Philip Giraldi

AntiWar Radio with Scott Horton

Former CIA officer Philip Giraldi discusses his article “Terrorism Arithmetic;” the National Counter Terrorism Center’s annual Report on Terrorism, which statistically proves that Americans are more likely to be killed by televisions than terrorists; the political realities that push Democratic presidents toward ultraviolence (which Obama seems to really enjoy); how international terrorists groups like al-Qaeda have given way to small franchises focused on local issues; the mainstream media’s better-late-than-never reporting on covert US support for Syrian regime change; and the self-perpetuating cycle of US foreign policy, where a new intervention is undertaken to fix a previous botched job, ad infinitum.
