Scary and thought provoking
13 October 2003 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

If this documentary is totally accurate (I assume most aren't), then the truth behind US intelligence and foreign policy is far more sinister than even I thought possible. I can only pray that as many Americans as possible see this, so that they can realize that every enemy USA have had after WW2 have been by their own creation. The American power apparatus is not fighting external threats - it is fighting itself.

There are some truly tragic people interviewed in this documentary. They look like living dead, like the entire burden of the future of the world has been put upon their shoulders, only because they have walked through the halls of power a good few too many times. Disturbingly, for some of these people, the future of the world is indeed resting on their shoulders, but they appear too busy fighting imaginary enemies and pursuing their own selfish interests to do anything about it.

The documentary shows that with every action taken by the powers that be 'for the safety of the people', the less safe the people become. Obviously, brainwashed by bureacracy, power and the hunger for money they don't realize that (and only a miracle can change that), but for us mere mortals, it is a valuable contribution and a bit of an eye-opener. Watch at your first opportunity, especially Americans. Just don't dismiss it because it's French! 5/5
