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.

Posted May 24, 2017 for week ending June 2, 2017


"At this point, there is circumstantial evidence of improper conduct between members of the Trump administration and Russian operatives during the presidential campaign. ... But the evidence of a coverup continues to mount."

Evidence Mounts That Trump Attempted to Obstruct Justice In Russia Probe

MP3 Interview with Marjorie Cohn, past president of the National Lawyers Guild and legal scholar, conducted by Scott Harris


As Donald Trump embarked on his first overseas trip as president, new bombshell revelations deepened his administration’s escalating crisis. While some Republican legislators welcomed the news that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate charges of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia’s attempt to influence the outcome of the 2016 U.S. presidential election, a hoped-for period of calm never arrived.  Story continues

Saudi Arabia Intervention and U.S. Arms Fuel Escalating Carnage in Yemen's Civil War

MP3 Interview with Kathy Kelly, co-coordinator of the group Voices for Creative Nonviolence, conducted by Scott Harris


As the civil war in the impoverished nation of Yemen entered its third year in March, few Americans are aware of the death and destruction falling heavily on civilians – and their own nation’s involvement in the conflict. The combatants engaged in the war are the Huthis, an armed group whose members belong to a branch of Shiite Islam known as Zayidism. The Huthis are allied with supporters of Yemen’s former dictator Ali Abdullah Saleh, and are alleged to be receiving arms from Iran. On the other side are forces allied with the current President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi supported by a Saudi Arabian-led coalition.  Story continues

North American Indigenous Divestment Campaign Targets Banks Funding Tar Sands Crude Oil Pipelines

MP3 Interview with Matt Remle, member of the Lakota Nation, anti-pipeline activist, conducted by Melinda Tuhus


Earlier this month, a coalition of grassroots indigenous groups from across North America – what they call Turtle Island – joined with more than 100 indigenous nations and tribes in Canada that are members of the Treaty Alliance Against Tar Sands Expansion, to launch a new, integrated divestment campaign. Their targets are the banks funding the Dakota Access pipeline and four other tar sands crude oil pipelines currently proposed to run from Alberta, Canada to other regions in Canada and to the U.S. The targeted pipelines include the Keystone XL pipeline, which was killed by former President Obama, but revived by Donald Trump.  Story continues
