Myths of U.S. Middle East Policy

Program #ZUNS001. Recorded in Boulder, CO on March 16, 1999.

U.S. policy in the Middle East is promoted as advancing the causes of peace, international law and human rights. These myths, repeated like mantras on the evening news, distort and obscure reality. The region is in turmoil and is ruled by emirs, sheiks, kings and dictators, some of whom are the U.S.'s closest allies. In a powder keg situation, the U.S. is pouring in arms and militarizing the area at an alarming rate.
