Dateline: Beirut

Program #FISR001. Recorded in Beirut, Lebanon on April 02, 2005.

Audio sample:

The U.S. is burning a perilous path in the Middle East. The empire builders in Washington want control of the region's oil and command of its strategic position. Two key countries are Lebanon and Iraq. And on the edge is Afghanistan. What's really going on there? You won't know much if you're feeding at the corporate media trough with its drive-by journalism.

Interviewed by David Barsamian.
