Shane Dowling : The Power of Nightmares

I always wondered why, if the UK/US were at war with terrorism, why they always made such fantastic declarations about how powerful terrorists were and that they had infiltrated all elements of society? Surely this would simply add more gas to the fire and prolong the effect of the initial attack in question.

Anyhoo I guess my question has been answered, just watched The Power of Nightmares.

Adam Curtis you rock.
