Plus, as the world is haunted by the images of a 3-year old Syrian boy’s body we’ll turn today to acclaimed journalist Robert Fisk, Middle East correspondent for the Independent. And, Joe Plumer, an attorney for the White Earth band of Ojibwe, joins us to discuss how members of his community are challenging an 1855 US treaty.
