Retired U.S. Army Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson was a former national security adviser to the Reagan administration and spent years as an assistant to Secretary of State Colin Powell during both Bush administrations. He’s been among the “bad guys” in our Military-Industrial Complex. He’s been a card-carrying member of the “bad guys”.
However, about a decade ago, he decided to “come clean”.
In the following interview, he describes the rampant corruption inside the de facto government and the corporate interests driving foreign policy.
As you listen, take notes. You might be surprised at what you learn.
For example, Col. Wilkerson predicts that US military will remain in Afghanistan for another 50 years. I doubt that our nation and/or military-industrial complex can coexist and both survive for another 50 years. I therefore doubt Co. Wilkerson’s prediction. Nevertheless, for the first time, I understand his argument that our government intends to remain in Afghanistan for the next 50 years.
