Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Thursday) | Listen to this entire show:

Good morning, welcome to Radioactivity. I’m Rob Lorei. Our guest today is Morton Halperin who will be speaking this coming Monday in Sarasota as part of Forum Truth.

He served in the Johnson, Nixon and Clinton administrations in a number of roles. Perhaps, most famously, during the Nixon administration he was a staff person on the National Security Council appointed by Henry Kissinger. When the New York Times reported in 1969 that the US was secretly bombing Cambodia - a neutral country in the Vietnam War - the White House and the FBI wanted to find out who leaked the story to the Times — and Halperin’s phone at the national Security Council was wire tapped.

We'll talk first (because he's a foreign policy expert) about the situation in Egypt. later we'll discuss Wikileaks, Julian Assange, Bradley Manning and government secrecy.
