    10/14/21 James Bradley on the Lies Americans Are Fed About China

    10/14/21 James Bradley on the Lies Americans Are Fed About China

    Scott is joined by author James Bradley. They discuss how foolish the Russiagate story was from the beginning before getting into China. Bradley explains how the entire American understanding of China is flawed. That the average American’s perception of China is the result of a mirage or fictional narrative we’ve been fed for many decades. Bradley argues that no rational look at China makes them out to be the threat they’re portrayed to be. And that, instead, the greatest threat comes from the American aggression that results from these false stories.

These units gained notoriety during the war and have been accused of numerous war crimes. Many refer to them as CIA Death Squads. Quilty explains how members of these Death Squads were given priority in the evacuation from Kabul and how they will be resettled in the United States.

    10/8/21 David Vine on the Absurd Number of American Bases Around the World

    10/8/21 David Vine on the Absurd Number of American Bases Around the World

    Scott talks with David Vine about a report he wrote recently for the Quincy Institute along with Patterson Deppen and Leah Bolger. The report makes the case for significantly reducing the number of American military bases abroad. Vine explains that there are currently around 750 active military bases outside of the U.S. And with far less diplomatic foreign infrastructure, America is projecting itself as a global empire that is militaristic above all. Scott and Vine also discuss some of the factors that keep these bases from closing.

    10/8/21 John Kiriakou on the Torture of Abu Zubaydah

    10/8/21 John Kiriakou on the Torture of Abu Zubaydah

    Scott interviews former CIA Officer John Kiriakou about a recent article he wrote. Kiriakou was personally involved in the 2002 capture of Abu Zubaydah in Pakistan. At the time, the CIA believed Zubaydah to be Al Qaeda’s third highest-ranking member. In truth, he was simply a logistician. Still, the Bush Administration used Zubaydah to make it look like dangerous terrorists were being captured and were handing over information thanks to “enhanced interrogation techniques.” Scott and Kiriakou observe that the Americans executed Japanese soldiers after WWII for using those very same techniques on American POWs. Kiriakou details the torture that Abu Zubaydah has been put through since his capture, all without a single charge being brought against him. Scott and Kiriakou also discuss other victims of the torture program, some of whom were killed without even being charged. Finally, Kiriakou explains the legal action Zubaydah is attempting to take against certain CIA contractors.

Koen Sw ,

Sure, read the NYT and WaPo but also listen to this!

Reading the NYT but US foreign policy not making sense to you? Listen to Scott and his excellent guests to get a different, well-informed perspective on what is really going on in Syria, Ukraine, Yemen, Russia etc etc and what drives the key players.

Scott knows what he is talking about and his choice of guests is superb.
