Counterflow with Buck Johnson


May 11, 2021

My guest this week is the great Scott Horton. Scott and I discuss the War on Terror and when, if at all, American troops will finally be withdrawn from Afghanistan. Biden has already torn up the deal that Trump made with the Taliban to remove the troops by May 1, 2021. We also discuss the CIA and other nefarious groups placating the left by pretending that woke-ism and diversity are important issues to champion. At the same time, many individuals high up in government (some formerly so) are telling the country that right-wingers and libertarians are to be watched carefully as a serious threat to national security. Are we now in the CIA's scope? And speaking of the CIA, Scott gives a very good monologue on just how evil they are.

Scott Horton is director of the Libertarian Institute, editorial director of Antiwar.com, host of Antiwar Radio on Pacifica, 90.7 FM KPFK in Los Angeles, California, and podcasts the Scott Horton Show from ScottHorton.org. He's the author of the 2021 book Enough Already: Time to End the War on Terrorism, the 2017 book, Fool's Errand: Time to End the War in Afghanistan, and editor of the 2019 book, The Great Ron Paul: The Scott Horton Show Interviews, 2004–2019. He's conducted more than 5,500 interviews since 2003. In 2007, Horton won the Austin Chronicle's "Best of Austin" award for his Iraq war coverage on Antiwar Radio. Scott's articles have appeared at Antiwar.com, The American Conservative magazine, the History News Network, The Future of Freedom, The National Interest and the Christian Science Monitor. He was featured in the 2019 documentary An Endless War: Getting Out of Afghanistan and contributed a chapter to the 2019 book, The Impact of War.
