We’ll speak to our special correspondent Ahmed Habib about the current situation inside US-occupied Iraq, as the theater of elections and vote recounts distract the mainstream media from the ongoing destruction of Iraqi lives across the country; and Peter Phillips and Mickey Huff of Project Censored talk about the truth emergency in the US and run down several censored news stories you may have missed this year if you just watched the evening news or read the New York Times.
