Race in America: The President’s Changing Strategy

Hosted by

A White House delegation attended today’s funeral for Michael Brown, in Ferguson, Missouri.  He was the unarmed, young black man killed 2 weeks ago by a white policeman.  Did the President miss an opportunity by not going himself? Also, just days after the public execution of US reporter James Foley by the Islamic State, another American hostage is released by a different jihadist group without any ransom.  We hear how it happened.And, at least ten tanks, two armored vehicles and two trucks flying the flag of pro-Russian rebels opened a new front in Ukraine today—crossing the border from Russia into a previously peaceful part of Eastern Ukraine.
