Salon.com columnist Glenn Greenwald debated Bill Maher on the consequences of US foreign policy and the role of radical Islam. Greenwald quickly put Maher on the defensive, attacking the role of US intervention overseas as the reason for violence, not radical Islam. Maher countered with the fact that Middle Eastern theocracies aren’t comparable to US democracy but Glenn rebutted with the fact that Iran isn’t trying to spread theocracy around the world. However, the US is trying to spread democracy.
Maher quizzed Greenwald on whether America needs to take all the blame for the violence in the world. Greenwald responded that the US is responsible for “most of it”.
