Antiwar Radio: Alan J. Kuperman

Alan J. Kuperman, Associate Professor of Public Affairs at the University of Texas, Austin, discusses his op-ed “False pretense for war in Libya?” in the Boston Globe; how low civilian casualty figures in other recaptured rebel-held cities make the supposedly imminent danger of a Benghazi massacre seem far-fetched; Obama’s misleading quotation of Gadhafi’s “no mercy” comment that was directed at rebel fighters who wouldn’t surrender, not civilians; and why the NATO bombing of retreating loyalist forces and Gadhafi’s hometown has more to do with regime change than protecting civilians.
