Seymour Hersh: Democracies always ‘led by people that push for more war’ (E153)

Afshin Rattansi goes underground on the war against ISIS. Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh says there is a fatal flaw in democracies that leaves them pushing for war, and that the US and its allies have for years funded the extremist groups which became ISIS, and fed us a narrative that is very hard to change. Sculptor Davide Dormino talks about his project to create bronze sculptures in tribute to Assange, Manning, and Snowden, men that ‘break the system’ and change everything. We take a look at some of the more questionable views of David Cameron’s poverty tsar, co-author of a paper soon to be released on hunger and food poverty. And we look at the headlines in breaking views, with flags, bombs, torture and whiskey hitting the headlines.
