This interview is excerpted from the KPFK 90.7 FM Los Angeles broadcast of July 29th, available here.
John Glaser, Assistant Editor at Antiwar.com, discusses the mind-boggling number of ongoing US wars (6, 7, maybe 8?); how US aid to Colombia, supposedly intended to fight the war on drugs and leftist guerrillas like FARC, ends up going to government-connected right wing paramilitary death squads; Plan Colombia‘s gift to the military-industrial complex; the State Department’s heavyhanded, imperialist meddling in Haitian affairs as revealed by the WikiLeaks cables; and how the Arab spring has unmasked the real purpose of US foreign policy – supporting cooperative dictators and crushing democratic reform.
