Robert Parry comments on Matthew Hoh’s resignation and criticism of US Afghanistan policy; attorney Michael Risher of the ACLU talks about DNA profiling, and PBC pays tribute to the late Norton Buffalo. Parry says the US has given al Qaeda more than they wished for, and talks about Obama’s decision on troop additions. We also talk about Daniel Ellsberg and the new documentary, The Most Dangerous Man in America. And Parry takes a swipe at the mainstream media for declaring the “public option” dead, prematurely. Risher tells how California’s Prop 69 requires police to take DNA samples from felony suspects, even those who are innocent or not charged, and those samples stay in the DNA crime database. And Norton Buffalo, the harmonica genius who died on October 30, is warmly remembered by Peter B.
