Here’s what’s coming up Sunday on Full Measure.
I speak to former Obama Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, David Shedd, who explains why it’s so tough for our intel agencies to determine whether Russia or anyone else tried to influence our elections. He says even if we trace a cyberattack to a certain country, it doesn’t necessarily mean it started there, since signals can be bounced off servers in different countries to mask the origin. It’s also difficult to know whether a cyber attacker was working with the foreign government or is a lone wolf.
We’ll also talk to one of the most effective Inspectors General in government, John Sopko. Sopko was appointed by President Obama to police the $115 billion tax dollars spent in Afghanistan to rebuild the country. As he’s found rampant waste, fraud and abuse, he’s developed some powerful enemies among forces who are apparently trying to controversialize and silence him.
And we’ll dissect the Zika hype. With no epidemic in the U.S. after all, Congress still recently committed $1.1 billion tax dollars to the cause. Lisa Fletcher goes to Miami to measure the unintended consequences of the Zika hype on the business community and the environment.
Stories nobody else will have…each week on Full Measure! Thanks for helping us grow!
