In Part 2 of this fine talk, JEREMY SCAHILL tells of Obama's secret war in Yemen, revealed by Yemeni journalist Abduleleh Haider Shaye--who was then abducted by US forces and imprisoned by Yemen's dictator at the insistence of President Obama. Contrast Haider Shaye's courage with the sycophancy of US journalists.
Scahill tells also of the US war against the press--and of the government-ordered assassination without trial of US citizens Anwar al-Awlaki and then his 16-year-old son Abdulrahman.
Scahill delivered this talk at the "Socialism 2013" conference, in Chicago, in June 2013. Video available from wearemany.org.
New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "table") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
I have made a few cuts in the talk to fit the time slot--plus snipped out some stumbles & ummms.
