Don't miss investigative journalist and Nation Books author Jeremy Scahill at The New School in New York City on May 31st. Scahill will be in conversation with Spencer Ackerman, a national security reporter and blogger for Wired magazine.
More than five years ago, Jeremy Scahill's debut book Blackwater -about the world's most secretive and powerful mercenary firm-exposed the dark side of the war on terror and became a New York Times bestseller. For his much anticipated second book, Dirty Wars: The World Is a Battlefield, Scahill reports from Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia, and beyond, and explores the depths of America's global killing machine. What he uncovers is the most important foreign policy story of our time - the truth about America's secret wars. The foot soldiers in these battles operate globally and inside the US with orders from the White House to do whatever is necessary to hunt down, capture, or kill individuals designated by the president as enemies.
