    Hi Margie, You asked how American policies are formulated and perpetuated behind the lines of our glossy fronting about peace and democracy. This is a very good question which I am currently studying by working at a Defense think tank in DC. Many lobbies, think tanks, businessmen, ideologues, and "intellectuals" (many of them quite ignorant and stupid) are working tirelessly behind the scenes to promote their own agendas. Rumsfeld and Cheney have only recently come to be in the limelight, but they have been working behind the scenes for decades. Even under Clinton, while some of the conservative think tanks were driven underground, they continued to work on their next offensive. The Project for the New American Century, the cradle of the Neo-Cons, were actively wishing for a "new Pearl Harbor" in the 90's. The PNAC is composed largely of hardline Zionists who are far to the right of most Israelis. How do these crazy people grab power? And why do they do it? (Continued.)

Operation octogenarian

In 1969, veterans of the Haganah, Irgun and WWII were asked to help defend the northern communities. The media described a giant success, but archives show they were mostly asked to help with the harvest.
