3/19 The Invasion of Iraq Ten Years Later & Becky Bond Credo Activism

March 19, 2013

On today’s Show, Sam remembered the invasion of Iraq, the disastrous consequences of the war and why Janeane Garofalo was vital voice of dissent before the invasion of Iraq and why she needs far more credit today for her willingness to speak out.

Becky Bond, the Vice President of Credo Action reflected on her activism against the invasion of Iraq, the crucial role that activism will play in protecting Social Security and Medicare, how Credo helped win an important special election in Illinois and can the Keystone Pipeline be stopped?

On The Better Half: Steve Kornacki takes over for Chris Hayes on UP, the media madness that led to the invasion of Iraq and your calls and IMs.

And keep the conversation going on the morning thread!
