Glenn Greenwald is one of the best journalists operating in the United States today. The more I read his stuff, the more I am impressed. Unlike most automatons out there in the mainstream media, he is able to call out the “red team” vs. “blue team” wrestling match rhetoric for the nonsense it is. The real battle is the 0.01% oligarchy vs. the rest of humanity. They use the Republican and Democratic sham to divide and conquer the sheeple on “social” or “emotional” issues that distract the masses from the real issues.
In his latest piece, Greenwald blasts the obvious hypocrisy of U.S. foreign policy, particularly related to how our politicians have their heads up the asses of Saudi royalty. They are somehow great partners in the war on terror despite 15 of 19 of the 9/11 hijackers being Saudis. How soon we forget…
