Bill Resnick: killing terrorists vs. ending terrorism

program date: 
Mon, 05/02/2011

 Bill reminds us of the role the US government had in building Al Qaeda during the Cold War and their support of dictatorships in Muslim countries. These twin strategies gutted labor and otherwise left movements in these countries, leaving the closest thing to a voice of the people in the hands of conservative groups inclined to the use of terror. Bill advocates empowering those (left, labor, peace and environmental) movements that constructively advocate for people's interests and eliminate the conditions of terrorism instead of targeting terrorists.
