Jim Bovard talks about the legacy of John McCain, who of course has only been lionized more than ever following his death and the controversy surrounding President Trump. The truth, says Bovard, is much more sinister.
Discussed on the show:
- “John McCain’s Disastrous Militaristic Legacy” (James Bovard)
- Keating Five
- Kill Anything That Moves: The Real American War in Vietnam
- “The story behind McNamara’s Morons, Vietnam War’s cruel experiment” (Big Think)
- Secrets: A Memoir of Vietnam and the Pentagon Papers
