America’s Ongoing Secret Wars -Jeremy Scahill

“American conducts war like it conducts business – in secret and to the advantage of political elites. Jeremy Scahill covers the intersection of war, business and elites in his piece Blackwater Founder Remains Free and Rich While His Former Employees Go Down on Murder Charges for The Intercept.
Jeremy joins TiH! to discuss how America’s secret/semi-secret/open-secret wars are having a very public impact on our democracy, how Blackwater’s founder rose above accountability for his group’s actions, why a silent coup of corporations co-opted the country’s domestic and foreign policies, and what the cancellation of Nightline says about public interest and corporate profit. He also talks about his role in the Snowden documentary Citizenfour, which looks amazing. Jeremy Scahill is an independent journalist and founding editor of The Intercept.”
