Above is the fifth part of an award winning documentary Power of Nightmares. The six part series neatly outlines the history of the neoconservative movement that helped to create our current Reform-Conservative government under Stephen Harper.
A growing 'Truth' movement has been slowly unravelling just what happened on 9/11 and the resulting Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
And as many people now realize, the War on Terror is against a phantom enemy. And the same people who fabricated the Soviet threat, engineered this latest horror.
It gave the neoconservative movement a huge boost.
But what it has also done, is sparked an idea in the minds of young Islam men, that America is truly evil, and it may now be up to them to eradicate an enemy that not only threatens their nations, but also their religion.
But where will this battle between phantom "Good and Evil" forces end?
Will we in the West see the destructive nature of the neconservatives, fuelled by the Religious Right; and seek a peaceful end to a struggle that emerged from the minds of mortals?
I hope so, because far too many innocent people have been killed for an ideology based on fraud.
Osama Bin Laden died in December of 2001, going to his grave denying any involvement in the attacks. He only gave money to small groups of militants who plotted the overthrow of governments in the Arab world. They were not organized. At least not organized in the way that they were portrayed.
Al Qaeda never existed. It was a phantom, and I think it's time we quit chasing ghosts.
