In 1953, the CIA secretly backed a coup in Iran that toppled the democratically-elected Prime Minister Mohammad Mossadegh. Operation Ajax was the first overthrow of a foreign government by the CIA and a template for future regime change missions. Initially viewed as a success, it led to disaster 25 years later when radical mullahs drove the corrupt Shah from power and established an anti-Western Islamic government.
Filmmaker Susanne Brandstätter shows how the Romanian revolution was strictly a managed operation, controlled from the outside. The strategies used ranged from anti-Ceaucescu propaganda to the organized training of civilians as armed revolutionaries. Ceaucescu had to go because he thwarted the unity of Europe and the definitive collapse of communism.
Directed and narrated by Oliver Stone. Exhaustively fact checked, this is part ten of a ten-part documentary series that focuses on under reported events that crucially shaped America’s unique and complex history and set the stage for the unfolding crises that confront many countries today.
Directed by Eugene Jarecki. Inspired by Dwight Eisenhower’s legendary farewell speech (in which he coined the phrase “military industrial complex”), Jarecki surveys the scorched landscape of a half-century’s secret and not-so-secret wars America has fought on foreign soil. Not only do these wars keep the military industrial complex’s wheels oiled, but they maintain the American empire. The myth that America fights for ‘freedom’ can be seen as the irony it is today as Americans lose more and more of their freedom to perpetuate the lies they are told and to hide the truth of what is really happening behind the scenes of America’s so-called ‘theater wars’.

This 90-minute documentary examines the issues and the theories surrounding the John F Kennedy assassination which were revealed in Oliver Stone’s controversial 1991 film JFK. Was it fair, was it right, what was the truth? Beyond JFK includes a strong defence of his claims by Stone himself.
Oliver Stone talks to the National Press Club about his controversial movie, “JFK.” The movie examines the events leading to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and alleged subsequent cover-up through the eyes of former New Orleans district attorney Jim Garrison (Kevin Costner). Oliver Stone argues that the most compelling reason for JFK’s assassination was because he didn’t want war in Vietnam and in October 1963, had planned to withdraw troops. Oliver Stone begins speaking 5:25 minutes into this 1998 clip.
This 2007 John Pilger Documentary is about how the Unites States manipulated Latin American governments over a period of fifty years. However the ‘war’ is ongoing. It is a war fought to maintain Unites States’ control over Latin America’s rich natural resources.

Against this backdrop, courageous leaders fight back on behalf of the people and nationalise their natural resources to protect them from corporate greed.
Directed by William Lewis (1 hr and 27 mins)

Interview with Peter Dale Scott, professor at U.C. Berkeley for decades, poet and author, by Cindy Piester of Pulse TV in Ventura, CA., discussing Peter Scott’s most recent book, American War Machine: Deep Politics, the CIA Global Drug Connection, and the Road to Afghanistan. During this interview a connection is made between the assassination of President Kennedy and 9/11, and the United States rushing headlong into devastating wars that could not be won. It shows the connection between war and the rise and fall in the production of opium. Scott maintains that the American economy is essentially a war economy and that the warnings President Eisenhower made when he left office about the power of the Military Industrial Complex were no idle musings.
