KPFK: Background Briefing with Ian Masters





We speak with writer, journalist and professor, Mark Danner, about his new film at VICE News in collaboration with the New York Review of Books, “How the U.S. Created the Islamic State”.  We look into the role of the prison system set up by the U.S. following the invasion and occupation of Iraq that detained 24,000 men in 24 camps, including the top commanders of what was to become the senior leadership of the Islamic State who were able to organized the terror group at Camp Bucca right under the noses of their American jailers.
