Up Front for Friday, May 17 - Barbara Lee on Afghanistan

US Representative Barbara Lee, discussing this afternoon's vote on amendments to the 2013 Defense Budget Bill--and her push to pull the US military out of Afghanistan by cutting the purse strings. Eleven years ago, she was the sole vote against the invasion of Afghanistan; today, she won 113 votes, including 12 Republicans. Plus: Sonali Kolhatkar interviews organizers preparing to protest this weekend's meetings of the G8 at Camp David and NATO in Washington, and we'll look at the Facebook IPO with Cyrus Farivar and Lenny Goldberg -- how the company makes money, and how tech companies in general avoid taxes.
