RNC: Jeremy Scahill on Republican National Convention Protesters


| 9/1/2008 4:42:30 PM


Walking up to the RNC demonstrations this morning, passing by the Barack Obama supporters, the Truthers, and the Code Pink protesters, the first person I ran into was Jeremy Scahill. He’s an investigative reporter for Democracy Now!, the Nation, and author of the book Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army. He gave a great intro to what he thinks these protests are all about.

You can watch a video of that below:
