In Spiral: Trapped in the Forever War, award-winning journalist Mark Danner offers readers a shrewd analysis of why America's War on Terror has persisted for well over a decade and why it seems to have no end in sight. In a talk and subsequent interview with KPFA's Linda Khoury on July 13, 2016 at Berkeley's Hillside Club, Danner describes the ways in which the terrorist attacks of 9/11 have led America into a perpetual and continuously widening war that has put the country in an endless "state of exception."

TRANSCRIPT

Since 9/11, the United States has been led by presidents with a firm mandate to quash terrorism. But according to UC Berkeley professor Mark Danner, America’s wars in the Middle East have spiraled out of control: worldwide deaths attributed to terrorism have spiked by more than 4000 percent since 9/11, several countries have plunged into civil war and the U.S. is in a seemingly endless campaign of drone strikes. In Danner’s new book, “Spiral: Trapped in the Forever War” he presents a damning analysis of the past two administrations and sheds light on how the next president could possibly change things for the better.

The massacre in an Orlando gay nightclub has focused presidential candidates back onto the so-called War on Terrorism or “the new face of the war on terror.”  This war is now in its fifteenth year and what at one time seemed to be exceptional is now the normal.

KPFA's Mitch Jesenich leads a conversation with veteran journalist Mark Danner, who argues in his book "Spiral: Trapped in the Forever War," that the 15-year long war on terror appears to have no end in sight. Fear has created what Danner calls the sense of “permanent emergency” among the American public and administration alike in keeping the wars in the Middle East percolating.
