‘Left, Right & Center’: Drone Strikes, David Petraeus, Clinton Trouble
Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists discuss whether the unintended killing of two hostages in a U.S. drone strike was a mistake inherent to war. Also, former general and CIA director David Petraeus is sentenced to two years’ probation and fined $100,000 for sharing classified information, and the Clinton Foundation is under fire for its financial dealings.
Scheer is joined by Josh Barro of The New York Times moderating from the center, Rich Lowry of the National Review on the right, and Juliette Kayyem, a former assistant secretary with the Department of Homeland Security, as a special guest.
