03/29/11 – Gareth Porter – The Scott Horton Show

by | Mar 29, 2011 | Interviews

Gareth Porter, independent historian and journalist for IPS News, discusses how the joint congressional testimony of Gen. Petraeus and Michele Flournoy betrays the Obama administration’s intent to stay in Afghanistan indefinitely; why a never-ending military presence greatly hinders negotiations with the Taliban; why pipeline politics remain a peripheral issue in US war-making decisions; the resilience of loyal Obama supporters who still see hope and change in this train wreck of a presidency; and how humanitarian interventions, whether successes or failures, empower the war-hawks.
