02/07/11 – Jason Ditz – The Scott Horton Show

by | Feb 7, 2011 | Interviews

Jason Ditz, managing news editor at Antiwar.com, discusses Hamid Karzai’s complaint about NATO reconstruction funds being re-routed around his notoriously corrupt regime; how the US uses the Afghan army’s size as a measure of progress, even though it’s comprised of fair-weather soldiers who desert early and often; comparing the costs of a large Afghan army with the country’s GDP (it isn’t remotely sustainable); how Iraq’s Nouri al-Maliki is acting as a one man government, where his official job titles allow him to staff his own cabinet; and how the Egyptian military dominates nearly all facets of the country’s economy.
