After a week that saw a militarized police crackdown and the imposition of a nighttime curfew (for people protesting the shooting of Michael Brown), Amnesty International USA has taken an “unprecedented” step by sending a 13-person delegation to monitor the developments in Ferguson, Missouri. It is the first time Amnesty organization has deployed observers inside the United States. Amy Goodman speaks to Steven Hawkins, executive director of Amnesty International USA.

Was the Zapruder Film altered by the CIA in the days after the JFK assassination to hide evidence of a conspiracy? Legendary CIA photo interpreter Dino Brugioni thinks it was. In this film, Doug Horne interviews Brugioni, who speaks for the first time about his examination of the film at the CIA’s National Photographic Interpretation Center on the Saturday evening after the assassination. As researcher Doug Horne discovers, Brugioni was not aware of a second examination of the film at NPIC the following evening by a completely different team and believes the Zapruder Film in the archives today is not the film he saw the day after the assassination.

As the Full moon waxes and the world continues to wage wars on many levels, I pray that we can align our thoughts. I pray that the lightning quick flash of Aquarius penetrates the deepest levels of our minds and sparks us to the truth: that we are all connected. We are all related. And not just us humans, but animals, plants, elements. We all were born of stars and fire and water and ice and air. The same little cell that crawled out of the oceans millions of years ago created everything that exists. Every moment that goes by that we remain ignorant to this fact, we suffer. We suffer ourselves and we inflict suffering. Sometimes a little and sometimes a lot. We have all changed shape since that cell, but looking different does not mean we are separate. Aquarius recognizes this. We all have our own minds and lives BUT there is something that links us eternally.

Sixty-nine years ago at 8:15 a.m., the United States dropped an atomic bomb on the Japanese city of Hiroshima. Destruction from the bomb was massive — shock waves, radiation and heat rays took the lives of some 140,000 people — nearly half of the town’s population. Three days later, the United States dropped a second atomic bomb on the Japanese Nagasaki killing another 74,000. At Hiroshima’s Peace Memorial Park and next to e A-bomb Dome (one of the few structures that withstood the blast) , blast survivor Koji Hosokawa, who was 17 years old at the time, talks with Amy Goodman of Democracy Now! His 13-year-old sister, Yoko, died in the bombing.
Amy Goodman (Democracy Now!): “This is almost 69 years later. It was the United States that dropped the atomic bomb. How do you feel when Americans come here (to Hiroshima)?”
Koji Hosokawa: “I hate war rather than the people of the United States. I hate war. War makes everyone crazy.”
