Maureen Farrell: Tired of Being Lied to? Modern History You Can't Afford to Ignore (Part II)

Maureen Farrell: Tired of Being Lied to? Modern History You Can't Afford to Ignore:
'What has become of the American people that they permit the despicable practices of tyrants to be practiced in their name?' former Reagan administration official Paul Craig Roberts recently asked. 'The Bush administration is in violation of the US Constitution, the rule of law, the Geneva Convention, the Nuremberg Standard, and basic humanity. It is a gang of criminals,' he wrote.

Former President Jimmy Carter also voiced concern. 'Everywhere you go, people ask, 'What has happened to the United States of America?' he said, referring to international reaction to America's evolving stance on human rights, the environment and the separation of church and state.

The most striking criticism has come from Bush administration exiles, however. Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, former chief of staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell, recently offered a scathing critique, confirming reports that a 'cabal' led by Vice President Dick Cheney and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld had 'hijacked foreign policy' and that this cabal's 'insular and secret workings' led to 'decision-making one would associate more with a dictatorship than a democracy.'
And people say I'm paranoid when I say such things. It's true, you know, that you're not paranoid when your fears are true.
