I documented personal history how US political “leadership” and corporate media allow a million children to die from preventable poverty each month. For Wall Street’s role in this child-slaughtering, UK Independent’s Grace Livingstone deftly explains (my emphasis):
Speculation by large investment banks is driving up food prices for the world's poorest people, tipping millions into hunger and poverty. Investment in food commodities by banks and hedge funds has risen from $65bn to $126bn (£41bn to £79bn) in the past five years, helping to push prices to 30-year highs and causing sharp price fluctuations that have little to do with the actual supply of food, says the United Nations' leading expert on food.

My first-hour guest will be John Perkins, author of the bestseller Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, and the new The Secret History of the American Empire. Perkins pulls back the curtain on the way the world is really run (by financiers, not politicians) through usury and black ops.
Second hour guest: Abid Ullah Jan of http://www.dictatorshipwatch.com/, author of six books and countless articles, whose analysis of empire complements Perkins.
John Perkins is on the record expressing doubts about the official story of 9/11--doubts that I hope he'll expand upon in this interview!
