Ep. 0145: Fool’s Errand: Scott Horton on America’s War in Afghanistan

In this episode, I’m happy to welcome Scott Horton back to the Dangerous History Podcast. Scott is managing director of the Libertarian Institute, host of Antiwar Radio and the Scott Horton Show, and opinion editor at He has conducted more than 4,500 interviews since 2003.

(BTW, My apologies for the audio quality of my conversation with Scott; we were having some noise issues, and I thought I got everything squared away, but apparently not; and on top of it I seem to have messed up a setting or two in the process of battling Skype noise. Mea culpa. But I still think it’s a great discussion worth listening to!)

Join CJ & Scott as they discuss:

  • Scott’s massive labors & achievement in writing the book
  • What’s wrong with the Establishment/Team America narrative of America’s involvement in Afghanistan
  • How & why the war has dragged on as long as it has
  • The economics of the Afghan War, including the ability of many interests to profit from it
  • The question of heroin
