She was the country's longest-reigning monarch, serving for 70 years and presiding over the end of the British Empire. Her death set off a period of national mourning in the U.K. and has thrown the future of the monarchy into doubt. "The monarchy really has come to represent deep and profound and grave inequality," says Cambridge scholar Priya Gopal, author of "Insurgent Empire: Anticolonial Resistance and British Dissent." We also speak with Harvard historian Maya Jasanoff, Novara Media editor Ash Sarkar and Pedro Welch, former chair of the Barbados Reparations Task Force, who says the British monarchy's brutal record in the Caribbean and other parts of the world must be addressed. "The enslavement of our ancestors has led to a legacy of deprivation, a legacy that still has to be sorted out," says Welch. Peeping Webcam? With NSA Help, British Spy Agency Intercepted Millions of Yahoo Chat Images tag:trueskool.com,2014-02-28:1464587:Video:319323 2014-02-28T23:54:21.063Z Staff Pick http://trueskool.com/profile/Ren <a href="http://trueskool.com/video/peeping-webcam-with-nsa-help-british-spy-agency-intercepted-milli"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/2177887899?profile=original&amp;width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>Published on Feb 28, 2014<br></br> <br></br> The latest top-secret documents leaked by Edward Snowden reveal the National Security Agency and its British counterpart, the the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) may have peered into the lives of millions of internet users who were not suspected of wrongdoing.

The surveillance program codenamed "Optic Nerve" compiled still images of Yahoo webcam chats in bulk and stored them in the GCHQ's databases with help from the NSA. In one six-month period in 2008 alone, the agency reportedly amassed webcam images from more than 1.8 million Yahoo user accounts worldwide. According to the documents, between 3 and 11 percent of the Yahoo webcam images contained what the GCHQ called "undesirable nudity." The program was reportedly also used for experiments in "automated facial recognition" as well as to monitor terrorism suspects. We speak with James Ball, one of the reporters who broke the story.

This comes as the British Parliament voted Thursday not to back international action against Syria following the Assad regime's alleged use of chemical weapons last week. This comes as a team of U.N. inspectors, who spent the week traveling to rebel-controlled areas in search of proof of a poison gas attack, is set to give its preliminary findings to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Saturday. As the United States continues to try to build an international coalition, we speak with Bassam Haddad, director of the Middle East Studies Program at George Mason University and co-founder of Jadaliyya.com. "The United States in Iraq has actually used nerve agents, mustard gas, and/or white phosphorus in Fallujah and beyond, left depleted uranium all over the country in Iraq, ruined and destroyed the lives of generations as a result, and now claims that it needs to do this to protect Syrian civilians -- which is exactly the opposite of what will happen in any invasion or any strike on Syria, which is not possible to happen in the surgical manner that is being discussed right now," Haddad says. "You have a regional environment that is also in many ways opposed to this, including of course the allies of Syria in the region, and we have a possibility of this becoming something much more than what many envisioned."<br /> <br /> See other recent reports about Syria on Democracy Now! at <a href="http://www.democracynow.org/topics/syria">http://www.democracynow.org/topics/syria</a>.<br /> <br /> Democracy Now!, is an independent global news hour that airs weekdays on 1,200+ TV and radio stations Monday through Friday.
