Gareth Porter, investigative historian and journalist specializing in U.S. national security policy, discusses his article about Lt. Col. Daniel Davis taking the Army to task for spreading propaganda: “Army Officer’s Leaked Report Rips Afghan War Success Story;” why it’s hard to tell if the military brass and the Obama administration are lying or just self-deluded about Afghanistan; how Iran’s deep-underground uranium processing facility at Fordo/Qom affects US and Israeli plans to “take out” Iran’s nuclear program with air strikes; and why the “messianic” Benjamin Netanyahu might start a war with Iran even if it means thousands of Israelis will die for no good reason.
