We will speak live with Mr. Goodman about the report released yesterday on the Benghazi attack in Libya that killed four Americans. He commented yesterday on that report by saying “This Benghazi report is of a continuing media circus that the Republicans have created. But we still have much to learn about the CIA’s role in Benghazi; the interest of Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi; and the communications between the White House and the CIA in trying to explain the events of that terrible night.” Mr. Goodman revealed before that the US consulate in Benghazi was a diplomatic cover for an intelligence operation.

We will also talk about American militarism around the world; US presidential candidates and their stance towards military spending and defense budget; US involvements in other countries; and more.

The secrecy that surrounded the Iran-Contra affair probably saved the Reagan presidency over the short term, but greater transparency would have prevented Iran-Contra from ever getting off the ground in the first place.
