I just came over this one hour documentary at YouTube. It has some interesting interviews (see full list of persons below). Zbigniew Brzezinski gets eight minutes on his role in Afghanistan in the late 1970s.

Part 1 of 7:

Go here to watch part 2-7:

OUR OWN PRIVATE BIN LADEN is a film about understanding the creation of the persona of Osama bin Laden as a phenomenon of the interplay between history, politics, global economics and the media. The film highlights the historical background that led to the fatal link between post-Cold War politics and the emergence of new forms of terrorism that succeeded in establishing their own economy. It traces the connection between privatization, deregulation and free market and the globalization of terrorism.
OUR OWN PRIVATE BIN LADEN examines the complicity between economic structures of "terror" and "the war on terror," their interdependencies, and the creation of the Bin Laden industry as a consequence.

The film explains why the world after September 11, 2001 is less the result of a stray act of terror but the consequence of a series of fatal decisions made from 1945 onwards.

Named Best Foreign Documentary and Best Film of the Festival at the inaugural European Independent Film Festival in Paris, Samira Goetschel's consuming work achieves the brilliance of Michael Moore with a great degree of dignity and restraint. By sheer determination, she collected a trove of high-caliber interviews with eminent investigative journalists and political figures such as Cold War-era CIA director Stansfield Turner, former national security advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski, Pakistani ex-prime minister Benazir Bhutto and the world's leading "public intellectual” Noam Chomsky.

Google Video.

We need to get this thing on Google Video so we can view it in its entirety. Also to more easily spread the information in a more easily digestible format. Thanks for the post and great information. Peace.

It's a decent primer

for people who have never heard of Operation Cyclone or BCCI.

Obviously it argues for blowback on 9/11. But I think it's good for offering people some context for understanding US government support for terrorism.

Good film

thanks for posting it. I agree with Simuvac's comments above. Another good film in this same vien is by the BBC (meh) called "The Power Of Nightmares", look it up on google vids.

Physics/Science/Mathematics do not lie, only people do.
9/11 was an INSIDE JOB
