Scott Horton Interviews Gareth Porter
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.
