Turkey Downs Russian Plane

Russian JetTurkey shot down a Russian warplane it claims had crossed its border, the first time a NATO country has downed a Russian plane since the beginning of the cold war. Now Vladamir Putin’s lashing out, and Turkey has called a NATO meeting: we talk about what’s behind the conflict, and where it’s headed.  Plus: interfaith supporters of the Black Friday 14 are targeting Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley’s office — we speak to one of the organizers.
