Bennis explains how US actions in the Middle East gave rise to ISIS and sustain it. Since ISIS's terrorism is a response to the profound damage the US military has done to the region--and to other US crimes and blunders--still more US military action will only make matters worse.

There is no military solution. A diplomatic solution is possible--but does the US even WANT one?

Also in Part 2: Bennis brings in Israel, Palestine, and Saudi Arabia; and KD adds a few thoughts on 9-11 coverups.
Bennis spoke in Seattle on February 2, 2016. Original recording courtesy of Mike McCormick, of "Mind Over Matters." Many thanks.

"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "aegis") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
Phyllis Bennis's new book is "Understanding ISIS and the New Global War on Terror: A Primer" (2015).
