That's a kick-ass documentary, one of the absolute best in explaining the modus operandi of criminal organizations, er, I mean the US government, in controlling world events. It should be required watching. Hell, it should be shown in schools IMO.

This book really helped me distill/crystallize my understanding and views as a liberal. I wish even people who disagree with me would watch/read it, just so we share a common frame of reference...
