An Iraq war vet named Christopher Runberg has written up this nice thing about digging the show.

When I left the U.S. Army in 2006, I wanted to understand why all I went through was the way it was. I wanted to know why we were on missions like Operation Tiger Walk, or who exactly I was training in Iraq, and for what. I wanted to know what I was so willing give my life for, and what it was for the lives already given.

I quickly became frustrated with the limited prospects of in-depth reporting offered by the mainstream media regarding the Middle East. The major media outlets, Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, etc. lacked the comprehensive and focused approach I was looking for. So I turned to independent media.

In my quest for a critical and encompassing news source pertaining to U.S. foreign policy, only one show stood out meeting my criteria; the show must be comprehensive, have reputable guests, and go to primary sources. Airing daily interviews with experts on foreign policy, international law, and life in the Middle East through the eyes of journalists and those who live in the region, made the Scott Horton Show (formerly Anti-War Radio) stand out above the rest.
