Audio of John Cusack Interview on “War, Inc.’

Here is an audio of Scott Horton’s interview of actor, producer, and writer, John Kusack about his new film satire, “War Inc.”

The film opened on May 23 in New York and Los Angeles and in the interview, according to this description, Cusack expresses his outrage at the criminality of modern American war profiteers, the need for a grassroots bumrush of the first showings to guarantee national distribution, some critics’ complaints that the movie “hits too close to home,” the great journalists whose work has inspired him, the socialization of the costs of all these private armies onto the American tax payer, the outsourcing of interrogation, the betrayals of the Democrats, the banality of evil, the short-changing of the troops while private mercenaries cash in and militarism in the movies.
