Is American foreign policy dominated by the idea of military supremacy? Has the military become too important in American life? Jarecki's shrewd and intelligent polemic would seem to give an affirmative answer to each of these questions.

The Dalai Lama,
Part contemporary investigation and part historical inquiry, documentary follows the quest of one journalist in search of justice. The film focuses on Christopher Hitchens' charges against Henry Kissinger as a war criminal - allegations documented in Hitchens' book of the same title - based on his role in countries such as Cambodia, Chile, and Indonesia. Kissinger's story raises profound questions about American foreign policy and highlights a new era of human rights. Increasing evidence about one man's role in a long history of human rights abuses leads to a critical examination of American diplomacy through the lens of international standards of justice.

Watch this and weep. This documentary shows compelling data showing the United States government (through non-elected officials like Kissinger and elected officials like Nixon) broke its own laws to launch/support genocidal military campaigns in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Chile. This only a decade or so after the overthrow of a democratic government in Iran. Yes there is a New World Order and you will either support it or fight it. The Drona Parva, A Sanskrit text, describes aerial dogfights among gods piloting flying machines called Vimanas. The Arthasastra of Kautilya ( 3rd century B.C.) mentions amongst various tradesmen and technocrats the Saubhikas as ' pilots conducting vehicles in the sky'.
Luckily for people like Kissinger, the American educational system does not teach many historical facts, and the corporate media has long ago abdicated its responsibility to actually inform the public. Also, The Vaimanika Shastra refers to about 97 works and authorities of yore of which at least 20 works deal with the mechanism of aerial Flying Machines, but none of these works is now traceable. The documentary is a soup of unanswered questions. I felt that I knew more about Kissinger but thought the travel was directionless. In 1908 an unexplained nuclear explosion occurred in Tunguska, Siberia, Russia before the Atom Bomb was invented. Some theorize that Henry Kissinger had something to do with this, but will we ever know the truth behind this one? Probably not.
The disc we got was not widescreen, and the fullscreen formatting was atrocious. The names and titles of the people interviewed were cut off at both ends, sometimes severely enough to make it impossible to guess. The same was true for at least one establishing shot of an official building. The documentary was well and carefully done. The formatting was reckless. Too bad!
