by | Apr 12, 2011 | Interviews

Johann Hari, columnist for the London Independent, discusses his article, “We’re not being told the truth on Libya;” the weapons deals with Mideast dictators pushed by David Cameron, Nicolas Sarkozy and Barack Obama right up through the “Arab Spring;” the US drone attacks in Pakistan that have killed thousands of civilians, yet failed to elicit calls for a protective no-fly zone like Libya’s; the brutal war in Congo, propelled by western corporations extracting rare earth minerals, that could be stopped without dropping a single bomb; and the deal that sent convicted (rightly or not) Lockerbie bomber Abdel Baset al-Megrahi back to Libya in exchange for BP’s access to Libyan oil.
