Description

Richard Drake talks about his studies in international terrorism and how he first became interested after the kidnapping and assassination of Aldo Moro in Italy in 1978. Drake talks about focusing his study on groups like the Red Brigades, the right-wing Malmo International, and other organizations that only become important in times of crisis. He also remarks on America’s bombing of Libya in 1986 and its contributions to the Gaddafi regime, U.S.-Israel relations, and general Middle Eastern terrorism.
