Scott talks to Tom Eddlem about the late Will Griggs’ new book, No Quarter, now out on paperback and Kindle. Eddlem also discusses the anti-Muslim propaganda spread by those who want to make war in the Middle East more palatable to Americans. Eddlem says that most people who promote an anti-Muslim (or anti-immigrant) narrative aren’t being deliberately subversive or evil, but they use statistics that are misleading or only true in a limited context in service of a cause they believe is good for America’s safety. But the result is that those who are deliberately spreading this misinformation have plenty of willing supporters for their cause.
