03/08/13 – Peter Van Buren – The Scott Horton Show

by | Mar 8, 2013 | Interviews | 6 comments

Peter Van Buren, author of We Meant Well: How I Helped Lose the Battle for the Hearts and Minds of the Iraqi People, discusses how the US empire overreacted and self-destructed after 9/11; why the Iraq War was the biggest foreign policy blunder in US history; rewarding failure and incompetence in government officials, while whistleblowers are fired and prosecuted; losing the opportunity to partner with Saddam Hussein against Al-Qaeda; and why the Iraq War seems like ancient history to many Americans (if they remember it at all).
