David McBride is a former military lawyer in the Royal Australia Regiment and Australia Special Forces. He completed two tours in Afghanistan and submitted an internal complaint against what he witnessed in the war. He immediately faced scrutiny and harassment.
A few years later, David found journalists with the Australia Broadcasting Corporation who were willing to listen to him. They were interested in classified documents that showed the reality of Australia’s involvement in the war.
What David had to reveal was published as “The Afghan Files.” It was a “quite a big story in Australia,” according to him. But the Australia government responded by raiding the ABC and targeting David with a prosecution for an espionage offense.
In this episode from the “Unauthorized Disclosure” podcast, which Kevin Gosztola typically co-hosts with Rania Khalek, Kevin speaks with David about his deployments to Afghanistan.

Sanctions Kill: The Campaign To Free Venezuelan Diplomat Alex Saab
Sara Flounders, a longtime activist and co-director of the International Action Center, joins the "Unauthorized Disclosure" weekly podcast to discuss the campaign to free Venezuelan diplomat Alex Saab.
He was jailed in Cabo Verde while trying to obtain food and gasoline for Venezuelans from Iran. He faces extradition as part of lawfare by the U.S. to enforce crippling sanctions against Venezuela.
Sara recently visited Cabo Verde with a delegation. She describes solidarity efforts that are underway, as well as some of the wider organizing she has done to show sanctions are not a peaceful alternative to war.
She also outlines how the US is able to count on Cabo Verde to act as a client state and submit to their demands to violate human rights and international law.

Advises listeners to disregard Public Health and medical advice
Rania and Kevin have no training or experience in healthcare. That’s obvious, as they had a comedian come on to tell everybody to disregard social distancing guidelines related to COVID-19. This joker hosted an event at a comedy club during the pandemic, so Rania and Kevin thought he was really neat.
Almost 400,000 Americans have died from COVID in less than one year. We have a vaccine that hasn’t been distributed properly to protect the greater public yet. This disease is very real. It’s not a joke. Yet these jokers want you to believe it’s some kind of conspiracy or paranoid fantasy.
I think Kevin and Rania should call every family member of the nearly half million dead in this country to apologize for encouraging people to spread this disease. And the nurses and doctors who have had to risk their lives going to work for the past year only to listen to this kind of stuff from people who have no idea what they are talking about.
Rania, Kevin, if this is a conspiracy or paranoid delusion, why is every country on the planet dealing with this? Why are the hospital beds and graveyards full? Why does every peer reviewed medical journal in every language fill its pages with advice to not gather in crowds- like that that Colorado nightclub? Do you think the entire global medical community is having the same delusion?
Or, maybe, you’re just wrong.
Stop telling people to endanger their lives and the lives of others.
