Last time on Truthdig Radio in association with KPFK: unconventional recruiting in the military, balancing free speech with cultural sensitivity in the Middle East, how to survive a plague and Robert Scheer on the freeloaders whose votes Mitt Romney is apparently not expecting.
Listen to the whole show:
Matthew Kennard is the author of “Irregular Army: How the US Military Recruited Neo-Nazis, Gang Members, and Criminals to Fight the War on Terror.”
Nadine Strossen was head of the ACLU for 18 years and is currently a professor of law at New York Law School.
The new documentary “How to Survive a Plague” uses archival footage to tell the story of activists fighting for survival in a country that seemed ready to simply let gay Americans die.
Robert Scheer discusses the secret footage that has been plaguing the Romney-Ryan campaign.
