Antiwar Radio: Steve Horn

Steve Horn, researcher and writer at DeSmogBlog, discusses the Chicago NATO Summit activists arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit terrorism and providing material support for terrorism; the two informants who infiltrated the group and possibly planted or invented evidence; the home-brew kit Chicago police apparently “mistook” for a Molotov cocktail-maker; the activists held in solitary confinement and held without charge for days; why the cops and feds are so afraid of the Occupy Movement; and why Wall Street banks are hiring private security.

Steve Horn and Allen Ruff discuss their two-part article at Truth-Out, “How Private Warmongers and the US Military Infiltrated American Universities;” how the allies of empire (from neoconservatives to liberal hawks) united to promote “Grand Strategy Programs” – essentially elaborate fictions used to trick Americans into supporting endless warfare; the group of military officers and academics behind David Petraeus and his PR-focused military doctrine; and how radicals have succeeded in redefining the political center and the acceptable range of foreign policy opinions.

Truth-out writer Steve Horn discusses his article “Top Oil and Gas Executives Had Major Presence at Bahrain Conference;” how the Saudi Arabian-led Gulf Cooperation Council put down protests in Bahrain and kept the minority monarchy in power; the leftists who forget about Mideast autocracies and US military occupations whenever “green energy” is mentioned; the oil companies planning a major increase in Bahrain’s oil and gas production; and how the Carter Doctrine – the policy of pursuing US military dominance in the Persian Gulf – has been embraced by Republican and Democratic administrations alike since 1980.
