Oliver Stone DEFENDS Biden on Afghanistan withdrawal, says War on Terror based on imperialism & emotionalism (E1049)
On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Academy Award-winning writer and director Oliver Stone. He discusses and reflects on the 9/11 attacks 20 years on, from the heroism of the first responders to the rush to go to war by the Bush administration, the reasons why 9/11 happened and how they were ignored by Americans, the War on Terror and US imperialism, why he defends President Joe Biden’s withdrawal from Afghanistan and opposes the hysteria from the media over the withdrawal, the Wall Street crash of 2008, and much more! Finally, we speak to Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, former chief of staff to US Secretary of State Colin Powell. He discusses 9/11, including the initial reaction to the attacks, how fear and rage drove the Bush administration’s response, the military-industrial complex and its desire for endless war which in part fueled the expansion of NATO, how the US military sabotaged Joe Biden’s withdrawal from Afghanistan and made it look chaotic, how 9/11 can be laid at the feet of Saudi Arabia which he considers the biggest state sponsor of terrorism, Biden’s executive orders to declassify 9/11 documents, and much more.
