Jeremy Scahill

Jeremy Scahill is the National Security Correspondent for the Nation magazine and the author of the New York Times best-seller “Blackwater: The Rise of the World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army” (Nation Books, 2007). While on his book tour for his most recent book “Dirty Wars: The World is a Battlefield,” which also made it to the New York Times Best Seller List, he stopped to speak at The Sanctuary for Independent Media in May of 2013. Scahill is also the writer, alog with David Riker, and producer of the documentary film for “Dirty Wars” which did not release until June 2013. Throughout “Dirty Wars,” Scahill took his audience inside America’s new covert wars. The foot soldiers in these battles operate globally and inside the United States with orders from the White House to do whatever is necessary to hunt down, capture, or kill individuals designated by the president as enemies. “Dirty Wars” follows the consequences of the declaration that “the world is a battlefield,” as Scahill uncovers the most important foreign policy story of our time. From Afghanistan to Yemen, Somalia, and beyond, Scahill reports from the frontlines in this high-stakes investigation and explores the depths of America’s global killing machine. Scahill is an intense journalist who got his start on the independently syndicated daily news show Democracy Now!
