U.S. covert action dissected

Irvine - Even as the U.S. engages in all-out war against terrorism, what is the history of U.S. covert activity abroad? On Subversity this afternoon, we chat with a compiler of U.S. atrocities abroad. Bill Blum is the author of Killing Hope: U.S. Military and CIA Interventions since World War II and most recently, Rogue State: A Guide to the World's Only Superpower (both from Common Courage Press).

On his return visit to Subversity, Blum chats about the history of U.S. intervention in Afghanistan (and its support of Osama bin Laden) and interventions elsewhere and discusses state-sponsored terrorism -- by the U.S.

The show airs from 5-6 p.m. on Friday, October 12 on KUCI, 88.9 fm in Orange County, Calif., and is Web-cast simultaneously via
