October 19, 2009 – Hour 1

Anthony McCarthy co-hosts with Marc today, and Cornel West joins us to discuss his new memoir, Brother West: Living and Loving Out Loud.

Then, with a decision of how many more troops the US will send to Afghanistan pending, we take a look at US foreign policy there.  Our guest is Phyllis Bennis, who is working on a book about the war in Afghanistan.  She’s also the author of Ending the Iraq War and Understanding the US-Iran Crisis, as well as the Director of the New Internationalism Project at the Institute for Policy Studies.
