The Teetering Empire by Scott Horton

Chalmers Johnson, author of Blowback: The Costs and Consequences of American Empire and Sorrows of Empire: Militarism, Secrecy, and the End of the Republic, and the guest on my March 26 radio show [stream] [download mp3], spent decades as what he now calls a "spear-carrier for empire." According to Mr. Johnson, we have "[t]o a certain extent … been at war since 1940." When the U.S. government told him that our military dominance of much of the planet was strictly for the purposes of "containing communism," he believed them and presumably taught his University of California students the same. He was even employed for six years as a consultant to the Central Intelligence Agency.
