The Dark Side of United States Foreign Policy

Program #STOJ001. Recorded in Boulder, CO on April 10, 1987.

2 CDs

In one of AR’s earliest and greatest hits, veteran CIA agent, John Stockwell turns on the klieg lights to illuminate the dark side of Washington’s policies. He takes us through U.S. covert actions and black operations with a focus on Central America. He discusses Reagan’s destabilization campaign and low intensity war to overthrow the Sandinistas in Nicaragua. He analyzes the propaganda and “orchestration of public opinion” to generate support for intervention and war not just in Nicaragua but also around the world. And he warns against the influence of the military-industrial complex. After his lecture, Stockwell engages the audience in a lively Q&A.
