Mestrovic is Professor of Sociology at Texas A&M University and author of “The Good Soldier on Trial: A Sociological Study of Midconduct by the US Military Pertaining to Operation Iron Triangle, Iraq.”

Fran Hunsaker’s son William was one of the four, now serving an 18-year prison sentence his lawyers are appealing for clemency.

America’s “rules of engagement (ROE)” will be discussed and why low-ranking service men are convicted for obeying them.

Sunday, June 20 at noon US Central time: Ellen Brown

Brown is a civil litigation attorney, author, and frequent writer on financial issues. A new edition of her latest book, “Web of Debt,” is now out – a vitally important analysis of the private banking cartel Federal Reserve, how it usurped money creation power, and how we can take it back.

The Daily Bell “Compendium of Free-Market Thought” says “in modern economic thought (there are now) Keynsians, Austrians and Brownians.”

Brown’s latest writing will be discussed.
