Antiwar Radio: Gareth Porter

Gareth Porter, independent historian and reporter for IPS News, discusses the build-up to the invasion of Afghanistan, why the neocons didn’t care about al Qaeda, “The Getaway,” why the marines had no real ability to get to Tora Bora in time to catch bin Laden, the thinking behind the neocons’ Clean Break policy and pre-9/11 determination to invade Iraq, the various degrees of stupidity and nefarious planning in the administration of the Iraq occupation, and the would-be horror of a John McCain/Sarah Palin foreign policy.
