Terrorism & U.S. Foreign Policy
Program #CHRB-CHRK001. Recorded in Boulder, CO on October 08, 2002.To hear Washington tell it, terrorism happens in a vacuum. "They" attack us because of our freedoms, because our way of life is just so much better. The explanation and remedy sound rather like an indulgent father, "They hate us because we're beautiful. Now you don't worry, just go shopping and we'll bomb the evil doers." Information not carried in the mainstream media paints a different picture. According to a State Department report issued before September 11th, U.S. involvement overseas increases the chances of terrorist attacks. Could Washington's foreign policy and the Bush administration's march toward full spectrum dominance have anything to do with the resentment toward the U.S.?
