  1. Why is this broadcast being cut off after four (4) minutes, when it´s suppose to continue to 22:50 minutes? Please fix and rebroadcast it, as the subject is fascinating.

  2. According to former Trident missile engineer Bob Pentagon aims to achieve a disarming and unanswerable first-strike capability. According to Bob Aldridge the US Navy can track and destroy all enemy submarines simultaneously. Please see the article by Keir Lieber and Daryl Press, “The Rise of US Nuclear Primacy” in the 2006 March/April issue of Foreign Affairs. With Minuteman-3s and Trident-2 D5s linked to NAVSTAR a CEP of 30-40 metres can be obtained. A First-Strike Capability won´t be complete without the missiles in Poland to shoot down any surviving Russian missiles. Even if it´s only for blackmail, the Russians may have no choice but implementing Launch On Warning.

  3. Rosen leading the pounding of Charles Freeman demonstrated once again the power of the I lobby. When a man who has been indicted on espionage charges can lead the charge against an outstanding individual for an Obama post proves once again that the I lobby is and has been out of control.

    If you punish me for spying ill just explain to everyone all the illegal information I have obtained and I’ll ruin you too.

    WHY was AIPAC spying? And what were they looking at? They were look at Iraq and Iran’s nuclear capacities. Why? Because they needed to know what the US knew and did NOT know about it so that the Israelis would better know how to lie about both and make cases for war.

  5. Obama, Holder, Leahy, Whitehouse, Pelosi (cough), etc etc. “no one is above the law” We shall see we shall see.

    Aipac has operated outside of the law for years. Will our government finally stand up against them or choke and fold once again.

    Aipac can undermine U.S. national security and get away with it
