Scahill has done critical work to uncover one of the most important foreign policy stories of our time. From Afghanistan to Yemen, Somalia and beyond, Scahill reports from the frontlines of America’s War on Terror. The talk will be followed by a conversation with Gary Younge, columnist for theGuardian and author of The Speech.
A book signing will follow the event.
