War Information Summaries
For the best, most concise introduction to what's going on in the military/industrial complex, we highly recommend the summary of General Butler's book War is a Racket. That war is a racket has been told us by many, but rarely by one of this stature. Though he died in 1940, the highly decorated General Smedley Butler (two Congressional Medals of Honor) deserves to be heralded for his timeless message. This riveting book merits inclusion as required reading for every high school student, and for every member of our armed forces today. For a fascinating History Channel video on how Gen. Butler stopped a plot to overthrow FDR, click here

Best Free Video Exposing the War on Terror
The Power of Nightmares is a revealing BBC documentary that digs deep into the roots of the war on terror, only to find that much of the widespread fear in the post 9/11 world has been fabricated by those in power for their own interests. The intrepid BBC team presents highly informative interviews with top officials and experts in combating terrorism who raise serious questions about who is behind all of the fear-mongering. This eye-opening documentary shows that, especially after 9/11, fear has been used to manipulate the public into giving up civil liberties and turning over ever more power to elite groups with their own hidden agendas. The Power of Nightmares clearly demonstrates that the nightmare vision of a powerful, united terrorist organization waiting to strike our societies is largely an illusion. For all citizens who care about the future of our world, this is a must-watch video.

Most Important War Information Documents
One day before the 9/11 attacks, US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld made the astonishing admission, "According to some estimates we cannot track $2.3 trillion in transactions." This astonishing fact is reported on the CBS website (below article provides link). As pointed out by CBS, "$2.3 trillion – that's $8,000 for every man, woman and child in America." In other key reports, we learn that this figure came from a report of the Pentagon's inspector general. "Its own auditors admit the military cannot account for 25 percent of what it spends," reports CBS News Correspondent Vince Gonzales. Why is this startling news not given top headlines in all major media? Why to this day is the press hardly mentioning this most vital issue?
A Second War Information Document: An ABC article at the link below describes how America's top military leaders drafted plans to kill innocent people and commit acts of terrorism in US cities to trick the public into supporting a war against Cuba in the early 1960s. Approved in writing by the Pentagon Joint Chiefs, Operation Northwoods even proposed blowing up a US ship and hijacking planes as a false pretext for war. Also at this link are directions for accessing these astonishing declassified documents on the website of the US National Archives and Records Administration. These released documents clearly demonstrate that our military leaders feel justified for reasons of "national security" not only in lying to the public, but even in sacrificing the lives of our own citizens in order to promote their war agenda.
