Norman Solomon talked about the U.S. military role in Afghanistan and responded to telephone calls and electronic mail. He discussed the 2007 documentary based on his 2005 book, War Made Easy: How Presidents and Pundits Keep Spinning Us to Death. In his book, Solomon argues the recent calls for an escalation of the war in Afghanistan bear a resemblance to the political atmosphere and media tone during the mid-1960s, when the conventional wisdom among media and government leaders was that increasing U.S. troop levels in Vietnam was a necessity. close
