    On today's episode of Loud & Clear, Brian Becker is joined by NSA whistleblower William Binney to discuss if the NSA was actually hacked and what kind of tools may have been acquired.

    A hacking group calling itself the Shadow Brokers says it has infiltrated the NSA's Equation Group and is now looking to sell off “cyber weapons” used by the agency, asking for a payment of $1 billion in bitcoin. Who could be behind the hack and what does it mean for the future of the NSA and cyber warfare?

    Former President Bill Clinton turns 70 today. Becker is joined by Kevin Akin of the Peace & Freedom Party and activist Jane Cutter to discuss Bill's real legacy: war against Yugoslavia, the end of welfare at home, millions of jobs sent overseas, prisons overflowing in record numbers with impoverished young people, and the destruction of the liberal wing of the Democratic Party.

    Joe Biden visited Serbia this week where he was greeted by crowds of protesters. Now activists will erect a monument to the victims of the NATO bombing of Novi Sad. Becker is joined by human rights attorney Christopher Black to talk about the legacy of the U.S. bombing of Yugoslavia and what comes next in the U.S.-Serbia relationship.
