I haven't finished reading the whole thing, but one thing stood out and it's something I've seen in many other places as well. Whenever there is some sort of international scandal, for example the bit in the timeline at August 2002 about the missle propellant fuel, they implicate entire countries simply because of a corporation there that did something wrong. Now granted there are times when the particular nation's government greases the skids and is also culpable, but not always and probably not even often. Take for example Enron, do you think all of America should be painted in that same light? (ignoring the fact that OUR government has very liberally greased more than just the skids..).

Just an interesting thing I've noticed lately. All part of the gung-ho GI Joe nationalism bordering on jingoism I suppose. Bleh.

"The War Behind Closed Doors"

About what went on in the whitehouse/pentagon during the leadup to the war.

Once, men turned their thinking over to machines in the hope that this would set them free.
But that only permitted other men with machines to enslave them.
