For those interested in the work and contributions of Chalmers Johnson, I’ll be chatting this morning with National Public Radio’s Worldview Host Jerome McDonnell of WBEZ Chicago. Best to check the schedule at McDonnell’s website.
It occurs to me that Chalmers would love the sizzle that Wikileaks has given to foreign policy discussion in the country — and the pressure it has put on those managing the “American empire.”
Chalmers Johnson would also be saying that Mullah Omar is one of the smartest people on the planet if he’s been able to get the US to commit $119 billion (FY11) to the Afghanistan War in a country with annual GNP of $14 billion. Chal would say that a good chunk of that money is flowing right into the accounts of people supporting the Taliban.
