'Left, Right & Center': Inauguration, CIA Leaks, and a New Cop at the SEC
Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists discuss whether President Obama’s inaugural speech means he’s becoming the liberal Ronald Reagan. They also consider whether the Pentagon’s lifting of the ban on women in combat is social progress or simply a military necessity.
The commentators ponder whether the nomination of “tough as nails” prosecutor Mary Jo White to head the Securities and Exchange Commission means more difficult days ahead for Wall Street or pandering to former clients.
And this week’s program, which features Daily Caller editor Jim Antle and host Matt Miller, also covers a CIA officer’s sentencing to 30 months in prison for leaking the name of an undercover colleague.
