It’s democracy, says William Blum, whose obsession since leaving the State Department in 1967 has been chronicling and exposing the seamy underside of U.S. foreign policy. In a wide-ranging interview with Leid Stories, Blum expounds on the theme of his latest book—that America’s superpower status is directly linked to actions it undertakes against other countries that are so antidemocratic, wrongheaded and deadly, they make the regimes of so-called “rogue” nations look like amateurs. Blum publishes the online newsletter Anti-Empire Reports and is the author of Killing Hope: U.S. Military and CIA Interventions Since World War II and the controversial bestseller Rogue State: A Guide to the World’s Only Superpower. His newest tome is America’s Deadliest Export: Democracy—The Truth About U.S. Foreign Policy and Everything Else.
