On the show, Chris Hedges discusses the legacy of the Carter administration with his biographer, Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Kai Bird. Jimmy Carter, America's 39th president, who served one term from 1977 to 1981 before being defeated by Ronald Reagan, was one of the country's most enigmatic politicians. He was a bundle of contradictions, a man of deep Christian faith who would be abandoned by his evangelical base; a president who promised to place human rights at the center of his foreign policy and yet fell under the disastrous influence of his Svengali-like national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, leading Carter to equip and arm the radical jihadists who would morph into the Taliban and Al-Qaeda, and give unswerving support to the brutal Iranian regime of the Shah, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi. Carter preached compassion for the poor and the vulnerable while imposing punishing financial policies, deregulation and austerity measures that would take a toll on the working class and the marginalized. And yet in many ways, he was perhaps our most exemplary modern president, refraining from military adventurism, devoting tremendous effort to securing peace in the Middle East, and overseeing an administration that was free from the kinds of corruption and scandals that characterized the presidencies that followed. Kai Bird's most recent book is ‘The Outlier: The Unfinished Presidency of Jimmy Carter'.

Simon Reeve is a broadcaster and writer best known for his TV documentaries which combine travel and adventure with investigations into the challenges faced by the places he visits. His journeys have taken him across jungles, deserts, mountains and oceans, and to some of the most dangerous and remote regions of the world. He's dodged bullets on frontlines, dived with seals and sharks, survived malaria, walked through minefields and tracked lions on foot. Simon grew up in Acton in west London. He experienced anxiety and depression as a teenager and left school with few qualifications. He eventually found a job in the post room at the Sunday Times and from there progressed to working with the news teams, filing stories on a range of subjects from organised crime to nuclear smuggling. In the late 1990s he wrote one of the first books about Al-Qaeda and its links to Osama Bin Laden. His expertise in this area was quickly called upon after the 9/11 attacks in the USA, and he became a regular guest on American television and radio programmes. The current pandemic put Simon's overseas trips into abeyance and he has turned his attention to the UK, recently making programmes about Cornwall and the Lake District.

Anti-imperialist commentator Richard Medhurst reports that Instagram has deleted some 20 images from his account and given him a warning that he could face a permanent ban if he continues making similar posts. The posts in question are screenshots from a Twitter thread Medhurst made to commemorate the two-year anniversary of the Trump administration's assassination of renowned Iranian military leader Qasem Soleimani. Go ahead and read the thread; here's the hyperlink again. There's nothing in there that comes anywhere remotely close to violating Instagram's terms of service as they are written; Medhurst condemns the assassination and the bogus justifications provided for it, and discusses Soleimani's crucial role in the fight against ISIS and Al Qaeda. The reason for Instagram's censorship of Medhurst's political speech is that Instagram's parent company Meta (then called Facebook) determined after Soleimani's assassination that anything which seems supportive of him constitutes a violation of US sanctions and must therefore be removed. In 2019 the Trump administration designated Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a Foreign Terrorist Organization, which was as hypocritical and arbitrary as any other government designating any other branch of another government's military a terrorist organization. Despite this completely baseless designation, both the Meta-owned social media platforms Facebook and Instagram have been actively censoring political speech about Soleimani, who was the commander of the IRGC's Quds force when he was assassinated. Medhurst reports that he has been censored on Instagram under the same justification for posting about Hamas as well. Reading by Tim Foley.

Tiziana Buccico"Racconti d'Afghanistan"Mostra fotografica, Saluzzo (Cuneo).Mostra fotografica “Racconti d'Afghanistan” a cura dell'artista e giornalista Mario Laporta in collaborazione con IGAV.Attraverso le immagini di Mario Laporta scattate in Afghanistan durante la seconda ondata anti-talebana nel 2002, viaggeremo in una nazione nuovamente colpita dai tragici avvenimenti di questi mesi. Un faro su un Paese alla disperata ricerca di normalità.Orari mostra: da sabato 27 novembre 2021 a domenica 23 gennaio 2022Aperta sabato e domenica dalle 10.00 alle 13.00 e dalle 14.30 alle 18.00Ingresso gratuitoIncastonato tra l'ex Unione Sovietica, l'Iran, il subcontinente indiano e la Cina, l'Afghanistan è stato per lungo tempo il crocevia dell'Asia Centrale, attraversato da carovane e popoli migratori che hanno lasciato in eredità un complesso mosaico di gruppi etnici e linguistici. Negli ultimi due secoli, a partire dal conflitto tra Gran Bretagna e Russia definito “il grande gioco” – di cui l'Afghanistan rappresentava un'importante casella sulla scacchiera geopolitica -, passando per l'occupazione sovietica e poi quella statunitense, il Paese ha subito assedi e invasioni, vissuto guerre civili e colpi di stato, caratterizzandosi per un'endemica instabilità prodotta tanto da influenze esterne che dalla complessa frammentazione all'interno.L'arrivo degli Stati Uniti all'indomani degli attentati dell'11 settembre 2001 per attaccare i talebani, accusati di dare rifugio all'organizzazione terroristica di Al Qaeda, ha rappresentato, nel bene e nel male, il tentativo di estirpare un regime estremista per proporre una forse errata trasfigurazione della democrazia, senza tenere in debito conto la complessità e le mille anime che danno corpo al tessuto sociale afghano. Gli avvenimenti recenti testimoniano il lungo e lento fallimento dell'operazione americana che ha finito per riconsegnare il Paese al vecchio nemico che era venuto a combattere.Le fotografie di Mario Laporta, che risalgono al 2002, a Kabul, durante l'Operazione Anaconda, parte di quella che è stata definita la seconda ondata anti-talebana, raccontano di una lieve speranza che si fa strada nella vita del popolo afghano, tra la gente che lentamente comincia a cedere al sogno occidentale. Le immagini testimoniano la voglia dirompente di voler vivere una normalità solitamente negata, riappropriandosi delle proprie tradizioni, dei giochi, del lavoro, dei propri spazi. “Dopo lungo tempo si tornavano a vedere i primi aquiloni, le prime donne senza burqua, i primi scambi di denaro, le prime bancarelle di libri. Per me sono foto che documentano una speranza per il futuro, ma che oggi, alla luce dei tragici avvenimenti di questi mesi, si rivelano un ricordo che forse, per molti anni ancora, non ritornerà più. Vorrei però fossero almeno un augurio, affinché gli afghani possano realmente, e da soli, liberarsi di un regime che vorrebbe riportarli in un passato che la stessa quotidianità popolare aveva definitivamente sepolto” (Mario Laporta).Tiziana Buccico, napoletana verace, classe 1969, da sempre appassionata di politica, cultura e Medio Oriente.

Mark Sleboda, Moscow-based international relations security analyst, joins us to discuss the NATO crisis on the Russian border. The Kremlin has explained why they made their security demands public. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov explained “We have made our initiative public, as explained by President Putin and the Foreign Ministry, because we are aware of the West's ability to obfuscate any uncomfortable issues for them.” Dan Kovalik, writer, author, and lawyer, joins us to discuss Syria. There is ample evidence that the US and UK provided material support for jihadist forces during their "dirty war" against the Syrian people. Also, Israel has increased attacks on Syria under the guise of attacking Iran-linked targets.Gerald Horne, professor of history at the University of Houston, author, historian, and researcher, joins us to discuss Africa. The Ethiopian government was able to turn the tide against TPLF rebel forces using a combination of Turkish and Chinese drones. Also, we discuss the coup in Sudan and the AFRICOM and French connections.Jim Kavanagh, writer at thepolemicist.net and CounterPunch and author of "Danger in Society: Against Vaccine Passports,” joins us to discuss Julian Assange. Jonathan Cook argues that the persecution of Julian Assange is a clear and intentional message to all independent journalists. Cook argues that the message is that they must remain silent to the war crimes of the US empire or face the same fate. Scott Ritter, former UN weapon inspector in Iraq, joins us to discuss NATO's Waterloo. Patrick Lawrence has a brilliant article in Consortium News in which he reviews the situation on the Russian border. He argues that Europe is now the western end of Eurasia rather than the eastern shore of the Atlantic. Also, we talk about Ukraine as NATO's equivalent to Waterloo. Ajamu Baraka, 2016 US vice-presidential candidate for the Green Party, joins us to discuss the Global South. In a move of comedic farce, US puppet Juan Guaido has extended his interim government into 2022. The so-called interim government has been ongoing for two years and has only been used to pilfer money from international financial holdings of the Venezuelan government.Niko House, political activist, independent journalist, and podcaster, joins us to discuss domestic politics. The lack of accomplishment on either domestic or foreign policy seems to portend significant midterm losses for the Democratic Party.Martin Sieff, senior fellow at the American University in Moscow, joins us to discuss Ukraine's infestation with Nazis. Recently, only the US and Ukraine voted against a UN resolution condemning the Nazi ideology. Also, we review the Nazi volunteer battalions of the Ukraine military.

In this episode, accomplished author and veteran foreign correspondent Toby Harnden joins the Crew Reviews to discuss First Casualty: The Untold Story of the CIA Mission to Avenge 9/11, his riveting account of the first U.S. military action in Afghanistan.     "Harnden skillfully interweaves dramatic action sequences with the backstories of the book's central figures, and briskly highlights the failures of U.S. policy in Afghanistan. Readers will be swept up in this little-known chapter of America's 'forever war.'" –Publishers Weekly America is reeling; Al-Qaeda has struck and thousands are dead. The country scrambles to respond, but the Pentagon has no plan for Afghanistan—where Osama bin Laden masterminded the attack and is protected by the Taliban. Instead, the CIA steps forward to spearhead the war. Eight CIA officers are dropped into the mountains of northern Afghanistan on October 17, 2001. They are Team Alpha, an eclectic band of linguists, tribal experts, and elite warriors: the first Americans to operate inside Taliban territory. Their covert mission is to track down Al- Qaeda and stop the terrorists from infiltrating the United States again.     First Casualty places you with Team Alpha as the CIA rides into battle on horseback alongside the warlord Abdul Rashid Dostum. In Washington, DC, few trust that the CIA men, the Green Berets, and the Americans' outnumbered Afghan allies can prevail before winter sets in. On the ground, Team Alpha is undeterred. The Taliban is routed but hatches a plot with Al-Qaeda to hit back. Hundreds of suicidal fighters, many hiding weapons, fake a surrender and are transported to Qala-i Jangi—the “Fort of War.”   Team Alpha's Mike Spann, an ex-Marine, and David Tyson, a polyglot former Central Asian studies academic, seize America's initial opportunity to extract intelligence from men trained by bin Laden—among them a young Muslim convert from California. The prisoners revolt and one CIA officer falls—the first casualty in America's longest war, which will last two decades. The other CIA man shoots dead the Al-Qaeda jihadists attacking his comrade. To survive, he must fight his way out against overwhelming odds. Toby Harnden reported from 33 countries as a foreign correspondent while based in London, Belfast, Jerusalem, Baghdad and Washington D.C. During his work for The Daily Telegraph and The Sunday Times of London, he was imprisoned in Zimbabwe and faced prosecution in Northern Ireland for his work. A dual U.S. and British citizen and former Royal Navy officer, he lives in McLean, Virginia. Don't forget to subscribe to The Crew Reviews, hit the "LIKE" button, and leave a comment.

Ali ibn Abi Talib is arguably the single most important spiritual and intellectual authority in Islam after prophet Mohammad. Through his teachings and leadership as fourth caliph, Ali nourished Islam. But Muslims are divided on whether he was supposed to be Mohammad's political successor and he continues to be a polarizing figure in Islamic history. In The Prophet's Heir: The Life of Ali ibn Abi Talib (Yale UP, 2021), Hassan Abbas provides a nuanced, compelling portrait of this towering yet divisive figure and the origins of sectarian division within Islam. Abbas reveals how, after Mohammad, Ali assumed the spiritual mantle of Islam to spearhead the movement that the prophet had led. While Ali's teachings about wisdom, justice, and selflessness continue to be cherished by both Shia and Sunni Muslims, his pluralist ideas have been buried under sectarian agendas and power politics. Today, Abbas argues, Ali's legacy and message stands against that of ISIS, Al-Qaeda, and Taliban. Adam Bobeck is a PhD candidate in Cultural Anthropology at the University of Leipzig.

How do China, Hezbollah, int'l NGO's, Iran, Palestinian politics, Gaza, Israel, Jihadism, and illicit financial networks connect? Dan and Benny sat down with Dr. Jonathan Schanzer, terrorism finance analyst and Senior VP of Research at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies to find out! Dr. Jonathan Schanzer is senior vice president for research at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD), where he oversees the work of the organization's experts and scholars. He is also on the leadership team of FDD's Center on Economic and Financial Power, a project on the use of financial and economic power as a tool of statecraft. Jonathan previously worked as a terrorism finance analyst at the U.S. Department of the Treasury, where he played an integral role in the designation of numerous terrorist financiers. He has held previous think tank research positions at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy and the Middle East Forum. Jonathan has written hundreds of articles on the Middle East, along with more than a dozen monographs and chapters for edited volumes. His new book, Gaza Conflict 2021: Hamas, Israel and Eleven Days of War (FDD Press 2021), challenges and corrects the some of the wildly inaccurate news reported during the conflict. It is the first book published on the war. His three other books have made unique contributions to the field. State of Failure: Yasser Arafat, Mahmoud Abbas, and the Unmaking of the Palestinian State (Palgrave Macmillan 2013) argues the main roadblock to Palestinian statehood is the Palestinian Authority's political dysfunction and mismanagement. Hamas vs. Fatah: The Struggle for Palestine (Palgrave Macmillan 2008) is still the only book on the market that analyzes the ongoing Palestinian civil war. Al-Qaeda's Armies: Middle East Affiliate Groups and the Next Generation of Terror (Washington Institute for Near East Policy 2004) was the first to explore the al-Qaeda franchises of the Middle East.  Jonathan testifies often before Congress and publishes widely in the American and international media. He has appeared on American television channels such as Fox News and CNN, and Arabic language television channels such as Al-Arabiya and Al-Jazeera.  Links: https://www.fdd.org/ (Visit) Foundation for Defense of Democracies https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09JMFWWDV/ref=dp-kindle-redirect?_encoding=UTF8&btkr=1 (Read) Gaza Conflict 2021: Hamas, Israel and Eleven Days of War  https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CGFJ0XU/ref=dp-kindle-redirect?_encoding=UTF8&btkr=1 (Read) State of Failure: Yasser Arafat, Mahmoud Abbas, and the Unmaking of the Palestinian State https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002BZDDN8/ref=dp-kindle-redirect?_encoding=UTF8&btkr=1 (Read) Hamas vs. Fatah: The Struggle for Palestine  https://www.amazon.com/Al-Qaedas-Armies-Middle-Affiliate-Generation/dp/156171884X (Read) Al-Qaeda's Armies: Middle East Affiliate Groups and the Next Generation of Terror https://www.bostonherald.com/2021/11/29/robbins-the-hamas-caucus-gets-it-wrong-on-gaza/ (Read) a recent article by Jonathan in the Boston Herald: The Hamas Caucus gets it wrong on Gaza https://www.fdd.org/in_the_news/2021/11/25/all-things-considered/ (Listen) to Jonathan on NPR's All Things Considered https://www.fdd.org/category/in_the_news/?expert=jonathan-schanzer (View) all news articles by Jonathan Schanzer Follow Jonathan on Twitter https://twitter.com/JSchanzer?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor (@JSchanzer) Follow Jonathan on https://www.facebook.com/jonathan.schanzer (Facebook) https://foreignpolicy.com/author/jonathan-schanzer/ (See) Jonathan at Foreign Policy magazine As always, make sure to subscribe to Jewanced on https://open.spotify.com/show/6984NiP7H1ULW9lJeVt8Ie?si=6LouGFFLTsq7N2bKJhLXRw (Spotify), https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/jewanced/id1522195382 (Apple Podcasts), or wherever...
