On today’s program I begin with contrasting the response to Iran’s shooting down the US drone with that following the shooting down by the USS Vincennes of Iran Flight 655, a passenger plane in 1988, killing all of its 290 passengers for which the US paid reparations but never apologized, but awarded its captain with the Legion of Merit.

In between, I refer to today’s guest, Grant Smith, who will be interviewed about liberal Democrat hero stifling investigation of neocon involvement in Niger yellowcake uranium fraud used to justify Iraq war.

I then argue that the US has been waging war on the people of Iran since the CIA engineered coup in 1953 when Mohammad Mosadeggh nationalized its oil, setting in motion a financial embargo and regime change plan similar to Trump’s today, culminating in Reagan arranging to keep US embassy hostages in Tehran until after he is sworn into office.

After mentioning the US media blackout on reports of Israel and Israel Lobby’s involvement in regime change agenda, I cite interview of Joe Lieberman on Israeli Army Radio in which he criticizes Trump for not bombing Iran while advocating other targets.

I conclude with report on Joe Biden having been the champion of the banks and credit card companies when he was a senator from Delaware that has more chartered corporations than people and point out that he clearly appears to be the DNC choice for president.
