Antiwar Radio: Eli Clifton

Eli Clifton, U.S. foreign policy writer at the Washington bureau of IPS News, discusses Lobelog’s Daily Talking Points feature that keeps tabs on the war party’s Iran hawks; contradictory evidence to the MSM’s claim that Arab governments want war with Iran; neocon efforts to scuttle the diplomatic “linkage” of the Palestine problem with other regional affairs; why Hillary Clinton’s softened rhetoric on Iran’s civilian nuclear energy program doesn’t indicate a policy shift; and how establishing a designed-to-fail sanctions regime has been a reliable way to start a war.
