A fine talk by JEREMY SCAHILL based on his book, Dirty Wars. He tells the story of the radicalization of US citizen Anwar al-Awlaki--assassinated by order of President Obama in 2011. He also tells the story of the powerful National Security State, the US's global wars, and Obama's war against whistleblowers. And the story of our corrupt news media, determined to SERVE the powerful rather than hold them to account.
In Part 1, Scahill critiques the media and begins the story of Awlaki.
Scahill delivered this talk at the "Socialism 2013" conference, in Chicago, in June 2013. Video available from wearemany.org.
