Antiwar Radio: Eric Margolis

Eric Margolis, foreign correspondent and author of War at the Top of the World and American Raj, discusses the extent of his experience in Afghanistan during the Soviet occupation; taking on John McCainís assertion that 9/11 could have been prevented if the US had stayed engaged after the Soviet withdrawal; the Talibanís rise in mid-1990s, supported by Pakistan to fight against the northern Communists; and why bin Ladenís trap (of luring the US halfway around the world to bleed itself dry) still seems to be working after all these years.
