Hijacking Catastrophe

This documentary examines how a radical fringe of the Republican Party used the trauma of the 9/11 terror attacks to advance a pre-existing agenda to radically transform American foreign policy while rolling back civil liberties and social programs at home.

The documentary places the Bush Administration’s false justifications for war in Iraq within the larger context of a two-decade struggle by neoconservatives to dramatically increase military spending in the wake of the Cold War, and to expand American power globally by means of military force.

  1. Okay, looks like it is working now.

    This may be a biased hatchet job, but it is all too true.

  2. I’d love to say how true this all is but my logged in status goes away when I go to the doc. I’m sure it is Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld at work!!
