Syrian Journalist: 'Is Obama Committed to Syria Ceasefire Plan?'

Syrian Journalist: "Impossible To Know If Obama Committed To Syria Cease Fire Plan"
On today's episode of Loud & Clear, host Brian Becker is joined from Latakia, Syria by independent journalist Steven Sahiounie to discuss the two-week ceasefire that is set to begin in Syria tomorrow.

Sahiounie gives an eye witness account of life in Syria over five years of war, how Syrian identity has changed as sectarianism emerged, the role of Turkey in stealing resources from the country, and why many Syrians do not trust the intentions of the U.S as the ceasefire is set to start.

In the second segment, activist and author Eugene Puryear explains the role of the corporate media in generating support for Hillary Clinton within the African-American community despite the record of the Bill Clinton administration in expanding a system of mass incarceration, dismantling of social welfare programs, and establishing discriminatory laws and policing strategies that disproportionately affected black Americans.

Finally, Iran goes to the polls today. What's at stake? Iranian independent commentator Wahid Azal joins Becker to talk about the elections taking place in today. Why is the western mainstream media paying such close attention to these elections? Is there another attempt to destabilize and overthrow the Iranian government underway?
