Today, we’re talking with Allan Lichtman, Professor of History, about his latest book, co-authored with Professor Richard Breitman, called “FDR and the Jews,” a topic which generates spirited debate, even today. The issue of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's response to the Nazi persecution and slaughter of Jews remains controversial and important. Professor Lichtman explains that while FDR did not do everything possible for the Jews, he was far better for the Jews than his political opposition at home, or any other world leader of his time. You can find, "FDR and the Jews," on Amazon.
Tonight on Political Analysis, Sandy LeonVest presents Web of Lies: Iraq Ten Years Later -- a Political Analysis special on the tenth anniversary of the US-led invasion of Iraq ...
Ten years after the US-led invasion and near-total destruction of Iraq, Sandy LeonVest challenges the mythology of the US (or anyone else) having "won" that war, along with the cultural pathology that allowed -- and continues to allow -- the aberration we call "war" to continue. Using audio clips from both the pre-Iraq war buildup and the post-war devastation, Sandy examines the web of lies woven and spun by the GW Bush administration and its corporate media allies that led to the near-total destruction of a once-civilized and culturally advanced nation, and left hundreds of thousands of other lives -- including US veterans and their families -- in ruins. Audio highlights include excerpts from Arundhati Roy, David Swanson and Greg Palast, along with other key players in the Web of Lies known today as the Iraq War.
