Interview; William Arkin author; Obama’s Sword; The JOSC, What Role Does It Play?
Which US military force carried out the infamous night raids in Afghanistan? It flies more Drones than any other force and has captured, interrogated and imprisoned over a thousand alleged “terrorists”. Recently it carried out the targeted assassinations of American Citizens in Yemen. You might guess the CIA but you’d be wrong. It is the JSOC, the President's personal sword. Join me, Linda Olson-Osterlund, and my returning guest William Arkin, author of Top Secret America:. The Rise of the New American Security State. He’ll shine a light on this shadowy organization playing a pivotal role internationally.
