Robert Gates: From CIA to Pentagon? Who is the Nominee to Head the Defense Department?

On the next Subversity show, slated for Monday 13 June, 2006 on KUCI, we chat with national security analyst and author John Prados about former CIA director Robert Gates, who is George Bush's nominee to succeed Donald Rumsfeld as Defense Secretary. We will discuss what has Gates done in the past and how quickly will he withraw U.S. troops from Iraq? Gates, after all, was deputy CIA director when the U.S. sent Donald Rumsfeld to meet with Saddam Hussein and shake his hands, sealing the U.S. effort to arm Iraq. Gates was also implicated, but never charged, in the Iran-Contra scandal.

The Religious Right

On our November 6 2006 show, Subversity took a look at the Religious Right with Chip Berlet, senior analyst with Political Research Associates, which has just released a report, Running Against Sodom and Osama: The Christian Right, Values Voters, and the Culture Wars in 2006, that Berlet co-authored.

We also aired a clip from Bob Avakian, who leads the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA, warning not to put faith in the Democrats. And we also gave our subversive take on Tuesday's elections, especially one proposition, 83, that is more a reflection of hysteria over sex crimes than anything that would solve anything. We addressed the pros and cons.
