    On today's episode of Loud & Clear, Brian Becker is joined by journalist and geopolitical analyst Pepe Escobar to discuss President Obama's final trip abroad.

    President Obama met with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and held a press conference where he talked about the future of U.S.-European relations and his advice to Donald Trump about foreign policy regarding Russia and others.
    NSA whistleblower William Binney joins Brian to discuss the resignation of James Clapper as Director of National Intelligence. Under Clapper's watch, a spying apparatus the likes of which the world has never seen was constructed.

    The House of Representatives has extended sanctions against Iran for another decade. It is expected that the Senate will also pass the bill and President Obama will sign it before leaving office. Are we on the brink of a renewed round of U.S. aggression against Iran? Phil Wilayto, author of the book “In Defense of Iran: Notes from a U.S. Peace Delegation's Journey Through the Islamic Republic,” discusses what the renewal of the sanctions means for Iran.
