This interview is from the KPFK 90.7 FM Los Angeles broadcast of June 17th.
Brian Becker, national coordinator for the ANSWER Coalition, discusses his article “Why the NATO powers are trying to assassinate Moammar Gaddafi;” the WikiLeaks documents showing US oil companies and State Department officials unhappy with Libya’s steps toward nationalizing its oil; similarities with the 1953 US-backed coup in Iran; how the Arab spring provided an excuse for NATO’s eager intervention; and why the Iraq War may ultimately have been about oil also.
