The Empire Files: ‘This Ship is Sinking’ Says Former Bush Official

category international | anti-war / imperialism | other press author Sunday August 28, 2016 22:59author by 1 of Indymedia Report this post to the editors

For those still naive about nature of the US state and it's foreign policy and the sinister and corrupting role of corporate power then this interview of U.S. Army Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson who served at the very top of the US war machine should leave them under no further illusions after listening to him.

Abby Martin interviews retired U.S. Army Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, former national security advisor to the Reagan administration, who spent years as an assistant to Secretary of State Colin Powell during both Bush administrations. Today, he is honest about the unfixable corruption inside the establishment and the corporate interests driving foreign policy.

Hear a rare insider's view of what interests are behind U.S. wars, the manipulation of intelligence, the intertwining of the military and corporate world, and why the U.S. Empire is doomed.

This video was posted on the Saker blog and he writes:

U.S. Army Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson (Ret.) is the perfect example of what I call the “Old Anglo Guard”, i.e. the product of the pre-Neocon US Anglo imperialist culture. He completely fails to see how “his people” gave birth, so to speak, to the Neocon takeover of the USA. Still, he clearly hurts at the sight of his country, which he also sees as an Empire, going on its last leg. That pain makes him reveal a lot of things which he would never have said in any other circumstances. An interesting interview indeed.
