Publisher's Summary

Kresge Auditorium at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology was filled to capacity. Outside, hundreds were turned away for lack of room, while inside, Noam Chomsky spoke to nearly 1,300 concerned citizens about the invasion and occupation of Iraq and the implications for U.S. foreign policy. Chomsky began with a review and analysis of the State of the Union Address and other necessary allusions. Referring to the U.S. government's role as a terrorist organization in Central America during the 80s, Chomsky wondered aloud when the U.S. will become a part of the world justice system instead of outside it. Chomsky pointed out how the U.S. government had opened a Pandora's Box with their loose interpretation of pre-emptive strike. Sponsored by United for Justice with Peace and the M.I.T. Greens, and organized by Arlington United for Justice with Peace. Recorded by Roger Leisner on January 23, 2004, at M.I.T. in Cambridge, MA.

Clear, logical, talk given by Noam Chomsky. He is highly critical of US Policy but as he points out, certain facts are kept from the the American population by the coorporate media. Really gets you thinking... highly recommended.
