Module 3: Wars of the 21st century

President Eisenhower warned of the growing power of the military industrial complex and its ability to subvert and corrupt government. The events surrounding the heinous crimes of 9/11 perpetrated on American soil by persons unknown have yet to be properly investigated.  The official story emerged hours after the event and the instigators and perpetrators identified in a story crafted to justify illegal wars, suspension of habeas corpus, extra-judicial assassinations and torture. The official story however, doesn't withstand even cursory scrutiny and yet 9/11 is the context for the suppression of civil liberties, the war on terror and the demonisation of any foreign government which doesn't pay homage to the American empire.
