Fool’s Errand Turns 1

My book, Fool’s Errand: Time to End the War in Afghanistan came out a year ago today. It was good timing since I knew that Trump was about to launch his first escalation there and that other than that, the status quo would hold: the Taliban would continue to slowly...

Recent Episodes of the Scott Horton Show

4/12/19 James Carden on America’s New Cold War with Russia

James Carden joins the show to talk about the obsolescence of NATO as the organization turns 70 this year. Far from Russia expanding its influence westward, as was feared, Carden explains how the U.S. has actually been the one to expand eastward, largely by including more European countries in NATO. The new Cold War that has come about as a result is a danger to pretty much everyone, except for the military-industrial complex.

Discussed on the show:

James Carden is the executive editor for the American Committee for East-West Accord and former adviser on Russia policy at the US State Department. He is a contributing writer at The Nation.

4/12/19 Janine Jackson on Defending the Public’s Right to Know

Janine Jackson talks about Chelsea Mannings re-incarceration for her refusal to testify in Julian Assange’s Wikileaks case. Manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison for her leaking of classified state department information, but had her sentence commuted by President Obama after seven years, still the longest sentence served by any whistleblower in America. Jackson lambasts the mainstream media for their failure to support Manning and Assange, since the real purpose of journalism should be to hold the powerful accountable, even if exposing their crimes sometimes involves publishing leaked information.

Discussed on the show:

Janine Jackson is the program director of Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting, and the host and producer of FAIR’s syndicated radio show CounterSpin. She has appeared on ABC’s Nightline and CNN Headline News, among other outlets, and has testified to the Senate Communications Subcommittee on budget reauthorization for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

4/11/19 Joe Lauria on Julian Assange’s Arrest

Joe Lauria joins the show for an update on Julian Assange, who was arrested this morning at the Ecuadorian embassy in London. Lauria explains why it’s so dangerous for governments to prosecute Wikileaks, which is nothing more than a platform for information. This precedent would open any media outlet that publishes government information to prosecution.

4/8/19 John Kiriakou on Chelsea Manning’s ‘Don’t Tread on Me’ Moment

Scott talks to John Kiriakou about Chelsea Manning, who is refusing to testify against Wikileaks. Kiriakou explains that she probably doesn’t want to incriminate herself by forgetting things while rehashing details of previous testimony. Scott and Kiriakou both agree that the prosecution of Wikileaks as an intelligence organization is extremely dangerous for the ability to hold government accountable.

4/8/19 Medea Benjamin Rates the Democratic Presidential Candidates on Foreign Policy

Medea Benjamin joins the show for a rundown of some of the democratic presidential candidates’ positions on war and the military-industrial complex. Some candidates, like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, are better now than they once were, perhaps due to increased public awareness of atrocities like the war in Yemen. Others, like Tulsi Gabbard, have always been principled in their opposition to unnecessary wars. But for the most part, of course, democrats want foreign wars and big military budgets just like the republicans do.

Discussed on the show:

  • “War, Peace and Presidential Candidates” (CODEPINK)
  • “LATE SHOW with David Letterman – September 11, 2002 Bill Clinton, Nanci Griffith (FULL SHOW)” (YouTube)
