A look at US Foreign Policy and American global hegemony through the eyes of the US government’s support of Salafi terrorism and its war on terror

Our guest has a very unique background that is rarely ever heard on a more liberal program.  Dr. Scott Bennett is a US Army Special Operations Officer who specialized in global psychological operations and warfare. He was also a counter-terrorism analyst for one of the nation’s largest defense contractors Booz Allen Hamilton – the same firm Edward Snowden worked at when he released the troves of documents to Glen Greenwald at the Guardian.  Dr. Benett has worked at the highest levels of government – US Special Ops Command, US Central Command, the State Department coordinator for counterterrorism and other federal agencies. From 2003 to 2008 he served in the Bush administration and before that was a research fellow at the conservative Heritage Foundation.  IN addition, Scott turned whistleblower filing numerous reports to Congress on corruption within the government and military, including international banking funding of Salafi terrorism including ISIS. He was also charged, stood trial and incarcerated in a federal prison where he met whistleblower Brad Birkenfeld who revealed the Swiss banks such as UBS tax evasion operations, and much more that we will discuss.  Scott has written and important book of his experiences and investigations – “Shell Game: A Military Whistleblowing Report About the Betrayal and Coverup by the US Government of the Union Bank of Switzerlan Terrorist Finance Connection to Edward Snowden’s Leaks about Booz Allen Hamilton and US Central Command”  His website is ArmyPsyOp.wix.com/scottbennett where you can find further information, publications, and videos and presentations.
