How the Bush Administration Exploited Terror Threats For Political Gain

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Time and time again, George Bush and his cronies have used fear to scare the American people into giving up their civil liberties, believe lies about the the threat posed by Iraq, and dominate the news in the face of any sort of criticism of their policies. Keith Olbermann chronicles the sequence of events from 2002 to 2008 in which the administration, whenever it was criticized, would consistently report new ‘terror threats’ to distract media coverage from these criticisms. It’s sad the safety of the American people is only a political tool in Karl Rove’s playbook, and not something our President really takes seriously. The videos are about 10 minutes in length but they’re worth the watch.
