Antiwar Radio: Pepe Escobar

This interview was broadcast on KPFK 90.7 FM Los Angeles on August 26th.

Pepe Escobar, journalist and author of Obama Does Globalistan, discusses his article “R2P is now Right 2 Plunder” about the great fortunes to be made rebuilding Libya and extracting its natural resources; how al-Qaeda operative Abdelhakim Belhadj led the rebel onslaught on Tripoli; concern in Washington about the outcome of NATO regime change – helping install a Taliban-like regime in N. Africa won’t help Obama’s reelection chances; why the Saudi monarchy would prefer a friendly emirate, hard core Sunni government; and the huge stockpile of gold and money available to whatever new government takes hold.
