Graphic cigarette warnings, Libyan funding and draw down in Afghanistan
New cigarette warnings
Three Talk Radio News Service correspondents discussed a wide array of issues from Washington DC for News Talk Online on the Paltalk News Network.
Lovisa Frost, who attended the White House briefing, reports that new, extremely graphic warnings are being affixed to cigarette packages and billboards to try to scare underaged smokers specifically and all smokers in general from indulging in a habit that is costing the nation millions of dollars in healthcare.
Correspondent Ken Bazinet joined to talk about the congressional efforts to limit the presidential funding of the NATO operation in Libya – efforts that he believes will fail.
And bureau chief Ellen Ratner gave a preview of President Obama’s scheduled Thursday speech where he will announce the draw down of combat troops in Afghanistan.
