Jeremy Scahill on Obama’s War Machine, American Assassinations & Journalism

Follow Sierra @ http://www.twitter.com/sierra_adamson

Sierra Adamson talks to Jeremy Scahill, author of Blackwater and writer for The National, about some of the under-reported issues such as drone strikes in the Middle East, Obama’s kill list/Disposition Matrix, NDAA, use of the Espionage Act against whistle-blowers. Jeremy talks about the assassination of the 16 year old American citizen, Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, who was killed by a drone strike authorized by President Obama and the response Robert Gibbs recently gave us when we questioned him on it. He discusses the left’s disregard of their anti-war principles in favor of being loyal to leaders in their own party and the war propaganda that is fed to Americans through mass media.
