The Reverend Jeremiah Wright on Blowback

“The stuff we have done overseas is now brought back into our own front yards. 
America’s chickens are coming home to roost.”  

Comment: I was reminded of this quote when I read David Sirota's "A Cronkite Moment for the Blowback Era" (Truthdig: April, 26) this morning.  It is worth a read.

Reverend Jeremiah Wright has also proven not to be wrong about too many things related to the man who sold him out for the White House.

To read more on the concept of 'blowback' see the late professor of political science Chalmers Johnson's work.

For an overview see in particular Sheila K. Johnson's "The Blowback World of Chalmers Johnson: Remembering the Man and His Work" (Huffington Post/Tom Dispatch: April 11, 2011).
