Unmasking The Phoenix Program and America’s “War on Drugs” 10


On this weeks Real Politik journalist and historian Douglas Valentine discusses his research that culminated in the landmark 1990 book The Phoenix Program–the definitive history of the CIA-led counterinsurgency and assassination campaign carried out in Vietnam during the late 1960s.

The controversial military drill spanning seven states known as Jade Helm 15 has officially begun, but with no media allowed to cover the exercises, people have taken to Twitter to speculate on and poke fun at the hysteria surrounding the war games.

An exciting new program will debut on MTV July 22 called “White People.” As the trailer (below) suggests, the show seeks to examine white privilege through the eyes of young caucasians, all of whom in my view certainly have a clear advantage over African Americans, Latinos, and perhaps even some Asians in terms of smarts, education, and job opportunities, simply because of the color of their skin and the fact that in America skin color almost invariably equates to socio-economic privilege.
