09/30/11 – Gareth Porter – The Scott Horton Show

by | Sep 30, 2011 | Interviews

Gareth Porter, independent historian and journalist for IPS News, discusses his article “How McChrystal and Petraeus Built an Indiscriminate ‘Killing Machine’;” how Bob Woodward propagated the “surge” myth that special forces raids won the war in Iraq; targeting “insurgents” with drone surveillance and computerized cell phone tracking, while removing humans from intelligence analysis; why rounding up innocent people for interrogation, based on who or what they know, is a war crime; entering the realm of science fiction with Skynet-type systems that make automated life and death decisions; and how the US tracks and kills cellphones (and the people near them) based on the other phones they associate with.
