This is an opportunity for you to recover more of your country's real history instead of the patriotic pablum you are fed daily by corporate media and schools. You will learn from someone who during the Vietnam War was a military analyst employed by the Empire's military research tank known as the RAND Corporation. During this segment you will learn specifically about how US planners manufactured an incident in order to deceive the American public and declared war against (North) Vietnam.
After learning of so many lies being told to the public, he became a whistleblower by releasing The Pentagon Papers which revealed the true war policies of our masters. (Should you wish to order the Papers, I strongly advise you to order v. 2 of the Senator Gravel edition published by Beacon Press. As a part of a damage control effort, the NY Times flooded the market with a distorted edition of the Papers.)
MintPress News is proud to host “Lied to Death,” a 13-part audio conversation between famed whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg and social justice activist Arn Menconi.
Menconi wrote that these interviews are a “mixture of historical, political science and Dan’s sixty-year scholarly analysis as a former nuclear planner for Rand Corporation.”
For more information on the interview and Ellsberg, see the introduction to this series.
