    This week’s show begins by commenting on how Congress overrode Obama’s veto of the JASTA bill which will allow Americans to sue Saudi Arabia for some of its nationals’ complicity in the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

    After that we talk about the bombshell report which proves that the Pentagon paid over half a billion dollars for the production of fake terrorist propaganda. Next up on our countdown is the $100 million drone base that the US is secretly constructing in northern Niger and the reason why the Pentagon wants such a huge facility in the proverbial ‘middle of nowhere’. The following issue that we tackle is how the Colombian people surprised the entire world by narrowly voting against the peace treaty with FARC and throwing the years-long reconciliation process into jeopardy. And finally, our main story of the week deals with the simmering tensions between the US and Russia over Syria, and the polar opposite course of action that each side seems committed to in the near future.
