Political Analysis - Will The Real Evil-Doers Please Stand Up? The War On Terror - 01/29/13
Jan 29th, 2013 by progressiveradionetwork at 5:00 pm

On this, the 11th anniversary of George W. Bush's Axis of Evil speech, Sandy LeonVest talks to author and investigative journalist David Lindorff about the ominous and prophetic nature of that speech, delivered on January 29, 2002 by then-president George W. Bush. They  discuss the endless nature of the war on terror, and the ways in which it has been ratcheted up and become "even more evil" under the Obama administration.

Eleven years ago to the day, when Bush delivered what was his second State of the Union address, it signaled the beginning of a relentless crusade by the US government against so-called “Islamic terrorists," known as the "war on terror." That crusade was destined to change the world – at least as most Americans understood it – fundamentally and irrevocably.

David Lindorff is the author of many books, including The Case for Impeachment, in which he lays out a legal case for why the Bush/Cheney administration should have been impeached. His work can be found at www.thiscantbehappening.net, as well as at http://www.eurasiareview.com/author/dave-lindorff/.

Today, Dave is working on another book -- which might reasonably be titled, "The Case for Impeachment II -- How Obama Managed to Out-Evil George W. Bush."
