EPISODE BREAKDOWN: On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin discusses revelations by The Intercept that a secretive terrorist organization known as The Khorasan Group, that was said to pose an imminent threat to the United States by government officials, was largely fabricated. Abby then goes over the pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong, highlighting the long history of tension between mainland China and the autonomous region and how China is responding to mass protests in the streets. Abby then speaks with Erin Ade, host of Boom Bust, about a stunning series of recordings released by former New York Federal Reserve employee, Carmen Segarra, showing the collusion between the regulatory body and Goldman Sachs. Abby then talks about a $500 million settlement between the government and Navajo nation over destruction of tribal land due to uranium mining and how this amount will do nothing to alleviate the pain and suffering caused by this industry. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with producer, Manuel Rapalo, about some of the most overlooked speeches during the UN General Assembly from Evo Morales’ comments on the Security Council to Dilma Rousseff’s speech on the NSA.
