THE SUNDAY WIRE broadcasts LIVE connecting North America and Europe this week, as host Patrick Henningsen covers the top stories in the US and internationally. In the first hour, we’ll hear about Patrick’s journey last week to Iran for the international Palestinian Conference, as he knocks down the litany of American stereotypes about that part of the world. At the quarter hour mark we’ll breakdown the current American hysteria over Russia with special guest, Mark Hackard, editor of from Espionage History Archive, and also Soul of the East. We’ll also look at Trump’s latest wiretapping blow-out, as well as John McCain and Lindsey Graham’s ‘Townhall’ circus last week. In the second hour, we’ll talk to author and historian Dr Can Erimtan to discuss Turkey’s radical shifting political situation and its government’s trend towards Islamization and what it could mean for bigger Middle East and geopolitical picture. In the third hour, we connect with 21WIRE Associate Editor Vanessa Beeley to talk about her recent live talk on Syria in London and what its like to have your event gatecrashed by al Qaeda, and also discuss different clashes with ISIS – both in Mosul, Iraq, and in the ancient city of Palmyra, Syria.
