Stanley Sporkin, former general council of the CIA under Iran-Contra mastermind William Casey, is none other than the Ombudsman for BP; we’ll speak with Catherine Austin Fitts who has conducted an in-depth investigation into Sporkin; also, we’ll speak to Richard Steiner, a former university of Alaska professor who played a key role in the aftermath of the Exxon-Valdez oil spill, and who has just returned from working on the cleanup in the Gulf; we’ll have a special report; also, a report on the cultural devastation that BP’s oil spill has unleashed on Gulf communities; and a report back from a poor peoples march from New Orleans to Detroit.
