Peter Phillips interviews Nick Turse, who speaks about the largely unseen role US forces are playing in Africa,
with a special focus on the civil war in South Sudan. Then Dana Frank and Mark Sullivan discuss
the US-backed Honduran government’s program of free-market “model cities” (ZEDEs), in which
corporate control will supersede the rights of Honduran citizens.
Nick Turse is the author of “Tomorrow’s Battlefield: US Proxy Wars and Special Ops in Africa.”
Dana Frank teaches history at the University of California. Mark Sullivan is an environmental attorney
and human rights advocate.
