Michael Flynn on Antiwar Radio
Scott Horton of Antiwar Radio interviews Michael Flynn, project director of the excellent IPS RightWeb, your guide to influential organizations and individuals who promote militarist U.S. foreign policy. RightWeb is an excellent resource for analysts and journalists — for example, check out their profile on William Kristol, a prominent leader of the US neoconservatives and one of the backers of the newly formed neocon lobbying group, the Emergency Committee for Israel (currently waging a smear war on US midterm election candidates who they deem “anti-Israel”).
Antiwar Radio — Michael Flynn, project director of IPS Right Web, discusses his website’s devotion to profiling individuals who promote militarist U.S. foreign and defense policies, William Kristol’s Emergency Committee for Israel advocacy group, the unrelenting push for war with Iran and the close family relationships between the (relatively few) neocon true believers.
Michael Flynn is project director of IPS Right Web and a writer based in Geneva, Switzerland. He is the founder and lead researcher of the Geneva-based Global Detention Project, a former associate editor of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, a past fellow of the International Reporting Project (formerly the Pew International Journalism Program), and the recipient of multiple grants from the Fund for Investigative Journalism.
His articles have been published by the Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, the Inter Press Service, Asia Times, and Mexico’s Reforma, among other media outlets. He holds a bachelor’s in philosophy from DePaul University and a master’s in international relations from the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies.
