2014 Annual Dinner: Keynote Jeremy Scahill,

Jeremy Scahill - photo credit Jeff Vespa Along with co-editors Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras, Jeremy is amongst a cadre of reporters who speak truth to power and are willing to take risks, personally and professionally, to report on the underbelly of the beast.

Jeremy has done the research to back-up assertions, predicted by Dwight Eisenhower during his farewell address of 1961, that left unchallenged, the Military Industrial Complex, would become a threat to our democracy. Recent events: the Supreme Court rulings on Citizens United and analogous cases; the rise of global corporations and their inherent need for security/protection; the drone strikes and bombings in Syria and throughout the Middle-East; and the DOE-DOD requests for billions of dollars to modernize our nuclear weapons, would suggest the threat is even more tangible and ominous today.

How do we begin to build the movement to roll back the culture of ‘Endless War,’ and the dirty wars and civil rights abuses it continues to spawn?


Jeremy Scahill is an investigative reporter, war correspondent, and author of the international best-selling books Dirty Wars: The World Is a Battlefield (2013) and Blackwater: The Rise of the World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army (2008). He is also a founding editor,
along with Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras, of the online news site The Intercept.

Jeremy has reported from Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Yemen, Nigeria, the former Yugoslavia, and elsewhere across the globe. Scahill has served as the national security correspondent for The Nation and Democracy Now!.

Scahill’s work has sparked several congressional investigations and won some of journalism’s highest honors. He was twice awarded the prestigious George Polk Award, in 1998 for foreign reporting and in 2008 for Blackwater. Scahill is a producer and writer of the award-winning film Dirty Wars, which premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and was nominated for an Academy Award.

Phil Berrigan and Dorothy Day have been inspirations for Jeremy’s involvement in the quest for peace and social justice.
