Award-winning Investigative Journalist Robert Parry (1949-2018)

Award-winning investigative journalist and founder/editor of, Robert Parry has passed away. His ground-breaking work uncovering Reagan-era dirty wars in Central America and many other illegal and immoral policies conducted by successive administrations and U.S. intelligence agencies, stands as an inspiration to all in journalists working in the public interest.

Robert had been a regular guest on our Between The Lines and Counterpoint radio shows -- and many other progressive outlets across the U.S. over four decades.

His penetrating analysis of U.S. foreign policy and international conflicts will be sorely missed, and not easily replaced. His son Nat Parry writes a tribute to his father: Robert Parry’s Legacy and the Future of Consortiumnews.

How Will Bin Laden's Death Affect the U.S. War in Afghanistan?

RealAudio  RealAudio MP3  MP3

Interview with Mel Goodman, former CIA analyst and senior fellow at the Center for International Policy, conducted by Scott Harris


The nation and world were caught by surprise on May 1, when President Obama unexpectedly appeared on television networks to announce that a special U.S. Navy Seal assault team had raided a compound in Pakistan, killing al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. The news of bin Laden’s death came almost 10 years after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on New York’s World Trade Center towers, the Pentagon and a crashed airliner in Pennsylvania, resulting in nearly 3,000 deaths. In cities around the country, thousands of Americans took to the streets to cheer the news of Osama bin Laden’s death.  Story continues

NOW: GOP Assault on Middle Class is a 'War on Women'

RealAudio  RealAudio MP3  MP3

Interview with Terry O'Neill, president of the National Organization for Women, conducted by Melinda Tuhus


With Republicans in leadership in the U.S. House of Representatives and a majority of states in the hands of Republican governors and legislatures, budget cuts and policy changes are being proposed -- and in many cases, passed -- that disproportionately impact women, especially women of color. At the federal level, U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., won passage in the House of his 2012 budget proposal that would convert Medicare from a program in which the government pays medical bills of senior citizens over 65 years of age --- into a voucher system that provides inadequate subsidies to purchase private insurance coverage. The GOP budget would also make major cuts to social safety net programs, such as food stamps, and impose a 35 percent cut on Medicaid and turn the program into state-administered block grants. In contrast to the deep cuts, Ryan’s budget reduces the tax burden on the nation’s wealthiest citizens and big corporations.  Story continues

Interview with Michio Kaku, theoretical physicist and author of "Physics of the Future" , conducted by Scott Harris


The March 11 Japanese earthquake and tsunami that killed 14,700 people and left an estimated 11,000 missing also destroyed the Fukushima nuclear power plant complex in the north of the country. On April 21, the Japanese government evacuated residents living within a 20-kilometer radius of the disabled nuclear complex -- and barred them from returning to their homes due to increased levels of radiation.  Story continues
