The Terror-Industrial Complex

Despite Olberman’s pandering to the Obama Administration he still every now and then covers some good things. In this execpt he discusses warnings from Colin Powell over what he believed was the creation of a “terror-industrial complex.”

Drawing from Eisenhowers famous “military-industrial complex” he shows how the parallels between our countries new terror industry is mirroring, or, in my opinion, is taking over what our military-industrial complex has already established. Powell’s endorsement of the current wars is strange considering his views on the current situtation with government expenditures. Perhaps this is why he is starting to become skeptical of the Afghanistan surge.
