The Alyona Show looks at the flood of homeland security funding to states and cities for the purchase of military grade surveillance and crowd control weapons in the post-9/11 age, and the deployment of these tools to interfere with social and political protest from New York City to Anaheim, CA. 

Glenn Greenwald and Jane Hamsher are guests. They also discuss the Bradley Manning case and the intimidation of whistleblowers.
