Antiwar Radio: Marcy Wheeler

Marcy Wheeler, blogging as “emptywheel” at, discusses the trial of former CIA officer Jeffrey Sterling for allegedly spilling the beans on Operation “Merlin,” a foolhardy attempt to pass bogus nuclear weapons plans to Iran; the return of federal prosecutor William Welch, who managed to botch both the Ted Stevens and Thomas Drake trials; and the government’s pursuit of NY Times journalist James Risen for his investigative work on warrantless wiretapping and the Bush administration’s push for war with Iran.
