Scott Horton Interviews Matthew Rothschild
Matthew Rothschild, editor of The Progressive magazine, discusses his article “Stop the Bombing of Libya,” the 11,500 NATO sorties already launched in the name of enforcing a “no-fly zone” and “protecting civilians,” the real US agenda in Libya: regime change and control of oil, Obama’s excuse for ignoring the War Powers Act: it’s not war so long as no American soldiers get killed, the continuing quest for a unitary executive, why the US is not a force for good in the world, and why impeaching Obama is the best way to re-impose the rule of law on the renegade US government.
