Gerald Horne, professor of history at the University of Houston, author, historian, and researcher, joins us to discuss Latin America.

Laith Marouf, broadcaster and journalist based in Beirut, Lebanon, joins us to discuss Iraq. There is discord between the message that came from the meeting between President Biden and the Iraqi Prime Minister, as well as the Prime Minister's comments to various media outlets. We are told that the two leaders agreed on keeping US troops in Iraq, but the Prime Minister has told other outlets that the troops are not needed and should leave.
Tunde Osazua, who is on the Africa Team of the Black Alliance for Peace (BAP) and is the coordinator of BAP’s The US Out of Africa Network, joins us to discuss Africa.

Robert Fantina, journalist and Palestine activist, joins us to discuss Israel. Pro-Israel organization Zionist.org will be working with PayPal to monitor financial transactions in what they claim is a move to stop hate and antisemitism. Also, Patrick Lawrence argues that the Israeli pushback against Ben and Jerry's ice cream refusing to sell in the occupied territories is evidence that the BDS movement is increasing in its power.

We discuss the need for the investigation but the reality that we can no longer get an unbiased investigation.
Jim Kavanaugh, writer at thepolemicist.net and CounterPunch and the author of "Over the Rainbow: Paths of Resistance after George Floyd," joins us to discuss Big Tech.

Snowden goes on to say that “The phone in your hand exists in a state of perpetual insecurity, open to infection by anyone willing to put money in the hand of this new Insecurity Industry.”
