On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin talks to columnist and Middle East affairs analyst Hafed al Ghwell about post-revolution Libya, the mounting violence that experts say could sink the country into chaos, and the underlying struggles that prevent progress. Abby then goes over the timeline of events that resulted in Julian Assange spending one year holed-up inside the Ecuadorean Embassy in London, and the international pressures that transformed the little-known whistleblower into Public Enemy Number One. Abby then talks to political commentator Sam Sacks about the Obama administration’s decision to arm the Syrian rebels, and looks at the various factions that collectively make up ‘the rebels.’ BTS wraps up the show by highlighting the late Michael Hastings as the day’s hero, citing his work as an honest journalist and courageous storyteller who pulled no punches.
