Jeremy Scahill with Tom Engelhardt, Talk, 30 October 2013 – Video

Recorded at the Lensic Theater in Santa Fe, New Mexico on October 30, 2013.

Jeremy Scahill’s new book and film Dirty Wars: The World is a Battlefield, is an investigation into the U.S. government’s covert wars which he suggests are drawing the nation deeper into conflict across the globe, setting the world stage for destabilization and blowback. The talk was followed by a conversation with Tom Engelhardt.

This event was part of the Lannan In Pursuit of Cultural Freedom series.

Jeremy Scahill is a National Security Correspondent for The Nation magazine and a Puffin Foundation Writing Fellow at The Nation Institute. He is author of the international bestseller Blackwater: The Rise of the World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army, which was hailed as “a crackling exposé” by The New York Times Book Review.

He has reported from Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Yemen, the former Yugoslavia and elsewhere across the globe, covering rarely reported news items such as U.S. arms shipments to Pakistan, the deployment of elite U.S. forces to foreign countries, and statistics about the war in Afghanistan. His reporting has sparked several Congressional inquiries and he has won some of journalism’s highest honors. Scahill was twice awarded the prestigious George Polk Award, in 1998 for foreign reporting and in 2008 for his book Blackwater. In 2013 he was a recipient of the Donald Windham-Sandy M. Campbell literature prize at Yale University. He has appeared on television and radio programs including Democracy Now! and Bill Moyers Journal.

In this episode he is introduced by Tom Engelhardt and then gives a talk. The companion Conversation episode may be found here.

Recorded at the Lensic Theater in Santa Fe, New Mexico on February 2, 2011.

Tom Engelhardt created and runs the TomDispatch.com website, self-described as being “for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of our post-9/11 world and a clear sense of how our imperial globe actually works.” In his recent book, The American Way of War: How Bush’s Wars Became Obama’s, Engelhardt documents Washington’s ongoing commitment to military bases to preserve, and extend, its empire; reveals damning information about the American reliance on airpower, at great cost to civilians in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Pakistan; and shows that the U.S. empire has deep historical roots that precede the George W. Bush administration–and continue today into the presidency of Barack Obama. He is the author of a highly praised history of American triumphalism in the Cold War, The End of Victory Culture, and of a novel, The Last Days of Publishing, as well as a collection of his TomDispatch interviews, Mission Unaccomplished. For 15 years, he was Senior Editor at Pantheon Books where he edited and published award-winning works ranging from Art Spiegelman’s Maus and John Dower’s War Without Mercy to Eduardo Galeano’s Memory of Fire trilogy. He is now Consulting Editor at Metropolitan Books, as well as co-founder and co-editor of Metropolitan’s the American Empire Project. TomDispatch.com, which he has fondly called “the sideline that ate my life,” is a project of The Nation Institute, where Engelhardt is a fellow.
