The Secret Government

via A Tiny Revolution, this fantastic documentary by Bill Moyers dates from the end of the Reagan Administration. If you can spare 90 minutes, you'll get to see classic craziness from Ollie North, whose existence outside of a jail cell continues to mystify me. Also, John Kerry makes a guest appearance.

One thing I don't think Americans have really grappled with is that so long as America is a world power, with interests from pole to pole and from Ghana to Midway, it is inevitably going to have dictators-in-waiting like Reagan or Bush. If you've got overseas interests, you've got threats.
