Abby Martin interviews retired U.S. Army Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, former national security advisor to the Reagan administration, who spent years as an assistant to Secretary of State Colin Powell during both Bush administrations. Today, he is honest about the unfixable corruption inside the establishment and the corporate interests driving foreign policy. Hear a rare insider's view of what interests are behind U.S. wars, the manipulation of intelligence, the intertwining of the military and corporate world, and why the U.S. Empire is doomed.
It would take a substantial minority, or even a majority of the people to stand up and say no more. Does that mean revolution? Possibly.It's unfortunate that so many people who have served the Empire only speak critically about its policies after they retire. But then, one must keep in mind that Empire directors are a ruthless lot and they have no compunctions about destroying, either literally or figuratively speaking, the lives of people who rat on them.
