The Rise Of America's Secret Government

With creation of the Central Intelligence Agency came a secret government that was unaccountable to the American people. It assassinated foreign leaders, journalists, and others who it determined were enemies. It overthrew governments it felt were not toeing the US line to the required degree.

What role did this secret government have in major events like the assassination of President Kennedy?

Blair's Iraq 'Apology': Sincere Or Spin?

Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair over the weekend offered an apology of sorts over the disaster produced by the 2003 US/UK invasion of Iraq. He's "sorry" that the intelligence was wrong, he said, but he's not at all sorry that Saddam Hussein was overthrown. This "apology" comes on the heels of the White House leaked document showing that while Blair was claiming to the British public that he was dedicated to diplomacy with Iraq, he was making deals with President George W. Bush to push the war option. Today's Liberty Report takes a look at  Tony "Phony" Blair...
