Tonight we talk about her signature songs “Fever” and “Is That All There Is?” as well as her film work in “Pete Kelly’s Blues” and her lawsuit against Disney. Peggy Lee was a one of a kind singer that has inspired many other artists over the years, tune in and find out why.

Shane Harris: @ War: The Rise of the Military-Internet Complex

Wednesday, December 3, 2014 - 4:00pm

Cyberspace has become a battlefield and the next major international conflict may very well be fought over the Internet. Tonight on Inquiry we talk with journalist SHANE HARRIS about his latest book @ WAR: THE RISE OF THE MILITARY-INTERNET COMPLEX. This frightening and revealing account traces the development of the NSA’s cadre of elite hackers and how they use “zero day” programs to attack critical enemy targets like nuclear facilities. Of course the United States government and major corporations have themselves been hacked by cyber warriors from China and Russia.
