FROM Steven Tilley
24,000 OSS Names Released Today President Franklin Roosevelt created the Office of Strategic Services to help combat the Axis powers during World War II. Harry Truman folded it into the CIA 60 years ago, but OSS officers were under instructions never to reveal what they did. Today, the National Archives is releasing 35,000 personnel files with 24,000 names—including Julia Child, Supreme Court Justice Arthur Goldberg and actor Sterling Hayden. Steven Tilley is Director of the Textual Archives Services Division of the Archives and Records Administration.
Terrorism and tweets, hate speech and murder Just days before an election, Britain is coping with a rash of deadly terrorism, and Prime Minister Theresa May is on the defensive. And again today, President Trump has tweeted criticism of the Mayor of London. Later, a double murder in Portland, Oregon has revealed the ugly past of a supposedly “progressive” city. One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?
What happens when America retreats from the world? Is President Trump taking his "America First" agenda to extremes, withdrawing the country from the international stage on trade and climate change, distancing America from its traditional allies across the Atlantic and even threatening to physically isolate the country through the building of a wall along its southern border? León Krauze guest hosts.
