Understanding US regime change in Syria – 2017 Panel

At the Left Forum late last month, I took part in a panel discussion of the US war on Syria, along with former CIA officer Phil Giraldi, and communications expert Jason Hirthler, the whole show organized and m.c.’d by Priya Reddy.

The panel was as lively as it was enlightening, not least because one member of the audience went absolutely ape-shit several minutes into my remarks, bellowing in fury at my argument that everything we’ve heard about Assad’s horrendous slaughter of his people is completely false.

Although the others in the audience were (understandably) put off by his behavior (he wouldn’t let me get a word in edgewise), and tried to shut  him up, the interruption proved to be quite valuable as what we call “a teaching moment.”
