THE PENTAGON, PETRAEUS & THE MEDIA: INTERVIEW, NORMAN SOLOMON
The Obama administration and the U.S. Military have launched a multi-faceted propaganda offensive to sell a long- term presence in Afghanistan. Author and activist, Norman Solomon, joins host, Linda Olson-Osterlund to talk about the Petraeus media blitz. He'll put it in context and fill in the picture. For more background please listen to my July 22nd show "Captive: My Time As A Prisoner of the Taliban" Heroic tale or Fraud?. I challenge the author, Jere Van Dyk, on the credibility of his story. I now feel certain the book is part of a much bigger government propaganda Blitz. For more on the Blitz; see John Gorenfeld in The New York Observer. He exposes the author of the now infamous Time Magazine cover story about a young Afghani women with her nose cut off. Tune in for a lively and informative conversation!
