Topics

In the wake of the attacks on the World Trade Center last week the mass media went around the world to get international reaction, showing scenes of vigils, a handful full of anti-American demonstrations. The places they didn’t go were just as instructive, places like Iraq, Columbia, East Timor and Yugoslavia, the last country to be visited by a prolonged campaign of bombing by the US.

We go now to Belgrade, Yugoslavia to Democracy Now! correspondent Jeremy Scahill to talk about the reaction there tothe terror attacks and the near certainty of a US led war against Afghanistan.

Guest:

  • Jeremy Scahill, Democracy Now! correspondent in Yugoslavia.
