Classic redirection, misdirection, and misinformation. The critical point (where critical thinking is actually involved) is who owns those companies and corporations and oil companies and munitions companies and pharmaceutical companies, and most of all, the top banks? We now realize that the global economic meltdown was carefully planned and executed, with pretty much everything rigged (LIBOR rates, ISDA interest rate swaps' rates, and so forth). This guy is far too misleading, and avoiding the real facts. Why and how was it possible for the democratically-elected government of Honduras to be overthrown? Who was behind the multiple assassination attempts/coups of the Chavez administration in Venezuela? Let the author address real questions, not his fiction!
