Antiwar Radio: David Vine

David Vine, author of Island of Shame: The Secret History of the U.S. Military Base on Diego Garcia, discusses the post-WWII origin of the Diego Garcia military base, how the native Chagossian population – descended from slaves and indentured servants from French colonial times – was forcibly relocated 1200 miles away to Mauritius, the numerous other incidents of displaced native populations in U.S. history and how Diego Garcia is becoming a hub for the U.S. empire’s global tentacles.
