Stopping the U.S. War Juggernaut

“We’re knee deep in the big muddy” and 9 years after Sept. 11, 2001
the Obama administration says to “push on,” expanding war into
Pakistan and saber rattling against Iran. In Afghanistan we mark the
1,000 U.S. combatant death added to the countless deaths of Afghan
civilians and the U.S. Senate has just voted to add another $30 billion
to the Afghanistan War budget to pay for 30,000 more troops to add
to the 65,000 already in Afghanistan. Building Bridges presents a
montage of sound from “Why Are We In Afghanistan?”, “Rethink
Afghanistan” and the “The Most Dangerous Man in American” – a
riveting, straight-ahead, enthralling story of one man's moral courage,
Daniel Ellsberg. Ellsberg, the high-level Pentagon official and
Vietnam War strategist, pierced the world of government secrecy by
leaking 7,000 pages of top secret documents to the press revealing
a war based on decades of lies and deceit, & in doing so helped bring
about the resignation of a President and the end of the Vietnam War.
