In case someone missed the superb article, “Why Americans Must End America’s Self-Generating Wars,” by the incomparable Peter Dale Scott, here it is once again. Dr. Scott is simply amazing. For decades his indefatigable commitments to truth and justice have guided his path-breaking research in critical areas of “Deep Politics” where few historians and investigative journalists dare to follow. For several years I have actively commended his body of work to LRC readers, in particular his magnum opus, American War Machine: Deep Politics, the CIA Global Drug Connection, and the Road to Afghanistan. His impassioned clarion call for a new principled antiwar movement “should appeal to a broad spectrum of the American electorate, from the viewers of Democracy Now on the left to the libertarian followers of Murray Rothbard, Ron Paul, and Lew Rockwell on the right.” Indeed.
