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.

Arab League Intervenes as Syrian Uprising on Verge of Civil War

RealAudio  RealAudio MP3  MP3

Interview with Joshua Landis, director of the Center for Middle East Studies at the University of Oklahoma, conducted by Scott Harris


Like many of its neighbors throughout the Middle East and North Africa, Syrians took to the streets last March, demanding political and economic reforms from the nation’s authoritarian President Bashar al-Assad. The United Nations estimates that 5,000 civilians have been killed in a brutal government crackdown that continues to escalate. In reaction to the rising violence and the very real possibility of a civil war, the Arab League attempted to intervene in early November. Although President Assad agreed in principle to the League proposal to send monitors into his country and begin negotiations with the opposition, he delayed signing the accord until December 19th.  Story continues

Interview with Ian Finkenbinder, activist with the Occupy Wall Street movement in Seattle, conducted by Melinda Tuhus


On the third month anniversary of the launch of the Occupy Wall Street encampment in New York City, activists were taking stock of the enormous growth of their movement across the nation and the world – and the subsequent police suppression and eviction of activists from dozens of their camps in public spaces. In New York City, occupiers who had earlier been evicted from Zuccotti Park attempted to re-occupy Duarte Square on Dec. 17, a property owned by Trinity Church, which resulted in some 50 arrests when clergy members and others climbed over the park fence in a symbolic act of civil disobedience.  Story continues

Cindy Sheehan Reflects on the Cost and Legacy of the Iraq War

Interview with Cindy Sheehan, peace activist and mother of slain U.S Army specialist Casey Sheehan, conducted by Scott Harris


The "official" U.S. war and occupation of Iraq came to a close last week, with the last American combat troops crossing the border into Kuwait on Dec. 18. At least 4,485 members of the U.S. military have died in the Iraq war that was launched by President George W. Bush in March 2003. More than 32,000 U.S. servicemen and women have been wounded in hostile action, during the course of the nine years of war. Estimates of the number of Iraqis killed during the war range from 100,000 to over 1 million. Despite the end of America’s combat mission in Iraq, the U.S. continues to operate the largest embassy in the world in Baghdad, maintaining a staff of more than 15,000 and 5,000 private security guards.  Story continues
