9/13/17 Tim Shorrock on the failed diplomacy between North Korea and the United States

by | Sep 13, 2017 | Interviews

Tim Shorrock, author of Spies For Hire, returns to the show to discuss his latest articles for The Nation “Diplomacy With North Korea Has Worked Before, and Can Work Again” and AlterNet “How Sony, Obama, Seth Rogen and the CIA Secretly Planned to Force Regime Change in North Korea.” Shorrock details the 1994 deal with North Korea, which was an important step toward diplomacy between the U.S. and North Korea, how George W. Bush and the neocons torpedoed the deal leading the North Koreans to pursue nuclear weapons, and why diplomacy between the two countries could work despite disastrous U.S. policies towards other regimes who disarmed nuclear weapons.

Tim Shorrock is the author of “Spies For Hire: The Secret World of Intelligence Outsourcing” and a regular contributor to The Nation and the Korea Center for Investigative Reporting. Follow him on Twitter @TimothyS.
