Manufactured Terror, Regime Change in N. Korea & MLK’s Forgotten Speech

On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin, discusses the newest FBI foiled bomb plot and the questions about entrapment allegations that the bureau has yet to answer. Abby then discusses the decision by the US to deploy at least 500 troops to countries surrounding Syria to train “moderate” Syrian rebels despite this policy being a dangerous failure in the past. Abby then speaks with investigative journalist and author, Gareth Porter, about the latest updates regarding the Iranian nuclear negotiations and how the past use of cyber warfare might impact the talks. Abby then talks to journalist, Tim Shorrock, about the latest news that the NSA hacked into North Korean computers in 2010, and the impact this revelation will have on global cyber security. BTS wraps up the show with a look at Martin Luther King Jr.’s hidden legacy on the holiday named after the revolutionary leader.

A good overall episode covering some of the most important current issues.
