Robert Fisk, the award winning war correspondent and dean of Middle East journalists died in Dublin on October 30. He was only 74.

Robert Fisk won more British journalism awards than any of his peers, including British Foreign Reporter of the Year seven times and the Martha Gellhorn Prize for Journalism in 2002. The New York Times described him as “probably the most famous foreign correspondent in Britain.” And that in spite of his principle of speaking truth to power.

Fisk reported for the London Independent on Israel’s invasion of Lebanon, the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, and Syria, without sparing responsibility of the United States and his native Britain for so much of the carnage.

He became one of very few Western foreign correspondents to interview Osama bin Laden in the 1990s, years before the Saudi-born al-Qaeda founder became globally famous. And you will hear him in the upcoming program describe that experience.

In this talk, recorded in November 2002 he talks about the hidden reasons of the Bush administration for going to war against Iraq, about the 911 connection to future wars, and about the aftermath of Afghanistan and his meeting with Osama bin Laden.
