Join us Friday at 11pm EST as we speak to Philippine radio host and columnist Jarius Bondoc about how the Philippines fits into America's Asia Pivot. Mr. Bondoc has written and spoken out against the Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement with the United States, which was signed during President Obama's Asia tour, and which will give U.S. forces nearly unlimited access to Philippine bases for future military operations. Mr. Bondoc says that the government of President Aquino violated the constitution by circumventing Senate approval of the deal.
