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 October 30, 2012 talk was followed by a conversation with Tom Engelhardt.

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