Pushback: Anti-war Veterans Explain How US Lost Afghanistan While Leaders Lied, Profited

Two US veterans, Matthew Hoh and Daniel Sjursen, explain how the war in Afghanistan was lost, Afghans suffered, and military contractors profited — all while the American public was kept in the dark. Guests: Danny Sjursen. Retired US Army officer, senior fellow at the Center for International Policy. He served combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and later taught history at West Point. His latest book is “A True History of the United States.” https://twitter.com/SkepticalVet

  1. This broadcast hosted by Aaron Mate is absolutely fabulous. Two people who were actually in Afghanistan and refused to go along with the charade. Brave people who put morality and ethics before career and money, willing to speak truth to power. Two guys cut from the same cloth as Smedley Butler, author of “War is a Racket” back in 1935. Nothing has changed since then. https://ratical.org/ratville/CAH/warisaracket.html
