War Made Easy: The Lies They've Told Us Aren't New

War Made Easy: How Presidents and Pundits keep spinning us to death

War Made Easy reaches back into the Cultural Amnesia of the USA to expose a 50-year pattern of government deception and media spin that has dragged the United States into one war after another from Vietnam to Iraq.

Narrated by actor and activist Sean Penn, the film exhumes remarkable archival footage of official distortion and exaggeration from LBJ to George W Bush, revealing in stunning detail how the American news media have uncritically disseminated the pro-war messages of successive presidential administrations.

Also, Sen. Wayne Morse (D-OR in the 1960's) is my new favorite Senator.

This is a great film.
Be sure to watch it, and share with your friends.
