Iraqi forces backed by the US, begin the battle to retake the city of Mosul from the Islamic State. We’ll turn to Iraqi American peace activist and writer Dahlia Wasfi about the perils of the whole military exercise. And, a new survey of Muslim voters finds, unsurprisingly, that a minuscule number plan to vote for Donald Trump in November. My guest Hussam Ayloush of the Council on American Islamic Relations will explain Muslim voters’ main concerns and the role they could play on November 8. Plus, a disturbing report on fracking operations nationwide has found that far too many childcare centers, schools, hospitals, and nursing homes lie within a one-mile radius of fracking operations. We’ll speak with Elizabeth Ridlington, the author of the report, Dangerous and Close.
