Not in My Name...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: John Pilger - The War You Don't See  [DVD] (DVD)
My teenaged daughter stayed up watching 'The War You Don't See' on ITV the other night. By the end of it, she was inconsolable and blubbing and I wasn't far behind. What could I possibly say to her to make it alright - it isn't alright and never has been...
John Pilger once again does the general public a huge service by showing us the unvarnished realities of war and the political (not to mention commercial) agendas lurking behind them. Even more hard-hitting are the sheepish testimonies of various news anchormen and respected journalists who now admit they were duped about Iraq and led by the nose. Having cut his journalistic teeth in the Vietnam War and consistently covered troublespots ever since, there is no reason to doubt him. Somehow Pilger has retained his perspective and independence, where others succumbed to government bullying and the propoganda machine.
How appropriate then, that it should be John Pilger who gives fellow Australian and whistleblower Julian Assange (of Wikileaks fame/infamy, depending on your political leanings) a helping hand in difficult times. Assange is none of the things you have been led to believe, but best to watch the documentary and find out for yourselves.
If Amazon will let you pay for it, of course...

There is a good dvd you can buy or see free, like many others on youtube called 'The Ripple Effect' its about the inside job on the London 7/7 bombing's.Appalling people who set up patsie's then where shot dead by security forces before they could tell there tale.All to fuel the war in Afghanistan, and rubbish the anti-war movement.

I tried that on YT, but accidentally typed in "The Tipple Effect". A few sherries later, I was believing any old crap and had an uncontrollable desire to put apostrophes in the wrong place where no intelligent person normally would. Hic!
