Rush to War - Abu Ghraib

Posted on: October 28, 2004 | Views: 59 | Comment

This is a clip of Senate committee questioning Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and General Mayers on delaying the press release of the Abu Ghraib pictures.

On September 11, 2001, America watched in horror as people died and the WTC fell in New York City. Since that day, many citizens have continued to watch in horror as our troops have died overseas, prisoners have been tortured in our name and our civil liberties have been violated. Filmmaker Robert Taicher's assembled news footage and interviews with journalists, Middle East experts and military men shows a president determined to subjugate our freedoms for our lusts: an unquenchable thirst for oil, imperialistic tendencies and a need for security and comfort at all costs. Some of the assembled: Ambassador Joseph Wilson, Noam Chomsky, Father Daniel Berrigan, Molly Ivins, George S. McGovern, General Anthony Zinni and many more.
