Jeremy Scahill : Telling the Truth

Thursday, September 26, 2019 at 5:00pm

TBD

Jeremy Scahill will deliver the Kops Freedom of the Press lecture.

An investigative reporter and war correspondent, Jeremy Scahill is one of the three founding editors of The Intercept. His latest book is The Assassination Complex: Inside the Government’s Secret Drone Warfare Program. He is also the author of Blackwater and Dirty Wars: The World Is a Battlefield. Teju Cole calls the book “[A] courageous and exhaustive examination of the way a number of clandestine campaigns—full of crimes, cover-ups, and assassinations—became the United States’ main strategy for combating terrorism.”

Scahill has reported from Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Yemen, Nigeria, the former Yugoslavia, and elsewhere. He has served as the national security correspondent for The Nation and Democracy Now! His work has sparked several congressional investigations and has twice won the George Polk Book Award, one of journalism’s highest honors.
