On this week’s episode of ‘Behind the Headlines’, we’ll be discussing current affairs with author, historian, and U.S. foreign policy critic, William Blum, whose popular online newsletter, ‘The Anti-Empire Report’, chronicles the global horror that is US foreign policy… or rather, empire-building.
Disgusted at what the United States government was doing in Vietnam, William quit his post at the US State Department in 1967, and became a freelance journalist in the US, Europe and South America. He was also a founding editor of the Washington Free Press, the US capital’s first ‘alternative’ newspaper.
In the 1970s, William worked with former CIA officer Philip Agee in exposing CIA personnel and their misdeeds around the world. Among his many books on US foreign policy, Killing Hope: U.S. Military and CIA Interventions Since World War II, first published in 1995, is critically-acclaimed as the best book on the topic.
Join us this Sunday, 19th July 2015, from 2-4pm EST / 8-10pm CET, for invaluable insights from this pioneer of independent journalism.
