The Art of Mental Warfare Presents: Nine Inch Nails' "The Warning" [VIDEO]

This post, written by Cliff Schecter, originally appeared on Cliff Schecter's Brave New Films Blog

Let me start by saying I don't endorse everything in this video. I don't tend to buy into the World Bank/Brookings/CFR conspiracy theories for one. And two, while I understand, as Republicans can't allow themselves to do, that 9/11 was partially the result of blowback, it was also the result of a murderous mind and religious zealotry.

Bin Laden would have been attacking innocent people anyhow, unless we were willing to give him back Southern Spain, Sicily, Turkey, etc. and so forth all to be ruled by the Caliphate. He's nuts, and he's a murderer.

But this video is very well done and raises important questions about our administration and our involvement in Iraq, and makes important points. The filmmaker talks about "diversions," using some of our Fox Porn footage to make the point, which as we know, is exactly the kind of diversion those on the right want to provide while they foment war.

Watch it. (Btw, if you have a weak stomach beware, there is graphic war footage).
