7 PM: Aaron Glantz Speaks on Iraq and Viet Nam

Pacifica reporter Aaron Glantz will be returning to New College to speak about Iraq and Viet Nam: War and its Legacy, on Thursday, May 25th at 7pm. The award-winning journalist and author visited Iraq three times since the occupation and authored How America Lost Iraq. He recently spent several months on a reporting tip to Viet Nam.

“Aaron Glantz' courageous, unembedded journalism explains the reality of the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq with a clarity and perspective sorely lacking in the mainstream media. He incisively cuts through the fog of war and Pentagon chatter, getting close to the story, as all journalists should. How America Lost Iraq is essential reading as the saber rattling in Washington continues.”
--Amy Goodman, host Democracy Now!

Aaron Glantz is a reporter for Pacifica Radio and other media outlets. He has visited Iraq three times during the U.S. occupation: for a month immediately after the fall of Saddam Hussein; from February to May 2004; and during the elections in January of 2005. His work from Iraq has also been syndicated to newspapers around the world by Inter Press News Service. He recently returned after a four month reporting trip to Hanoi.

Aaron is a founding producer of Pacifica Radio’s national newscast, Free Speech Radio News. In the course of his work he has also reported from Egypt, Turkey, Jordan, South Korea, Indonesia, India, Vietnam, France, and Denmark. Before becoming an international reporter, Aaron served as California State Capitol reporter for Pacifica’s flag-ship station, KPFA in Berkeley, CA, where he won the California Journalism Award for radio in 2000.
