Antiwar Radio: Chris Hedges

Chris Hedges, co-author of the new book Collateral Damage: America’s War Against Iraqi Civilians, discusses the recent talk of lifting the blockade against Gaza and the horrific conditions and collective punishment inflicted by Israel, how the U.S. troops in Iraq are in an atrocity producing situation, the black-out by the U.S. media of the brutal reality of the Iraq occupation, the civilian killing “flying check points,” how the Bush regime converted the mass Muslim sympathy towards the U.S. following 9/11 into wide-spread resentment and al Qaeda’s best recruitment tool and how another attack on America will most likely turn us into a total police state.
