    On today’s episode of Loud & Clear, host Brian Becker discusses the arrival of Turkish President Erdogan in the United States today for a five day visit and the decision of President Obama not to meet with him.

    Joining Becker to analyze the state of US-Turkey relations is Kemal Okuyan of Turkey’s SoL newspaper and Kani Xulan of the American Kurdish Information Network.

    The Libertarian Party’s presidential debate is scheduled for tonight and will be broadcast nationally for the first time after years of the debate being sidelined by the mainstream media. Why are third party candidates excluded from the televised debates almost all news coverage? Daniel McAdams of the Ron Paul Institute For Peace & Prosperity joins Becker to discuss these issues.

    Vietnam War whitewash? Vietnam War commemorations take place in the United States today. Four years ago, it was decided that veterans would commemorate the 50th anniversary for the next 13 years. Is there a campaign to rewrite the history of the Vietnam War by the US government? Becker is joined by historian and professor Peter Kuznick to discuss the reasons behind the US intervention in Vietnam and the political motives of mainstream politicians to re-write history.
