05/13/11 – Gareth Porter – The Scott Horton Show

Gareth Porter, independent historian and journalist for IPS News, discusses the minimal impact Osama bin Laden’s death has had – or will have – on US foreign policy; how the Obama administration’s insta-bragging makes clear the operation was a domestic political ploy rather than a blow against terrorism or an intelligence bonanza; keeping US troops in Afghanistan long past 2014 through a strategic partnership with the Karzai regime; how the security situation in Afghanistan is getting worse, if that can be imagined; and why David Petraeus’s CIA job probably won’t help his presidential ambition.
