Ron Paul and Stephen Kinzer: The History of Interventionism
Monday January 6, 2014
Today on the Ron Paul Channel, Dr. Paul interviews Stephen Kinzer, author of the fascinating new book on the Dulles brothers and their interventionist rampage through the 1950s.
As Kinzer tells Dr. Paul in the interview, the Dulles brothers -- John Foster as Secretary of State and Allen as CIA Director -- never paused for a moment to consider that the operations they were launching would have "huge terrible implications for American security, decades and even generations later."
From Iran to Iraq to Egypt to Syria to China to Africa to every hot spot we see in the news today, the Dulles brothers, with the blessing of President Eisenhower, inserted their covert and overt fingers. The brothers literally overflowed with their deep faith in American exceptionalism and the need to remake the world in their own image.
