3. Interesting video
This programs' ability to give a person time to present their opinion and facts is what is missing from news programs. It just brings out what a joke our media is. This interviewer did what interviewers are supposed to do not perform like Cris Matthews, etc. The public, right or left, want to hear all sides but that is not to happen. Never has the public been so controlled. Truly frightening.

Karen described the neocons perfectly and concisely. Explained the leadup to the war concisely. Too bad so few even know what is really going on.

17. Mother Jones article from 2004
http://www.motherjones.com/news/feature/2004/01/12_405.html

This special Mother Jones investigation late last year detailed how, only weeks after 9/11, the Bush administration set up a secret Pentagon unit to create the case for invading Iraq. Here is the inside story of how they pushed disinformation and bogus intelligence and led the nation to war.


SNIP

Kwiatkowski, 43, a now-retired Air Force officer who served in the Pentagon's Near East and South Asia (NESA) unit in the year before the invasion of Iraq, observed how the Pentagon's Iraq war-planning unit manufactured scare stories about Iraq's weapons and ties to terrorists. "It wasn't intelligence -- it was propaganda," she says. "They'd take a little bit of intelligence, cherry-pick it, make it sound much more exciting, usually by taking it out of context, often by juxtaposition of two pieces of information that don't belong together." It was by turning such bogus intelligence into talking points for U.S. officials -- including ominous lines in speeches by President Bush and Vice President Cheney, along with Secretary of State Colin Powell's testimony at the U.N. Security Council last February -- that the administration pushed American public opinion into supporting an unnecessary war.
