02/21/11 – Jonathan Landay – The Scott Horton Show

by | Feb 21, 2011 | Interviews

Jonathan S. Landay, national security and intelligence correspondent for McClatchy Newspapers, discusses the developments in Libya, where the state is losing control and increasing violence against protesters; how the government’s use of foreign mercenaries shows their loss of control over the regular army and security forces; the re-taking of Bahrain’s own “Tahrir” Square and how the massacre of protesters radicalized the demands of reformers; why every monarch and despot in the Mideast – and beyond – isn’t sleeping well;  and how it’s hard to imagine a looming Islamic caliphate while the protesters only demand freedom and democracy.
