Antiwar Radio: Jason Ditz

Jason Ditz, managing news editor at Antiwar.com, discusses why Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s “turn towards dictatorship” is deemed beneficial to the US; reneging on a promise to put the 2008 Iraq Status of Forces Agreement to a popular referendum; five months of Libyan rebels claiming imminent victory; why, winning or not, the rebels are not the bastions of democracy; whether the NATO bombing campaign is saving civilians, or extending a bloody civil war; and how a 2012 breakthrough in Libya could help Obama’s reelection campaign.
