Award-winning Investigative Journalist Robert Parry (1949-2018)

Award-winning investigative journalist and founder/editor of, Robert Parry has passed away. His ground-breaking work uncovering Reagan-era dirty wars in Central America and many other illegal and immoral policies conducted by successive administrations and U.S. intelligence agencies, stands as an inspiration to all in journalists working in the public interest.

Robert had been a regular guest on our Between The Lines and Counterpoint radio shows -- and many other progressive outlets across the U.S. over four decades.

His penetrating analysis of U.S. foreign policy and international conflicts will be sorely missed, and not easily replaced. His son Nat Parry writes a tribute to his father: Robert Parry’s Legacy and the Future of Consortiumnews.

This Week on Between The Lines

Posted March 23, 2011 for week ending April 1, 2011


"They launched 110 Tomahawk missiles ... there are charred bodies all over the place now. This is not to prevent a temporary humanitarian disaster. This is really about regime change and siding with one side. I don't trust the motivations of the United States."

--Michael Mandel, professor of law at York University in Toronto, Canada on U.S. airstrikes in Libya

Critics Question Motivation Behind U.S. and Western Europe's Military Intervention in Libya's Civil Conflict

Not long after the United Nation's Security Council approved a resolution to enforce a no-fly zone over Libya, the U.S., France and Britain launched multiple air strikes targeting Moammar Gadhafi's air defenses and ground forces. The U.N. Security Council vote on March 17 was supported by 10 nations, with Russia, China, Germany, Brazil and India abstaining. Libya's opposition movement, which grew into an armed rebellion when Gadhafi ordered the violent suppression of unarmed protesters, was by all accounts saved by the international air strikes, as they were in full retreat and preparing to make a last stand in the rebel-held city of Benghazi.  Story continues

Workers at Japan's Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant complex, have been working around the clock to repair the failed safety systems of six nuclear reactors, damaged by a devastasting tsunami triggered by a 9.0 magnitude earthquake on March 11. Efforts were underway to reconnect all of the reactors to the electrical grid, to power cooling systems that can help reduce radioactive emissions into the environment. The number 3 reactor unit, powered by a mix of uranium and plutonium - or "Mox," is being monitored closely, as the fuel is volatile and plutonium is one of the most toxic substances known to man.  Story continues

Study: Wisconsin's GOP Anti-Union Legislation will Disproportionately Harm State's Women

Interview with Glenda Jones, assistant professor and director of Women and Gender Studies Program, conducted by Melinda Tuhus


Legislation weakening public employee union collective bargaining rights rammed through the GOP-controlled Wisconsin legislature by Republican Gov. Scott Walker was put on hold by a county judge in Madison, who ruled that its passage may have violated the state's open meetings law, one of the strongest in the country. If the ruling is upheld, the legislature will have to vote on the bill again. Because one Republican legislator voted against the bill the first time, opponents hoped more Republicans will defect to defeat the measure, or that it may be modified in order to gain passage.  Story continues
