there were 5 months in a world war one both sides were in trenches they were just mass slaughter across the landscape men were standing up sleeping they were in their own feces and their dead comrades were sitting there no man's land they couldn't even get them and bring them back for burial. it was christmas eve and a german high command sent little christmas trees it was like a stage set all of a sudden across the german front you saw these little christmas trees lighting up and then the allies heard silent night being sung by the germans and started applauding. and then all of a son a couple of guys on both sides get out of the trenches and start walking toward each other. and expected any moment to pull back it's a machine gun zipping up and. and within 2 hours we were walking about and often talking and it was nothing like. hundreds get out of the trenches
3:09 pm
then thousands get out of the trenches and they embraced each other $100000.00 men . no man stands phosphoric see as graeme attack that the west memphis talk shaking hands exchanging names addresses after the war wrecked one another. about it back in your trenches you know jumped the generals b. i must've seen it and got a bit suspicious so what they did they gave all of those for about 3 of guns behind us to file an offer shish so i had their revolvers but the japanese you know was not stopping their water again or we were christian i'm told.
3:10 pm
this was a war to end all wars. this was a war to make the world safe for democracy. at least $21000.00 new millionaires were made in the us millions and billions of dollars would be piled up a few. in mission makers shipbuilders meatpackers. and let us not forget the bankers who finance the great war. to turn blood into gold. and their profits were secret as they were. all of them are looking ahead to war. i stand before you tonight in my red star chiffon evening god.
3:11 pm
base softly made up by fair haired gen. with. this extraordinary deal between the united kingdom and saudi arabia in which ronald reagan wanted to sell the saudis billions and billions dollars worth of equipment but these radios stopped it and congress wouldn't approve it because they feared the saudi would strengthen israel. handed the deal of the effectively to his political soulmate margaret sacha un soon not. very effective.
3:12 pm
when. the saudi arms. deal we really started to stumble on a central feature of british politics over the last 30 years. has been at the heart of many of the great. i was always pleased to see him when i was prime minister because he brought sure. she considers saudi arabia as a strong friend and would be willing to support taking them with whatever the kingdom needs and of discussion from there on everything else was. he explained to mrs thatcher this was a deal with saudi arabia and therefore things were done differently. they
3:13 pm
wanted $43000000000.00 worth of weaponry that was $6000000000.00 in commission. the false majority what most people understand as bribes. we'll continue to work together against the terrorists who threaten the way of life of pacifists. one day i thought right and it was a man to look at it coming i'm actually he said i've been working for a travel company and we had a kind of slush fund we used to distribute to saudis and other arabs when they came to britain for be all to help the path of alms deals along. and he told the sex workers stories that when saudi military officers would come along he would present them with canteens of cut through that was something that they liked another thing they liked was girls so he would take about the town and
3:14 pm
get them girls. to be honest it seemed like quite small being here payments made some of them from rather on as manic activities and in chips david talks about cooldowns that sort of thing there's only 2 things that count in business my friend money and sex the rest you can write as much as you like is absolute garbage you can measure weapon beautiful the president's secretary. because they're more destructive you just take it to the what the hell you are talking about. and that is sometimes all that is you need. to use an escort agency called launches because of the specialties of the chief of staff of the army like blankets or because. we had their secretary of the embassy come and review the photos she said i want this one i want this one i win this one
3:15 pm
i win this one i had the girls i arrived one day before and i said you're old i know you will be paid handsomely for this but do me a favor if you get any people thought that is relevant please bring your cross because i could use it and for each interesting information i will give another 2000 euro bonus so with 60 grand i signed the contract with 3000000 so it wasn't ideal. m m i phone rang again. it was another whistle and he said you have no idea what it is that you're getting into here. and he said this slush fund is much much bigger than you realize our job was to look after the really high level people those who used to come to england who were being bribed essentially by be a people of the level of the head of the saudi air force who was a royal prince. we would fly the 2 of us angelica's and they would buy cars dresses and it wasn't shopping like you would i would think in the end when they gather
3:16 pm
together all the shopping we would charge an entire jumbo jet to fly it all back to saudi arabia it was in the attempt to try and trace through the bank accounts who the ultimate beneficiaries saw that the case became really very serious is the trail appeared to lead towards senior members of society royal family. the most outrageous example was that maybe 80 i don't want it to go that way with prince bandar at one point i made him a present of a huge commercial airline had all of his very. which he promptly have painted in the gray and silver colors of the dallas cowboys who were his favorite american team i mean is the fly around in that quite cheerfully. case centered on establishing the ultimate beneficiary of exceptionally knowledge amounts of money paid by big sherry spaces for consultancy said
3:17 pm
decisions. there's evidence that mark fashion this is that your son got 12000000 in cash for his work as a fixer. this is a start and i know. this is who know what it is really beautiful up and it's also amazing if you want to sell on the market and you're looking probably about 3500 euros and why you keep it in the house because it was all her and you can do that legally. yes and no but you know more or less you care as long as it's in the house. it is oh sure the shot of the neighbor . i don't know the us money i don't mind paying bribes to politicians it's part of the deal the thing about politicians is that they're very much like prostitutes but
3:18 pm
only more expensive. polities is it dated by the whims of the arms industry politicians are nothing more than sales reps by their friends that have as much power as a middle ranking executive and want to martin ident of the day they do with the tolls. when an executive goes to bribe a foreign official he says to himself look i've taken a lot of risk to take this $5000000.00 that i'm paying to the prime minister of x.y.z. who makes an arrangement with prime minister of x.y.z. . i'll hand over the 5000000 could you take half of that 5000000 and you send it to the following bank account in churchill and wilshere in the floor. the 1st time an executive does that and he collects $2500000.00 he says wow this is
3:19 pm
a good business to be and within moments of that realisation he is no no longer in the business of selling airplanes he's in the business of selling bribes and he is now scouring the world for somebody to find to bribe. its. head to feed. it it can. chew through it. i. had to do. them see what it's from. this is out example. i play. each child. each kisses. on foot by.
3:20 pm
8. with. a megaphone running jep. this was somebody who said you have no idea what you're getting into he said this whole be a thing is much much bigger it goes right to the very top what he had was something that you never see as a journalist swiss bank records of international cover payments going all over the world he showed me how be a set of a whole system with lloyds bank under which they channeled secret payments into a british virgin islands offshore company called red diamond from red diamond the money went into this guy swiss bank account and he then used it to distribute to the local politicians taking a big chunk of himself of course we don't i can assure you we don't we and i believe most companies all to the business of labor's policy as you suggest above sums up what they do employees of government it is just the way the business is
3:21 pm
done. we were actually able to publish what was the most dangerous story the prince bandar had been given not just the plane but over the years a total of 1000000000 pounds we did not invent. corruption i mean i mean he would have been and they had hanky panky and they had to go down to ed so i mean this is this is human nature i salute you prince of state run and a friend. how do you screen. of course none of us are greedy it's only the other family's grief. this the world runs on individuals pursuing their self-interest. all those people who believe that greed violence etc these primal so-called primal instincts other religions things and everything else is a social construction they've lost their mind and for the last 50 years at least
3:22 pm
policy has been made based on the assumption of greed and it's ruined the world. every. path generates believe there is new nature of society so you have to nurture individual is i don't accept that at all i think there are very many good public policy initiatives for creating society. in the beirut they're saying allude to you. there's a committee is in a k $47.00 kalashnikov. a society that decides that the bulk of its budget is going to go to arms manufacturing building of a military eccentric the have made a moral decision that militarism is more important then the creation of wellbeing for the population. this is not the world i want to live in i want to live in the real world and the real world is peopled by real emotions including love and generosity. my god if you want is
3:23 pm
freedom the freedom of human beings of individuals to pursue their own set yes i think what they term freedom means is economic license and economic license and those who control property and those who control capital has in fact been a threat not only to equality but a threat to the freedom of peoples all over the world and not only in europe and the united states but nafta in asia and in latin america i want you to name me any society in which you have any large measure of that freedom where capitalism and free enterprise has not been the predominant mechanism of the free enterprise system has spread through the force of all and send those on through wielded by governments that was government intervention under the name of the free enterprise system but a government intervention which destroyed the freedoms of many people not least of which of the people of chile.

3:33 pm
the joint hearings of the house elect committee to investigate covert arms
3:34 pm
transaction with iran. and the select committee on secret military assistance to iran in the nicaraguan opposition will come to order congress began to address what they perceive to be an insanely out of control series of covert actions with little to no congressional oversight we have been supplying lethal weapons to terrorist nation involving the us government in military activities in direct contravention of the law and lying to the congress now i believe that democracy cannot survive that kind of abuse. and people like dick cheney and donald rumsfeld who are relatively new to government at the time did not like when congress said we need to step in and confront the national security state and what's become a very out of control kill program cheney then went on during the reagan years in the eighty's to serve in congress and when the iran contra scandal broke out into
3:35 pm
the open cheney did not like congress being involved with anything that the executive branch was doing. and you had this is utter scandal that emanated from the highest echelons of power and the reagan administration was acting as though it had nothing to do with it i've told you all that i know and you know the truth of the matter is for quite some long time all that you knew is what i told you to. do with. our witnesses morning is mr robert mcfarlane the former national security adviser to the president. mr mcfarlane will you welcome you to the committee and we look forward to your testimony. mr mcfarlane. did you have any discussion about the possibility. of in effect farming out the
3:36 pm
whole contra support operations in nicaragua to another country which will call country run yes that's correct and did you in fact succeed in obtaining money from another country. which we'll call country toe. that's correct. i had a practice meeting periodic lee who was the official from the country true about assistance we could provide some cases arms sales. and he intended to provide a contribution of a $1000000.00 per months to the contras through the end of the year. you have no problems working with the cia we have no problem working with the united states government and unless the cia does not work for the government then i think we have a bigger problem there are many cases where some americans are question that you
3:37 pm
know well thank heavens. not in connection with. i think that there was a substantial shadow government trying to run for if they actually united states. these events have been characterized by some pretty strong statements we've heard talk of a grave constitutional crisis and even been treated to talk about a coup in the white house not only does cheney sort of defend iran contra but he argues that iran contra is actually a model for how the u.s. should be conducting its national security policy he is a radical subscriber to this notion of the unitary executive effectively what you're doing is saying on certain parts of american policy we don't have a democracy we have a dictatorship. as a matter of fact i was. very definitely involved in the decisions about support to
3:38 pm
the freedom fighters my idea to begin with. in my opinion there is no justification for further restrictions on the power and flexibility of future presidents. the national security leak today is mostly composed of people who hit the revolving door multiple times during their last nomination of richard b. cheney to be secretary of the friends is they make a name for themselves in the private industry and then they come into the go. this revolving door keeps the national security leak very small and very wealthy. and increasing its wealth as it goes up the chain to the extent that then when you get to the top as cheney did then you can become a member of the plutocracy that runs the country to this is an impressive crowd the haves and the have more. money commissioned
3:39 pm
a study by halliburton to find out how much more of the defense department could be privatized proud to serve our troops palaver was he laid to get this $1000000.00 contract and of course returned a verdict that oh mr secretary lots more of it can be privatized. dick cheney leaves the defense department and goes and heads halliburton himself and he spends the entire 990 s. building up the how important war empire well if we're going to talk about star wars we might as well invite darth vader i. am. happy to accept. when he comes back into power as vice president and then they start hiring halliburton to you know in advance even if u.s. troops going into iraq. snellen equipment was being deployed to the gulf it's hard
3:40 pm
to look at this and not say these guys had a very long term plan for how they were going to increase the powerful infrastructure of private companies. what we've essentially done is to create a network of corporations that have the fire power of small nation states that could you know overthrow some small governments around the world. in essence we in the united states have privatized the ultimate public function war. going on and not want to get on the market right now even obama's of the the time of the like food. you know munitions as good as going through known so by the things you know you do think. it's just.
3:41 pm
you can treat. in iraq that if this feels and i say teens where firing 6000000 dollars within seconds coming back we are me and going up again. there's no hope of any harm because there's always a small kabul of people for more really really good business. it doesn't matter that we're losing the war in afghanistan albertan could care less it's good for them good for profit. i don't mind here in the interim. i don't want this have the words or the.
3:42 pm
bad luck i was told at about 5 really good them off and i know there are your i see a lot. to get to the bit. where we've undergone a corporate coup d'etat in slow motion coke approach at all since all 35000 lobbyists in washington they write the legislation they write the bills. all it takes is one phone call from somebody on the hill to someone in the pentagon saying hey turn on the dogs the hills out to get our program the guys in the senate are on
3:43 pm
board we need you to turn on the gucci shoes guys to straighten this thing out because you shoot guys been the lobbyist. and what this does is just lock the system up and that's the whole name of the game it's it's called political engineering and i'm like political science political engineering is real. one of the most important things dunder stand it essentially creates what we call a self like an ice cream cone. and it's like a perpetual motion machine for getting ever increasing defense budgets the way we do it is by downplaying the future consequences to start a new weapon we over promises performance under promise it's cost we then systematically spread dollars jobs and profits to as many congressional districts as quickly as possible so that everybody has skin in the game. the people who are invested in this state or people like the largest defense contractor in the world lucky more than they will die before they see it going to.
3:44 pm
going to change the world. we're probably already working. what did martin basically do you assume unless you look to push them to goals you know in all branches of the government and to the whole. and this is the group that make them if you will go you've been to school would. fiscal year 9992.3 trillion missing fiscal year 2001 point one trillion missing the pentagon has claimed year after year that the reason it can't account for the money is because its computers don't communicate with each other one trillion $1.00 bills stacked high would reach nearly 68000 miles into space one 3rd of the way to the moon. i got a phone call from the f.b.i. saying that i was a target of
3:45 pm
a death threat. and that's what happens when you go against the big boys who has the contracts today to make those systems communicate with each other and how much have the taxpayers paid for them there are times that corporations do things they should not do in which case they tend to be suspended for some period there are times then that corporations can get out of the penalty box it is you know any was never in the penalty box if you could proceed to my 2nd question please the 2nd question. i forgot what the 2nd question was. in the vigils operating in the shadows and never having their names called are able to leverage the power of the military and the foreign policy apparatus for their own personal pick uni ery in. what's now who's the enemy
3:46 pm
how do we justify. what better our new other me. he can bring to the minus or the len yellow mutinies that's our unity back home by the i don't know 6 toes for me. that i have
3:47 pm
on but i don't know but he decked years he made a mint of a dorian out of the many guys who were no further than your let the analysis. which you see mean this is tony dances and similarly i'm going to see mean you know better you don't know either our foot on the dealer. but i have a nary doubt. when i say we i mean are even they let our money earned to that extent i am in a fabulous i don't mother this delusional must see what i want to see most of us in i live in assist those for me. is a see in me from the mental demand look rumana see see your. get the we and i nak bendin she on the get a 2nd a bit earlier her lack. of
3:48 pm
i think that the most basic level when we realize how we've entered into. a permanent state of war like what often proponents of. counter terrorism on a global scale think of as a long war but a war without end something like that. and i think that what we've accepted is a political regime that is stained by fear is a very old very old political tactic i mean machiavelli asin the prince is it better for the prince to be feared or loved and his conclusion is because the locus of fear the the source of fear resides in him in the prince it can be constant for his rule whereas the locus of love resides in the people it's in their
3:49 pm
power and so for them could be tossed and long lasting means so much already opens a question that he probably doesn't provide us the answer with what would it mean to have our social arrangement like the basis of our social choices. be founded on love. i don't think one has to justify the cost and nature of the national security state one just has to keep the people fearful enough to support it but what i want to bring to your attention today is the potentially much more sinister nexus between iraq and the o. kind of terrorist network. every word in that speech was gone over by the director of central intelligence and his deputy director after so it was nothing that i made up it was nothing that i stuck in there and in fact some people tried to stick extra things in there that the intelligence community wouldn't verify with multi-sourcing and i said no powell grabbed me physically which was unlike him
3:50 pm
and drug me into a space at the cia at langley and said throw all the material in my presentation about terrorism out cut it out out this amount this is just within an hour george tenet the director of central intelligence made a spectacular bombshell presentation we have just learned from a high level al qaida operative under interrogation about significant contacts between baghdad smoot of our ought and al qaeda. this was devastating. here's the director of central intelligence telling the secretary of state that he has interrogated evidence well the secretary turned to me and said put it back in. al qaeda continues to have a deep interest in acquiring weapons of mass destruction as with the story of the
3:51 pm
kawi in his network i can trace the story of a senior terrorist operative telling how iraq provided training in these weapons to al qaeda later i learned that that was shake out libby that had to happen just instantly happened it happened months before that he been water boarded in egypt 20 did this no u.s. personnel were present and he had recanted within a couple of weeks and we never would tell me about that every statement i make today is backed up by sources solid sources these are not assertions we're giving you are facts and conclusions based on solid intelligence we were indisputable we were allowed to. at this hour american and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations to disarm iraq to free and some people and to defend the world from grave danger as karl rove famously said to this reporter you know you guys are reality based communities we make reality by the time you figured out
3:52 pm
