17 October 2013, 12:00 am
German launch of Jeremy Scahill's book "Dirty Wars" In this chilling account, Jeremy Scahill, one of America’s best known investigative journalists, reveals how murder has become a central instrument of US foreign policy. Scahill interviewed CIA agents, mercenary soldiers and US army forces in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia and other locations. Going far beyond the range of the press, he gained access to al-Qaida controlled territory in Yemen, met CIA-backed warlords in Mogadishu and spoke with civilian victims of US Special Operations strikes and drone attacks, incidents that the United States would rather keep under wraps. The book is published in German on 9th October 2013 by Antje Kunstmann.Jeremy Scahill has reported from wars in Yugoslavia, Nigeria and Iraq. In his international bestseller Blackwater he was one of the first to report on the notorious eponymous private security firm operating on behalf of the US in international war zones and on American soil.
