    On today's episode of Loud & Clear, host Brian Becker talks with analyst Hafsa Kara Mustapha about the ongoing migrant crisis in Europe in which more than 110,000 refugees have arrived in Europe in just the first two months of 2016.

    Mustapha analyzes why Greece and Germany were excluded from an Austrian conference on migration yesterday, why racism and Islamophobia are on the rise throughout the continent, and what western powers could do in the Middle East to end the crisis.

    In the second segment, Becker speaks with NSA whistleblower William Binney about the refusal of Apple to comply with the FBI in unlocking an iPhone that belonged to one of the shooters in the San Bernardino massacre. Apple's CEO Tim Cook has said this would be a "backdoor to the iPhone". Does the government need to hack iPhones to fight terrorism? Or is this Big Brother America on the march again?

    Finally, activist Sarah Sloan of the ANSWER Coalition joins Becker to talk about why the United States rejected a proposal by North Korea to hold peace talks aimed at finally ending the Korean War. The proposal was turned down by the United States before the Pyongyang says it conducted a hydrogen bomb test on January 6.
