The U.S. militaryindustrialcongressional complex has stumbled upon yet another gonzo way to turn huge masses of people against the United States Government — and "we the people," because "we" support it.
Piggy-backed on the chronic collateral murder of innocent men, women and children in foreign lands by illegal — not to mention mistaken and inexact — drone attacks, this one is really impressive:
FERYAL ALI GAUHAR: "…the base for the drones, where they’re housed before they are automated, is in Pakistan…. I just happened to stumble across a contractor-and that’s not the Blackwater contractor-the contractor who built the base… he was there at the time of the flooding… he actually mentioned to me that the River Indus… was breached on the left bank deliberately in order to protect the base, which is on the right bank. And the breaching caused, consequentially, the inundation of an entire district, which resulted in the displacement of millions, not thousands, but millions, because we have 170 million people in the country, and this particular district is one of the most densely populated…"
AMY GOODMAN: "And this is a base that is used, run by US military, to run its drone attacks?"
FERYAL ALI GAUHAR: Oh, absolutely…. –Activists Go on Trial in Nevada for Protesting Obama Admin Drone Program
