“Jihadi John” Identified, the Changing Politics of Pot, and Net Neutrality

Hosted by

We start today with the news that the ISIS fighter known as “Jihadi John” has been identified as a British national named Mohammed Emwazi. What do we know about him? Also, why are so many Westerners getting radicalized by ISIS? Next, recreational pot is now legal in Alaska and Washington, D.C., even though it’s still illegal under federal law. We hear different perspectives on the legal and political conundrums that’s causing. Then, a conversation with the filmmakers behind the new documentary The Hunting Ground, about college campus sexual assault. And finally, we tackle net neutrality in our weekly Internet roundup.

Investigators believe that the masked killer known as "Jihadi John", who fronted Islamic State beheading videos, is Emwazi, two U.S. government sources said on Thursday. The British government and police refused to confirm or deny his identity, which was first revealed by the Washington Post, saying it was an ongoing security investigation.
