On this edition of Film, Literature and the New World Order James Perloff, author of The Shadows of Power and Truth Is A Lonely Warrior, joins us to discuss the 1970 Hollywood/Japanese production, Tora, Tora Tora! We discuss Perloff’s recent article on the Pearl Harbor deception, “Pearl Harbor: Roosevelt’s 9/11″ and the pieces of the Pearl Harbor puzzle that the movie leaves out. We get into the details of where the movie came from and how it paints Pearl Harbor as a tragic accident rather than a devious deception.

Best part, from a Vanity Fair quote:
It’s known that the Armed Forces objected to 13 Days, which was about the 1962 Cuban Missile crisis, and withheld cooperation. They were incensed by the depiction of the late General Curtis LeMay, who clashed with President John F. Kennedy and Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, feeling they were too “soft.” LeMay later described the incident, which Kennedy’s deft handling of probably prevented the deaths of millions, as “the greatest defeat in our history.”
13 Days is an excellent film that I haven’t reviewed here. It should be required viewing.
And shit, my novel HELL OF A DEAL takes on these topics in a frontal assault.

Hollywood producers have signaled a potential blackballing of actress Penelope Cruz and her husband, actor Javier Bardem, after the Spanish couple criticized Israel for its offensive on Gaza.
In July, Bardem and Cruz signed an open letter decrying the“the genocide perpetrated by the Israeli occupation army.”
The letter blames the latest bloodshed on the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories.
Of course it IS genocide…
