Scott Horton Interviews John V. Walsh
John V. Walsh, frequent contributor to Counterpunch.org, discusses the Left’s outrage about Sarah Palin’s virtual cross hairs (in the wake of the Tucson shootings) and near-silence about the real cross hairs of helicopter gunships and Predator drones killing civilians overseas; the American reverence of government officials, especially in death, and the popular belief in the righteousness of state-sanctioned murder; the spectacle of Obama being cheered like a rock star while delivering his eulogy in Tucson; and the collection of antiwar writing from across the political spectrum in the book ComeHomeAmerica.
