‘Left, Right & Center’: Obama Ends the War on Terror

Posted on May 24, 2013
kcrwcom

Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists discuss Barack Obama’s announcement of the end of the decade-and-counting-long war on terror while Gitmo remains open for business. Is the Obama administration all over the map when it comes to terror?

The White House also continues to take criticism for Eric Holder’s dubious handling of the First Amendment and monitoring journalists. Is Obama really “worse than Nixon”?

The Boy Scouts voted this week to admit gay youths but homosexual adult leaders are still forbidden. Are the Scouts going far enough to reflect the large cultural shift in opinions about gay rights? Is Apple the good guy or bad guy when it comes to dodging corporate taxes? The IRS scandal stands in contrast to legislators’ glowing criticism of Apple. Can Anthony Weiner make a comeback in the race for New York mayor? And a staggeringly low percentage of Angelenos chose Eric Garcetti to be their next mayor.

Joining Scheer and host Matt Miller are Mitt Romney strategist Stuart Stevens, who gives the perspective from the right, and Thomson Reuters Managing Director Chrystia Freeland, who gives the view from the center.
