Scott Horton Interviews Gareth Porter
This recording is from the KPFK 90.7 FM Los Angeles broadcast of April 15th.
In a partial reprisal of his recent Antiwar Radio interview, Gareth Porter discusses Pakistan’s condemnation of out-of-control US drone strikes and espionage in the wake of the Raymond Davis affair; the surprisingly expansive US spy network in Pakistan; targeted drone assassinations that serve little purpose in the “war on terror;” and how a military coup against Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki might help the Pentagon stay in Iraq past the 2011 deadline – unless Moqtada al-Sadr has something to say about it.
