    On today's episode of Loud & Clear, Brian Becker is joined by political cartoonist and writer Ted Rall to preview tonight's presidential debate.

    With election day now just under three weeks away, what will the candidates say about immigration, foreign policy, and the economy? Will tonight’s debate be another empty media circus for the two most unpopular candidates in a very long time?

    The United States bombed Houthi positions after accusing the movement, which controls Yemen’s capital, of firing missiles at an American warship off the coast of the country — but now the Pentagon has admitted that they are not sure that any missiles were ever launched by the Houthis. Mark Sleboda, international security and affairs analyst, discusses what may have taken place.

    While the Syrian government is preparing to liberate eastern Aleppo from the last of the terrorist forces in the city such as al-Nusra, Hillary Clinton has said removing Bashar al-Assad from power is her number one priority in Syria, and over the weekend a “no bombing zone” was discussed in London. What would this entail and who would stand to benefit? Kevork Almassian, a Syrian journalist originally from Aleppo, joins Becker.
