In the last few months, the BBC showed The Power of Nightmares, a 3-part 
documentary on the 
relation between al Qaeda and the US neoconservatives.

Both groups are fundementalists in strong reactions against liberal secular 
Both have discovered that they need to shock their populations, which is why 
both groups are 
using political terror against their own populations.

Both of these fundementalist groups have now become dependant on each other, 
using each 
other to terrify their own populations.

This documentary ties together some 20-30 years of American politics. It shows 
how the 
neocons came out of an obscure beginning and how they developed in reaction to 
other events. 
It explains why the neocons have gotten into a dark alliance with the Christian 

The documentary makes it clear why the neocons started a jihad against Clinton, 
massive lies (Whitewater, etc.) and impeachment in order to destroy the White 
House. There 
was a purpose to their actions.

It also shows why they used every means possible, incl. massive vote fraud, to 
seize the 
presidential elections for Bush and why the USA just hasn't seemed to capture 
bin Laden. W 
Bush is not the president of the USA. He is merely a handpuppet. The real power 
is Rumsfeld, 
Cheney, Wolfowitz, Perle, and others.

Someone transcribed the broadcasts and it can be read at

I've copied the transcription and made single Word document out of it (22 
pages). If you 
prefer that, let me and I'll either email it to you or post it to a webpage.
