Diego Garcia is a tiny island in the Indian Ocean. David Vine discovered that the entire indigenous population was removed in the 1960's -- to make way for a massive American military base. His research into how that happened led to the book called Base Nation: How US Military Bases Abroad Harm America and the World.
