Investigative reporter Marcy Wheeler and political & social commentator Gaius Publius, offer a counter point to the Sunday.

Gaius and Marcy address the question of who actually runs things in the United States.  Elected officials, like the president and Dianne Feinstein  have disavowed knowledge of who the US intelligence services is spying upon. The heads of intelligene operations tell bald-faced lies to Congressional oversight committees, and not only retain their jobs, but continue to be  treated by the Beltway media as authoritative sources.Who gives them their orders? 


Then they discuss the most pressing national security issue facing the US, the existential threat of climate change.


And lessons in how not to govern from Japan and Fukushima
