In a Russia Today segment about American foreign policy, William Blum is asked about his work on exposing the inner workings and motives of US interventions across the globe.
William Blum is one of the United States' leading non-mainstream experts on American foreign policy. He left the State Department in 1967, abandoning his aspiration of becoming a Foreign Service Officer because of his opposition to what the US was doing in Vietnam. He then became a founder and editor of the Washington Free Press, the first 'alternative' newspaper in the capital. Mr Blum has been a freelance journalist in the US, Europe and South America. His stay in Chile in 1972-3, writing about the Allende government's 'socialist experiment', and then its tragic overthrow in a CIA-designed coup, instilled in him a personal involvement and an even more heightened interest in what his government was doing in various corners of the world. He is the author of 'Killing Hope: US Military and CIA Interventions Since World War II', and the controversial bestseller 'Rogue State: A Guide to the World's Only Superpower'. He currently sends out a monthly Internet newsletter, the Anti-Empire Report. Blum's new book, America's Deadliest Export, will be released in early 2013.
"America's Deadliest Export" will be released in early 2013, and further information is available here.
