Colonel Wilkerson: Oligarchy Controls U.S. War-Making
Who Is REALLY Responsible for America’s Wars?
Americans are starting to understand that the U.S. is an oligarchy, rather than a democracy or a republic. (Even the chair of the Federal Reserve can’t really disagree.)
That’s true of war-making and foreign policy, as well.
Consummate insider Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson – former chief of staff to Colin Powell, the guy who wrote Powell’s famous speech on Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, and now distinguished adjunct professor of Government and Public Policy at William & Mary – notes:
Who’s behind the White House, and who’s therefore behind U.S. foreign policy, more or less?
I think the answer today is the oligarchs. Which would be the same answer, – incidentally, ironically, if you will – for Putin in Russia.
