September 11th, 2001 led to a new era of the American war machine, certainly in Afghanistan and Iraq, but also with military actions in at least 20 other countries since. As the years have passed, we seem to be less and less aware of ongoing and active US military actions. Why is that? And in the face of a propaganda machine that doesn’t bring this country’s war mongering into media consumption every day, what does it mean to build an anti-war movement? Our guest today is Norman Solomon, a journalist, media critic, activist and author of more than a dozen books. His latest book is called War Made Invisible: How America Hides the Human Toll of Its Military Machine.
