In this episode, Rashed and Chris speak to renowned journalist, activist, and author Norman Solomon, whose most recent book “War Made Invisible: How America Hides the Human Toll of Its Military Machine” breaks down the grossly underreported aspects of U.S.-led post-9/11 global wars and analyzes the mechanics perpetuating them. From the media’s vital role in the U.S. war-making machine to these conflicts’ ever-growing civilian death tolls, the book chronicles and dissects the jingoistic propaganda regurgitated by stenographic mainstream media outlets to facilitate these forever wars, revealing their lethal hypocrisy and direct roles in all the carnage. It is a must-read for anyone interested in learning the bloody truth behind such neverending massacres.
