Focced - the movie - Scott Ritter, Ramsey Clark, Denis Halliday, Stan Goff


This online video has been cut in Flash 8 streaming technology. You may need Flash 8 to view it. Please allow the page (watch the previews first) so the film has time to load - it's over two hours long. The previews are amazing.

Hope you all enjoy. I had to store the movie in flv format at www.archive.org because it's half a gig and the bandwidth would kill my server. Archive dot org is free and the movie is open source - which is very cool. The film was took 3.5 years and was made in my hometown, Vancouver.

Enjoy... dd

US Foreign Policy in the Middle East.

Featuring the voices of and interviews with more than a dozen prominent social activists including USMC Major Scott Ritter , US Attorney General Ramsey Clark, UN Assistant Secretary General Denis Halliday and hosted by former US Special Forces Master Sergeant Stan Goff.

The Vancouver-based producers of a provocative, pull-no-punches documentary DVD unveiled their work on September 11 last year.

FOCCED is the first in a series that explores the relationship between US foreign policy, domestic budget cuts which hurt the poor, lobbyists in Washington, DC and the electoral process in the USA.

Fellow Americans ... weve been FOCCED, says narrator Stan Goff, a 22-year-veteran of US Special Forces, former Green Beret, Ranger and member of Delta Force. The finance, oil, chemical, credit, energy and defence industries on Wall Street have hijacked the electoral process and turned the federal government into a slot machine designed to do nothing but pay out jackpots. Step by step, Goff and his guests explain the how and why of 9/11, the war in Afghanistan, the war in Iraq, and the so-called war on terror.

Three years in the making, FOCCED is two hours and 27 minutes. It is distributed by Thousand Miles Productions, a BC registered not-for-profit educational society. www.focced.com

10. I am very impressed...
I just finished watching....and talk about cutting to the chase...on so many levels. I can not imagine anyone not being moved by this very well laid out litany of facts that exposes so much. Highly, highly recommend...

12. here are a couple avi files part 1 & 2 for episode 1
part 1 (about 230 MB)
http://ia300133.us.archive.org/3/items/FOCCED/FOCCED_Ep...

part 2 (about 230 MB)
http://ia300133.us.archive.org/3/items/FOCCED/FOCCED_Ep...

some good background info in here (though the background music and animated graphics are a little distracting) it is another must see for anyone interested in hearing the boots on the ground side of the story instead of the M$M's version.

thanks for sharing :toast:

peace

14. Let me see;
Half a gig at dial-up, slow at that, would take me... Until the '08 elections. Wish I had broadband, but I'm poor.
