Truth-seeking has limitations. He still won't talk about 911 Truth or JFK assassination. He is controlled. Claims they're "unimportant." Unbelievable. How could anything be more important in our history? Everything in recent history derives from them. Like Amy Goodman and Howard Zinn. ...Read more

This has nothing to do with ignoring those issues. This is a documentary from the 1990s, long before Sept 11th happened, so obviously it won't address this.

The whistleblower telling enough of the truth to convince the public that the entire story has come out, in order to keep them pacified and to deter anyone from wanting to investigate further. And omit the most damning part of the ...Read more

Wow- so glad to hear you speak out on that. You're right- he (or Zinn, Hedges, Cornell West, etc) is not that obtuse. He is intimidated. It is, as you suggest, pretty mind-bending though. They seem to go about their day thinking they are pretty righteous, clear-thinking dudes. To be fair, if ...Read more
