James Steele: America’s mystery man in Iraq – video

 

A 15-month investigation by the Guardian and BBC Arabic reveals how retired US colonel James Steele, a veteran of American proxy wars in El Salvador and Nicaragua, played a key role in training and overseeing US-funded special police commandos who ran a network of torture centres in Iraq. Another special forces veteran, Colonel James Coffman, worked with Steele and reported directly to General David Petraeus, who had been sent into Iraq to organise the Iraqi security services

Showtime is airing Oliver Stone’s Untold History, a work much like Howard Zinn’s People’s History of the United States.  Stone sets out to set the record straight, and Showtime has given him a platform to do so.

The first episode concerns WW2 and the atomic bomb.  It is available on the web:

I can’t let Oliver Stone gloss over the Pearl Harbor incident without saying something.  The US intelligence knew exactly that the target was Pearl Harbor, and a decision was made to allow the attacks to happen, so as to sacrifice the base in order to get the USA into the war.  This is undeniable, and has been the highly controversial reality of the matter for quite some time.
