Jessica Turner 9 August 2012

Matt Kennard, author of the forthcoming Irregular Army: How the US Military Recruited Neo-Nazis, Gang Members, and Criminals to Fight the War on Terror appeared on Democracy Now this morning in a special segment about Sunday's Oak Creek, Wisconsin Sikh temple massacre, shooter Wade Michael Page and his research on the rise of white supremacist, neo-Nazi and violent extremists in the US military.

Matt Kennard has been researching the impact of the War on Terror on US military recruitment of extremists, gang members, the mentally unstable, and far-right; his book, to be released this September, collects this work, painting a startling picture of the threat posed on domestic soil by the fanatics being armed and trained in high-grade weaponry with American tax-payer dollars.
