Charles Hirschkind sheds light on the utility of the war on terror for the US empire. He argues that - instead of targeting Al-Qaeda - the war on terror is more focused on targeting anti-imperial movements in certain Muslim countries and protecting pro-US dictatorial regimes. In a cautious tone he also emphasizes the importance of understanding the context in which violent tactics of certain resistance organizations should be understood. The viewer may not agree with everything he has to say. I for one do not. But there are some useful insights that we can surely appreciate. This clip is from a Berkeley teach-in organized in Sep 2006. Checkout more clips from this event on this site or on google video.
