Glenn Greenwald on Henry A. Wallace National Security Forum

GUEST: Glenn Greenwald, author of No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA and the US Surveillance State, and founding editor of the new media outlet, The Intercept.

The issue of “National Security” is constantly invoked by politicians and the media as justifications for war and surveillance. Since the September 11th attacks, the US has launched endless wars that have ironically made us less safe and built an unprecedented network of intrusive surveillance. Today, as part 1 of a series of interviews by Uprising host Sonali Kolhatkar with a number of experts, journalists, authors, and academics, we’ll explore what the US’s national security policies have really amounted to. The interviews were produced by the Brave New Films, headed by the acclaimed film maker Robert Greenwald, and are called The Henry A. Wallace National Security Forum.

Henry A. Wallace was the 33rd Vice-President of the United States and served under Franklin D. Roosevelt during WW II. He ran for the presidency on the Progressive Party ticket in 1948 and was an agriculturalist, economist, author and businessman. Mr. Wallace was known as the champion of the “common man” in the struggle against the moneyed elites for control of government and the planet’s resources. On today’s episode of the Henry A. Wallace National Security Forum, we present Sonali’s interview with Glenn Greenwald.

    The “whooshing” noises introduced by the audio editor are extremely annoying, as is the obvious clipping “pops”. Rather than throw in cheesy sound effects, they should have ridden the volume a bit more carefully. Sometimes the content spoken by the talent is a whole lot more interesting than the gimmicks that the editor comes up with.

    Is he Brazilian now, or is he just trying to pass, like Rachel Dolezal? Does he believe any of his parents are black? Grandparents? And what’s the solution to the Confederacy flag controversy?

    I do accept as true with all of the ideas you have offered to your post. They’re very convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are too quick for starters. May just you please prolong them a little from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.
