12/13/10 – Rob Prince – The Scott Horton Show

by | Dec 13, 2010 | Interviews

Rob Prince, publisher of the Colorado Progressive Jewish News and lecturer at the University of Denver’s Josef Korbel School of International Studies, discusses the WikiLeaks Cablegate document that shows the Bush administration twisted Ethiopia’s arm to invade Somalia; how former Under Secretary of State for Africa Jendayi Frazer threw Ethiopia under the bus when the invasion turned sour; how the US used Ethiopia as a proxy army against the Union of Islamic Courts (presumably hated because of their name) while US forces were bogged down in Iraq and Afghanistan; why Condi Rice’s ignorance of world affairs (partly excepting Russia) is typical of American statesmen; how a respectable performance in Afghanistan could transform NATO into a worldwide police force; and the US search for a military foothold in Africa — preferably near the continent’s abundant mineral and energy resources.
