On this edition of De-Manufacturing Consent Guillermo is joined by Jacob Hornberger, the President of The Future of Freedom Foundation. We discuss US interventionist foreign policy in Africa and the ongoing situation with Nigeria, Boko Haram, and the kidnapping of nearly 300 young school girls. We take a look at how the "Bring Back Our Girls" media campaign was co-opted by the US establishment (with shades of "Kony 2012") to further push for more military intervention in the region, and how this will only lead to more death and destruction.
Also on the program: the "Cold War mind" in Latin America, the renewed fear of "Russian influence" in the region, calls for US intervention in Venezuela, the potential effects of so-called "smart sanctions," and the case for open borders.
