Nick Turse, author of The Complex: How the Military Invades Our Everyday Lives, discusses how today’s military-industrial complex far exceeds the one Eisenhower warned of, the Pentagon’s influence in Hollywood that often includes vetting rights on movie scripts in exchange for access to taxpayer funded weapons of war, the early-and-often bombardment of young people with military propaganda, why far too many businesses and workers are reliant on Pentagon spending and the five jaw-dropping and under-reported WikiLeaks stories.

  1. Great to hear from Nick Turse! Will certainly be looking out for more of his work from now on. Many thanks.

  2. [...] This post was mentioned on Twitter by WikiLeaks, AngelaKeaton, OurManInAbiko, Steve Franklin, Joe Thorpe and others. Joe Thorpe said: Nick Turse speaking on our US Marines 20-country invasion predictions http://antiwar.com/radio/2010/09/13/nick-turse-3/ #wikileaks [...]

  3. [...] Debating on this is pointless: “Nick Turse speaking on our US Marines 20-country invasion predictions http://antiwar.com/radio/2010/09/13/nick-turse-3/“ [...]

  5. I don't care if he raped a bus load of nuns twice, Assange is my hero!

  6. 19:38 "…some people even say they must be CIA…" Wikileaks woudn't have to be a CIA op to be doing sinister work. E.g. that neighbor of yours…you know the one…He bought both invasion/occupations, and (even though his drafts weren't coming from them) duct taped his windows in response to a 'threat level'… Now he has a source more 'authoritative' than Hannity. Either now, or very soon, he can begin to cherrypick tortured disinfo boiled out of Uzbek peasants like a Real Neocon!
    What you are about to do with that image in mind, don't do it on the rug.

  7. "I Like it…. Not sure I know what it means, but "sinister"..??? I jus don get how publishin the facts can be that…!!! Guess I am one bottle of wine past clear understanding.. persnipoles is my kind of guy, and a quick check of his comments confirms.. Thank you for paying attention to Uzbeckistan where the worst kind of exploitation has taken root and metastasizesized into a fatal condition…!!!!!

  8. One more comment on this topic and these comments too…. Now that "our " hope"…Pres. "O" has turned out to be more hype than hope….. let me offer Senior Assange as our "New" Hope..!! Truthtellers are our ONLY [HOPE, as reportage becomes a comody to b0e bought and sold like Pork Bellies…!!!

  9. I dont know about Wikileaks yet, there is something that is bothering me about them.
    Wait and see if they start leaking something negative from the "enemies" of the western power elite,
    then it is a done deal. I mean,hey,it is Wikileaks,you know,the heroes that leaked 90000 documents from Pentagon,so if they leak this or that from [any "rogue" state],then it must be true!!!

  10. Life sucks without Anti-War Radio. :( (((( Scott, come back soon and bring Scott Ritter with you!
