BBC Documentary Censored For Exposing Phony 'War on Terror' Tactics

 

The name of this BBC documentary is "The Power of Nightmares: The Rise of the Politics of Fear" by Adam Curtis. 

The series was originally broadcast in the United Kingdom in 2004 but has since been broadcast on network television in other countries, but never the United States.

Adams Curtis explained this censorship as documented in an article by The Guardian as follows;

"Something extraordinary has happened to American TV since September 11," says Curtis. "A head of the leading networks who had better remain nameless said to me that there was no way they could show it. He said, 'Who are you to say this?' and then he added, 'We would get slaughtered if we put this out.'" Surely a relatively enlightened broadcaster like HBO would show it? "When I was in New York I took a DVD to the head of documentaries at HBO. I still haven't heard from him."

The documentary won a BAFTA Award in the category for "Best Factual Series" in 2005

Fortunately the documentary has only been censored from network television and can still be found online for free. To access the 3 episodes and more information please go here:http://www.wanttoknow.info/war/power_... 

*It should be mentioned that this documentary does conform to the official 9/11 narrative, which any even half decent research knows to be factually inaccurate. Nonetheless, it is still an excellent documentary worth the time invested to watch it.
