Summary
A discussion of how the events of September 11, 2001 have influenced the United States' politics, from advancing a pre-existing military agenda to curtailing civil liberties and social programs. Places the Bush administration's justifications for the war(s) in the context of the struggle by neo-conservatives to increase American power globally by means of force. Contends that the administration has deliberately manipulated intelligence, political imagery, and fear to garner support for American military intervention
