Fascinating info from Glenn Greenwald

We get so much non-information and misinformation from the BBC and the corporate media that it's a delight to get hard news about current reality. Glenn Greenwald has referred us to an article in the New York Times dated 6 September revealing some of what the US is up to in arming "rebels" in Syria. Here is the link:

The WikiLeaks Files: The World According to US Empire

I recently received a tweet about this volume. The WikiLeaks Files presents expert analysis on the most important cables and outlines their historical importance. In a series of chapters dedicated to the various regions of the world, the book explores the machinations of the United States as it imposes its agenda on other nations: a new form of imperialism founded on varied tactics from torture to military action, to trade deals and “soft power” in the perpetual pursuit of expanding influence. It illustrates the close relationship between government and big business in promoting US trade.

I've ordered this book from my (Brighton and Hove) public library. I urge my readers to do the same. It should be a fascinating and informative read.
