  1. Aha! A different interpretation of the Iran "Boo! Qom!" situation, I see. Stuff for a future interview.

  2. Sounds like Lauria has become caught up in the hype about Iran's alleged nuclear chicanery. But that is too typical of journalists like him – to become caught up in the politics they cover within the corridors of power instead of remaining objective. Sorry Joe, but the US government's focusing on Iran's yet-to-be-discovered nuclear weapons program is a waste of time and a distraction from much more important issues.

  3. I'd like to know who his source is for the claim that Iran only announced the new facility because they knew the US was about to "bust" them over it, from all the reports i have read nobody has stated how Iran knew this, probably because it's not true.

  4. Big government sympathizer, that Mr. Lauria.

    Listening to interviews, it's amazing just how easy it is to spot collectivists.

    I would have liked to have heard some of the good things the U.N. has done for the world and the justification for that goodness.

    Tyrants, the whole bunch of 'em.

  5. I agree with Glenn. What was the purpose of this interview Scott? I didn't hear anything pro-peace, anti-war, anti-State, pro-market, or anything else worthwhile from Joe Lauria. He's a mouthpiece for the State/war-party from what I can tell. Don't shills for slavery and death masquerading as journalists get enough airtime on mainstream channels?
