Chris Hedges, veteran NYT foreign correspondent for 20 years, was also our finest Middle East correspondent. Unlike most others, he spoke fluent Arabic. But when he came out against the lead up to the Iraq war in 2002 because he knew this war would end in disaster, this was the end of his career as a top national journalist. Since leaving the NYT he hasn't had a dependable salary on which to raise his family. Chris is also a Presbyterian minister and a great humanitarian.
In his Youtube, he points out that only when the American public collectively goes up against a war, will the Washington war lords stop their heinous drive to build, order, buy and sell military implements with which to forge ever new wars based on falsified information which the American public believes to be true. How many times do we need to be fooled before we collectively go up against this travesty?
