Michael Bronner is a correspondent for GlobalPost, an international news site. He is a Peabody and Murrow winner and a multiple Emmy nominee and his latest work is a five-part series based on exclusive interviews with former Geneva-based UBS bank director Bradley Birkenfeld, who turned whistleblower and caused the 2009 standoff between the US and UBS.
Then, it wasn’t until he had spent twenty years as a professional soldier that Andrew Bacevich began to question the truths he had accumulated about U.S. foreign policy. Bacevich is a retired colonel and now a professor of history and international relations at Boston University. He is the rare military intellectual who is listened to by both the right and the left. His newest book, Washington Rules: America’s Path to Permanent War, is a critical rethink of American foreign policy. [Broadcast Date: August 10, 2010]
