The Secret Government - The Uncomfortable Truth In 1987



This program aired on PBS in 1987 and could never be shown today. To be candid it doesn't even scratch the surface of how the U.S has been inventing enemies, and plundering countries since the start. 

Bill Moyers is a respected TV journalist who also worked for President Lyndon B. Johnson (a key Kennedy assassination player) and has a very professional and measured approach from the days when celebrity TV was considered unrelated to a country's well being.

He interviews many different people involved with the CIA and other government agencies. His documentary gives quite an overview of what has actually happened in the last 50 years regarding the CIA and the cold war (including Iran, GuatemalaCubaVietnam, Panama, Laos and Chile). He features such people as former CIA agents Ralph McGehee and Phil Retinger, Rear Admiral Gene La Rocque, Theodore Bissell (active in the CIA at the time), Sen. Frank Church and many others. 

Moyers is very credible. 

The full video "The Secret Government" is 90 minutes - this segment was edited by Frank Dorrel to 20 minutes in a desperate hope that time starved U.S. citizens will wake up to a far more sophisticated deception than the USSR or Peoples Republic of China ever inflicted on their people.

Watch an unfamiliar world unfold before your eyes. It's a land many other citizens around the world call the truth and the truth doesn't go away. It doesn't require flashy graphics, demagogue presenters and it doesn't need to shout.
