Hijacking Catastrophe: 9/11, Fear and the Selling of American Empire

What is much better than trying to read all of my archives?

Watching a short movie that clearly lays out how a small group of men hijacked America to pursue their dream of Empire.
Hijacking Catastrophe is powerful, understated, straightforward and educational. In a single meticulously organized hour of evidence and analysis, viewers are treated to a thoughtful explanation of modern American empire, neo-conservatism as a driving force for the current Bush administration. - Karen Kwiatkowski (Lt. Col. USAF retired) Pentagon Near East and South Asia military analyst
Narrated by Julian Bond, Hijacking Catastrophe features interviews with more than twenty prominent political observers and extensive film clips and photos of administration officials. Just the beginning with a video montage of all the administration's alarming speeches playing on fear to convince the public to go to war is a must have.

Some sedition quotes:
"If you join the United States military now, you are not defending the United States of America; you are helping certain policy-makers pursue an imperial agenda."

"At the end of the summer of 2002, new space had been found upstairs on the fifth floor for an "expanded Iraq desk." It would be called the Office of Special Plans. We were instructed at a staff meeting that this office was not to be discussed or explained, and if people in the Joint Staff, among others, asked, we were to offer no comment. We were also told that one of the products of this office would be talking points that all desk officers would use verbatim in the preparation of their background documents."

"By August, only the Pollyannas at the Pentagon felt that the decision to invade Iraq, storm Baghdad, and take over the place (or give it to Ahmad Chalabi) was reversible."
