Your Call: Trapped in the forever war
On the August 5th edition of Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll have a conversation with veteran journalist Mark Danner about his new book Spiral: Trapped in the Forever War.
Nearly 15 years after the 9/11 attacks, he says the cycle of politics of fear has accelerated. Drone attacks, warrantless surveillance and other practices once unthinkable remain quietly accepted weapons in an endless war. Is there an end in sight? Join the conversation, on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.
Mark Danner, veteran journalist, professor of journalism at UC Berkeley, and author of SPIRAL: Trapped in the Forever War
