This week on CounterSpin: President Obama attended the North American leaders’ summit in Toluca, Mexico, on February 19, to discuss NAFTA and the sprawling Trans Pacific Partnership commercial treaty that the White House doesn’t want you to know about. We’ll talk with Lori Wallach of Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch about Toluca, NAFTA and the TPP.
Also this week: We read a lot about Iran’s nuclear program in the newspaper. But what if most of what we read just isn’t true? That’s what Gareth Porter’s new book Manufactured Crisis says. He’ll join us to talk about it.
