This Thursday evening on The Solari Report (6pm PT/9pm ET) I will be speaking with former diplomat, professor, historian and poet, Peter Dale Scott. Peter is the author of numerous books on American political history and "deep politics." I recently reviewed his latest book, The American War Machine: Deep Politics, the CIA Global Drug Connection and the Road to Afghanistan:
"Peter Dale Scott... has long been considered mandatory reading for serious students of the "deep politics" of American power. His new book, however, is a tour de force, integrating decades of serious scholarship and unique insight and sources. Skillfully written, it abounds with the grace and forgiveness of the mature master who appreciates that positive solutions begin with transparency about the means - as well as collective complicity and denial - that delivered us into our current condition."
Peter is a brilliant historian and thinker. He is also a gracious, wonderful human being. Each time I read his books or enjoy one of his poems or, best of all, have the rare opportunity to speak with him, I leave the experience feeling richly informed and more coherent.
I will start with Money & Markets and Ask Catherine. In Let's Go to the Movies, a comment on Guerrilla News Network's award winning short, Crack the CIA, that addresses allegations of government involvement in narcotics trafficking during the crack cocaine epidemic.
