Oldspeak:“Truth telling by one of the best in the business doing hard hitting, fact-based journalism, something you don’t see much in this age of vacuous and virulent infotainment. Something like this would never make air in present day corporate – controlled “news” organizations. Documenting the bald-faced lies of presidents both Dems & G.O.P. dating back to Truman, Americans secretly hiring Nazi Scientists after WWII chronicling the inception of the National Security State created in 1947 that dominates foreign policy to this day and begat the long list of C.I.A dirty tricks, regime changes, assassinations, secret and proxy wars (Vietnam, Iran/Iraq, Laos, etc etc etc…). Powerful stuff. Really shines a harsh light on the length and breadth of the profound and sordid influence of the Military-Industrial Complex on this dying empire… And the same ploys that we’re implemented to get the U.S. into wars in the past are being used today only with much more complete and sophisticated manipulation of media. The closest thing we have to this today is WikiLeaks.
