Anya discusses Bolton’s emphasis on U.S. animosity for the democratically elected governments of Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua. She then talks to Netfa Freeman, from the International Committee for Peace, Justice and Dignity to the Peoples, about why the U.S. targets these countries and how the recent election of Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil may enable the Trump administration to target them further. Later, RT correspondent Rachel Blevins reports on the torture of Joshua Adam Schulte, a former CIA coder who was imprisoned and tortured for leaking files to WikiLeaks, which made up the organization’s infamous “Vault 7” leaks detailing the CIA’s hacking tools for conducting foreign surveillance. Later Anya Parampil speaks with Ray McGovern, former CIA Officer about the CIA’s history of torture and how it is more common than most people believe it to be.
