Breaking The Silence - Truth and Lies in the War on Terror (HQ Copy) by John Pilger John Pilger dissects the truth and lies in the _war on terror_. Award-winning journalist John Pilger investigates the discrepancies between American and British claims for the _war on terror_ and the facts on the ground as he finds them in Afghanistan and Washington, DC. In 2001, as the bombs began to drop, George W. Bush promised Afghanistan _the generosity of America and its allies_. Now, the familiar old warlords are regaining power, religious fundamentalism is renewing its grip and military skirmishes continue routinely. In _liberated_ Afghanistan, America has its military base and pipeline access, while the people have the warlords who are, says one woman, _in many ways worse than the Taliban_. In Washington, Pilger conducts a series of remarkable interviews with William Kristol, editor of The Weekly Standard, and leading Administration officials such as Douglas Feith, Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, and John Bolton, Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security.
