This 5-part documentary is a great expose on the national surveillance state that has arisen over the last 50-100 years. Manipulating elections, overthrowing foreign governments, and secret assassinations are just a few of the heinous acts committed in the name of national security. Now that Edward Snowden has blown the lid off of the NSA's Prism snooping program, this film series is even more important and relevant.
Part 4: Necrophilous An examination of torture, war crimes, and abuse of authority during protests and war. Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay Cuba shed light on the US security state's attitudes towards those who resist (or are accused of resisting) the American Empire's attempt at global hegemony. Islamophobia -- largely a construct of media propaganda -- is the driving force behind American's lust for war in the middle east and Americans' tolerance for crimes against humanity and "collateral damage".
