    On today's episode of Loud & Clear, host Brian Becker is joined from Berlin by journalist William Whiteman to discuss Turkey's decision to recall its ambassador after Germany’s Parliament voted to recognize the Armenian Genocide of 1915.

    Turkish President Erdogan has said the vote will have serious consequences for relations with Germany. Will this resolution derail the EU-Turkey refugee deal?

    Foreign ministers meet in Paris for talks aimed to resuming the Middle East peace talks between the Palestinians and Israelis. But is this about peace or a fig-leaf for the status quo of Palestinian displacement? Becker is joined by peace activist and author Miko Peled and independent political analyst Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich.

    President Obama addressed the graduating class of the Air Force Academy yesterday. Now in his final year in office, what is the true legacy of Obama’s military and foreign policy 8 years after he campaigned as an anti-war candidate? Political analyst and author Eugene Puryear joins Becker.
