Antiwar Radio: Umar Farooq

Umar Farooq, intern at The Nation, discusses his article “Our immoral drone war;” why the media pursues a cause-and-effect rationalization when an American commits an atrocity, but not when a Muslim does; the cycle of violence and radicalization in the US and Pakistan; why billions in US aid to Pakistan aren’t enough to offset the War on Terror’s destructive force; and whether Stanley McChrystal’s “insurgent math” applies to Pakistanis as well as Afghans.
