Spencer Ackerman joins the podcast to discuss his new book “REIGN OF TERROR: How The 9/11 Era Destabilized America and Produced Trump.” We discuss the presence of war crimes in the post 9/11 era as features, not aberrations, of American foreign policy, the search for the “service” in military service, and America’s ongoing love affair with using military answers to solve political questions. Enjoy!!!
Spencer Ackerman is a contributing editor at the Daily Beast. From 2017 to 2021, he was senior national security correspondent for The Daily Beast. He is the author of forthcoming REIGN OF TERROR: How The 9/11 Era Destabilized America and Produced Trump.
