Alexander Cockburn R.I.P.





Very sad news: Alexander Cockburn, one of the truly great political writers of our time and a man whose opposition to neoliberalism and aggressive military interventions never wavered, has died.

You can read Nigel Horne’s tribute piece from The Week here. While above you can watch an interview with Alexander Cockburn on RT in which he talks about the NATO war against Libya.

I am very sorry to learn this. Alexander Cockburn was 10 times the writer his father Claud had been, and he had about 100 times more moral substance than Claud ever had.

Hi Robert,
Yes, it's very sad. A great anti-war voice has been silence.
