Gareth Porter, independent historian and journalist for IPS News, discusses Joe Biden’s acceptance of the mainstream (and false) Iraq War narrative, how the U.S. and Iran are essentially partners-in-meddling in Iraqi politics, dispelling the main tenets of surge “success” and why Iraq is shaping up to be another “forgotten war” in the Korean model.

  3. Thanks Scott. Thanks Gareth. It's still possible to hear the truth.

  4. ikeep hearing that a lot of our personal in IRAQ was killed by IRAQUI men which is so much a lie because BLACKWATER was supplying most of the fire power.When the military got to IRAQ and they knew nothing about IED,S plus they had all their AMMO blown up before the troop,s started getting blownup. also when the company name blackwater was questioning the people while they were in the green zone the so call protectors were planting bombs in the car,s and sending them out into the market place to be blownup. where do you people think got their heads? And i woul like to know what movie did G.W. play in and who wrote this scrip for him this must have been a movie beccause no one could rally be that dumb.And hope that the extras which is the AMERICAN people over look his incomptance.

  5. When do we begin refering to our country as an evil nation? What does it take?

  6. The U.S. Government is broken. It's lawless at home and abroad. The American sheeple had better wise up. . . .

  7. Horton's introduction of Gareth Porter is correct. Porter doesn't regurgitate Establishment bullshit–he debunks it.

    Always good to hear from him.

  8. treason for personal gain = sociopathy

    take this surge myth, add a lil DU and you got an escalating tragedy, timeless blowback only the Mossad could have manufactured with willing traitors

  9. Well, "All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. 'There is no one who is good, not even one,' " St. Paul said.

  10. Reason for the War: the Rapture, the Second Coming. Also gladden the racists and sadists in our elite.

  11. Pentagon, Congress CIA are all zionist controlled. America is under foreign power.

  12. Life sucks without Anti-War Radio. :( (((( Scott, come back soon and bring Scott Ritter with you!

  13. This is one of the best interviews because of the content that Gareth Porter provides and the passionate side comments by Horton. Too many of my friends blindly repeat "The Surge Worked", substituting their own critical thinking for sound bites, which is the whole point of the old media these days.

    Life does suck without Anti-War Radio.
