Post The Power of Nightmares
Every American should see this BBC documentary (although few probably will because of the timidity of the American press):

It's called "The Power of Nightmares" and traces the development of the neocons and "al qaeda" as parallel movements. It's a timely reminder that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. ... nightmares

Would like to hear your thoughts....

I watched that when it ran here. In tracing the rise of and goals of AQ I think it's absolutely brilliant and I would recomend it to anyone. In terms of helping to form a view as to how AQ should be dealt with, I also think it's superb.

In terms of the motivation of the western powers involved for a lot of their actions, it perhaps goes a little far at times. In that sense, it's a shame as the defensiveness that will result from the film will mean a lot of the excellent parts are missed/ignored/brushed over.
