Antiwar Radio: Eric Margolis

Internationally syndicated columnist Eric Margolis discusses the structure of a thoroughly propagandized populace, the al Qaeda moniker’s usefulness as the media’s lazy shorthand for “evildoers,” Yemen’s emergence as the “Afghanistan of the Arabian Peninsula,” the sovereign state of British intelligence otherwise known as the Sultanate of Oman, why Pakistan is wary of attacks on its nuclear installations, how Iranian protests are indicative of some level of political freedom – as compared to regional US allies, the current ill-repute of formerly respectable British newspapers and the daunting challenges for the US in the new year.
