    On today's episode of Loud & Clear, Brian Becker is joined by Rick Sterling of the Syria Solidarity Movement.

    Donald Trump and the CIA have reportedly decided to end the covert arming of Syrian rebels. But were these forces ever really ‘moderate’ and does this really signal a major policy change of the US government in Syria?

    Today marks six months since Donald Trump became the 45th President of the United States. We’ll look at how his first half year in office contrasts with his campaign promises, as well as freewheeling and strange interview with the NY Times this week. Anoa Changa, host of The Way With Anoa, and Brandon Sutton, host of The Discourse, join Brian.

    US lawmakers have introduced legislation to make participation of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement in solidarity with Palestine a crime punishable by up to 20 years in prison. This is the latest in a long running campaign of repression against pro-Palestine activities in the United States. Miko Peled, author of the upcoming book 'Injustice: The Story of the Holy Land Foundation Five' joins the show
