06/23/11 – Eric Margolis – The Scott Horton Show

by | Jun 23, 2011 | Interviews

Eric Margolis, foreign correspondent and author of War at the Top of the World and American Raj, discusses the extent of his experience in Afghanistan during the Soviet occupation; taking on John McCain’s assertion that 9/11 could have been prevented if the US had stayed engaged after the Soviet withdrawal; the Taliban’s rise in mid-1990s, supported by Pakistan to fight against the northern Communists; and why bin Laden’s trap (of luring the US halfway around the world to bleed itself dry) still seems to be working after all these years.
