08/01/11 – Jason Ditz – The Scott Horton Show

by | Aug 1, 2011 | Interviews

Jason Ditz, managing news editor at Antiwar.com, discusses the Syrian tank offensive in Hama that killed more than 140 protesters; how previous crackdowns have resulted in ever-larger anti-government demonstrations; a graphic YouTube link that shows what a massacre really looks like; how “days not weeks” became open-ended intervention in Libya, with no end in sight; the assassination of Libyan rebel chief of staff Abdel Fatah Younes and the complexities of civil war; the rebel atrocities that embarrass their supporters in the US Congress; and the political maneuvering in Iraq to allow US troops (or “trainers”) to stay indefinitely.
