Maddow's "Hubris" is now on You Tube...all 44 minutes of it.

Looks as if the person who put it up got it from his tv screen, pic is a bit stretched but sound is very good.
If you have a video downloader, tis yours for posterity.

My wife and I will be watching this this weekend. Maybe we can get our 15-year-old son to watch, too. He needs to know American history...

5. 9 years of war

Over 100, 000 dead.
Trilloins of dollars spent.

Nobody on the left or right can definitively tell me why.

thousands of salt shakers filled with powdered weapons grade anthrax in under 45 minutes...

Where were you when they were making up the why?

8. It's also on MSNBC's site....and can be podcasted.

Rachel's MSNBC site:

http://www.nbcnews.com/id/26315908/


And the podcast is free. I get it thru iTunes by searching The Rachel Maddow Show in the iTunes store and just hitting "subscribe"


I'm having a hard time watching it tho' When these awful people like Rummy and Wolfy come on and talk oh-so-seriously and father-figure like to us, my skin crawls.
I distinctly remember back then and vividly remember how I.... a much less political news follower than I am now, an average dumbfuck watching this unfold... back then thought to myself "They want to go to war...SOMEWHERE...anywhere, as long as we are at war. ...to make money no doubt." I distinctly remember feeling these people had no interest in protecting the USA but were more concerned about making money. This is not 20/20 hindsight. It was OBVIOUS then!

9. Good..

Hopefully those that don't have access to MSNBC or the time availability to watch her show will watch it. and also others worldwide.

I passed this on to my friends to watch and also reminded them that 9/11 is also a date to remember in Chili . In 1973 the US aided coup led by General Pinochet overthrew the Chili democratically elected president Allende.

Perhaps many of you have seen the hollywood movie with Jack Lemmon and Sissy Spacek. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Missing_(film)

I read earlier today about that on another DU Post. Why Latin America Didn't Join Washington's Counterterrorism Posse
http://www.democraticunderground.com/101656056

I read the article the op mentions TomDispatch...quite an eye opener.

My mother was never into reading or knowing the actual events happening. She shopped and read the gossip columns. I grew up in the USA and left when I was 20. My mother did not know what the Missile crisis was. Our neighbor came over hysterical...My mom didn't know a thing She never liked me reading so much. She even told me I was weird because I would go to my room and read.

Much of America is like my mom was , very unaware. or like my redneck brother is....just watches fox new, is patriotic because he does not know a thing about any other country. and he hates Obama.

10. "I was weird because I would go to my room and read. "

You are SO not alone about that.

"why do you always have your nose in a book?"
"You think you are better than us, don't you, miss smarty pants"
"reading that much is bad for your eyes"


I left the family as soon as I could, and have never been back.

My mom said all those things.....thanks for letting me know I am not alone...

I get frustrated with America but I know there are good people like you and others on DU.

I shall never return to NJ. maybe never return to any of America.
My remaining son lives in UK now.

Will definitely have to take my blood pressure meds first, I guess.

This is a perfect example of manipulating a vast supposedly intelligent population. The sheeple so to speak. The question is were you one of the convinced, and will you let it happen again.

Don't have TV so I was hoping someone would.

But none of it was new to me...and I bet many others here, because I remember us discussing those things here...and now we know it was not a CT.

24. This is lame

What a joke. Crap reporting like this is what gets us into these wars.

No mention of the fact that Bush pulled security clearances for almost everyone in congress

No mention of the fact that ElBaradei debunked the Niger documents in less that an hour using Google and how those documents ended up on Feith's desk. ElBaradei quickly noticed that even the names of the people holding offices in the documents were wrong.

No mention of the terrorist training camps lie that were really anti-terrorism training camps set up by the Brits. The anti part was omitted from weapons inspector reports.

No mention of the lie that weapons inspectors were denied access which was contradicted by the actual report by Blix and no mention of how the media distorted his comments.

No mention of the fact that the "mobile weapons labs" were really hydrogen generators for weather balloons sold to Saddam by the Brits.

No mention of the fact that Democrats in the Senate wanted a deeper investigation into the Curveball claims by the FBI but were blocked by the Republicans.

No mention of the fact that members of Congress only had limited access to the intel and were forbidden from discussing the intel before voting.

I could go on and on. This is some of the lamest reporting I have ever seen.

27. This is the one I was talking about

Since we arrived in Iraq, we have conducted more than 400 inspections covering more than 300 sites. All inspections were
performed without notice, and access was almost always provided promptly. In no case have we seen convincing evidence that the Iraqi side knew in advance that the inspectors were coming.

30. The truth has been "coming out" for years. Nobody cared and it was to easy to label

the individuals "disgruntled former employees". With so many heavy hitters weighing in on HUBRIS, hopefully this will get the notice it's always needed.

31. Disappointed in it. Wasn't long enough...just a rehash of everything members of DU

and other boards were saying all along. I know it's 10 years in March, but why not do a story on the WAR CRIMES committed or the LIVES LOST, or the TRILLIONS of DOLLARS spent or the LOSS of OUR CIVIL LIBERTIES, etc ?? I doubt that this will make the "true believers", like my family members, wake up to what happened, most still watch FAUX "news"...they'll never watch this even if I send a link to it. I wish they would, but they still believe all that bullshit!

I know that some will wake up and smell what BUSH & co were shoveling, but it's pretty much preaching to the choir, isn't it? IMHO anyway.

Hopefully, they will do more in the future, we need people to finally wake up! I would love for people to finally get outraged about all of this, and DEMAND charges of War Crimes be brought against all the main players!

37. People can demand charges all we want, we're meaningless to the elite

 

They'll invent whatever propaganda is needed to avoid going after the massive corruption that exists because they profit from it. Sounds cliche and I know you're already aware of it but it's sadly true. I'd be shocked if Maddow's 10 year old story made any difference at all.

and just dont see people ever standing up in order to make the changes happen. I truly hope that I'm wrong, but we'll see.
