    On today's episode of Loud & Clear, Brian Becker is joined by Syrian journalist Kevork Almassian to discuss the ceasefire in Syria, which the Syrian government yesterday declared to be over.

    Did the rebel groups use the last few days to regroup and prepare to launch a new offensive? The Russian military says that only the government forces have actually been observing the truce, and the United States killed scores of Syrian government soldiers in an airstrike it claims was a mistake.

    Ahmad Khan Rahami, the main suspect in the string of bombings in New York and New Jersey, has been captured following a shootout with police. Politicians immediately jumped in following the blasts to make them a campaign issue. What are the consequences when politics and a massive manhunt collide? Becker speaks with John Kiriakou, a former CIA analyst and case officer, and Dr. Douglas Weeks, he is a counter-terrorism expert and Visiting Research Fellow at the London Metropolitan University

    Donald Trump appears to be surging with new polls suggesting a shift towards him in the electoral map. With Trump and Clinton are tied across many battleground states, could Donald Trump actually become the president? Anoa Changa, host of the weekly progressive talk show The Way with Anoa and contributor to the Benjamin Dixon Show, joins Becker to talk about the Trump surge.
