American Torture: From the Cold War to Abu Ghraib - Wars Do Not Just Happen

Middle East Panorama show on Resonance FM 104.4
Every Friday 14:00 - 15:00 London Time (GMT)

Michael Otterman, an award-winning freelance journalist and documentary filmmaker, reveals in American Torture: From the Cold War to Abu Ghraib (Pluto Press, March 2007) how torture became standard practice in today's 'War on Terror'; an 'alternative set of procedures' and vital tools needed 'to protect the American people and our allies'. (George W. Bush) >> Listen here.

The Israeli historian Dr. Moti Golani from Haifa University will be speaking on 'Wars Do Not Just Happen'. The Most prominent and controversial argument that Golani presents seems to be that "peace has not always headed Israel's list of priorities and war has not always headed its neighbours' list of priorities." >> Listen here.
