    On today's episode of Loud & Clear, host Brian Becker discusses the verdict that is expected today in the tribunal of former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic.

    Becker is joined by human rights lawyer Christopher Black and author Richard Becker, who take a look at the role of the tribunal that was set up by the UN, who benefited from the breakup of Yugoslavia, and why NATO leaders are not facing war crimes charges.

    A team from RT Documentary gained exclusive access to the Syrian town of al-Shadadi just after its liberation from so-called Islamic State. They talked to people about their life under Daesh. They discovered not only a devastated town, but documents pointing ISIL's oil trade and business dealings. We’ll speak to one of the journalists who was there about just what these astonishing documents show.

    Yesterday was the deadline set by the Colombian government and the FARC to sign a peace deal, but with issues lingering the deal has still not been reached. John Kerry held unprecedented meetings with both FARC and the Colombian government in Havana this week. Could peace still be on the horizon or is Colombia about to plunge into more civil war? James Jordan, national co-coordinator of the Alliance for Global Justice, joins Becker to discuss these issues.
