CIA dishonesty on Iran and US-sponsored catastrophe in Yemen – Interview with David Swanson

I had the privilege of joining David Swanson on his show Talk Nation Radio to discuss US foreign policy under President Trump.

We addressed the CIA’s absurd attempts to link Iran to al-Qaeda, which I detailed in an article in AlterNet’s Grayzone Project: “How Trump’s CIA Used Bin Laden Files and a Neocon Think Tank to Escalate Tensions With Iran“.

Swanson and I also spoke of the 32-month US war on Yemen, which has created the largest humanitarian catastrophe in the world and unleashed the biggest cholera epidemic in recorded history.

I explained how corporate media outlets have systematically downplayed the responsibility of the US-Saudi coalition for carrying out attacks on Yemeni civilians. I have written about this further at Fairness & Accuracy In Reporting (FAIR): “How Media Obscure US/Saudi Responsibility for Killing Yemeni Civilians“.
