The Evolving War on Terrorism: Examining the Post 9/11 Military Doctrine

Global Research News Hour Episode 112: Conversations with Sibel Edmonds and Michel Chossudovsky

A transformation strategy that solely pursued capabilities for projecting force from the United States, for example, and sacrificed forward basing and presence, would be at odds with larger American policy goals and would trouble American allies...Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor.” Rebuilding America’s Defenses: Strategy, Forces and Resources For a New Century – A Report of The Project for the New American Century, September 2000 (emphasis added) [1]

September 11, 2001 provided a justification for waging a war without borders. Washington’s agenda consists in extending the frontiers of the American Empire to facilitate complete U.S. corporate control, while installing within America the institutions of the Homeland Security State…The September 11, 2001 attacks also played a crucial role in the formulation of U.S. military doctrine, namely in sustaining the legend that Al-Qaeda is an enemy of the Western world when in fact it is a construct of U.S. Intelligence, which is used not only as a pretext to wage war on humanitarian grounds but also as an instrument of non-conventional warfare.’  – Professor Michel Chossudovsky, The Globalization of War: America’s “Long War” against Humanity [2]

On the occasion of the 14th anniversary of the World Trade Center attacks, the Global Research News Hour examines some of the problems with the official story, as well as how 9/11 opened the door to more robust, and dangerous military advances in key regions of the world.

Has the power of the 9/11 lie run its course, or could exposing that lie somehow undermine the long War?

Has infiltration and other sophisticated mechanisms succeeded in derailing 9/11 Truth?

Does the US/NATO War machine even need 9/11 anymore with the arrival of ISIS/ISIL?

These are some of the questions we will be exploring with our guests.
