Dear Dr. Kareem...

"The Power of Nightmares" documentary was stopped from airing on PBS in the United States. I dont think that should be a shock. Anything anyone says or does that isn't considered to be one hundred percent in support of the honesty or sympathy of the U.S., is attacked. Either not credible or unpatriotic.

A lot of people in the U.S. feel the same way. So, its not some far out theory. I'm sure most of the U.S. supporters on here wouldn't want to see something like that aired on TV anyway.

The documentary is really good and full of useful information if anyone is interested in why things are the way they are now. It is obviously up to the interpreter, but i think it helps to have some facts.

I honestly think those who know why they support the U.S. foreign policy would have no issue or be at all offended. It's good, I encourage those interested in knowing more to watch the three parts, you can always turn it off. It's fifty years in three hours, use judgment.

The Power of Nightmares - Part 1-3

"Baby It's Cold Outside"

In the past our politicians offered us dreams of a better world. Now they promise to protect us from nightmares.

The most frightening of these is the threat of an international terror network. But just as the dreams were not true, neither are these nightmares.

I just got through looking at Part I on that site

This BBC segment is a well written exposition of how the war on terror developed out of long term policies of right wing U. S. intervention in the Middle East, policies based on Christian fundamentalist doctrine.
