‘Left, Right & Center’: What Now in Iraq and Syria, House GOP, Scott Walker
Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists discuss whether it’s “Onward to the 7th Century” in Iraq, the Republican attempt to elect a new leader after Eric Cantor’s shocking loss and the accusation that Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker was involved in a criminal scheme to stave off recall efforts in 2012.
Joining Scheer on this week’s panel are Matt Miller, moderating from the center, Byron York of the Washington Examiner on the right, and Robin Wright, fellow at the U.S. Institute of Peace and the Woodrow Wilson International Center.
