Se trata de casi media hora de declaraciones del ex asesor de seguridad nacional, ex asistente del Secretario de Estado, Coronel (RE; Ejército de los EEUU) Lawrence Wilkerson (foto). "El barco se hunde", dice Lawrence; "Necesitamos una revolución en este país". La entrevista la reproduce hoy el sitio Signs of the Times (SOTT) y la acompaña con este texto:
Título: Former Bush official Lawrence Wilkerson exposes the unfixable corruption inside the establishment and says "America's ship is sinking"
Texto: "This ship is sinking," retired U.S. Army Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson tells Abby Martin, adding that "today the purpose of US foreign policy is to support the complex that we have created in the national security state that is fueled, funded, and powered by interminable war."
The former national security advisor to the Reagan administration, who spent years as an assistant to Secretary of State Colin Powell during both Bush administrations reflects on the sad but honest reflection on what America has become as he exposes the unfixable corruption inside the establishment and the corporate interests driving foreign policy.
"It's never been about altruism, it's about sheer power."
Comment: With almost no exceptions, Wilkerson, a former political and military insider, takes a clear, objective, sane, moral and conscientious stance on every topic covered in this 24 minute interview. Is it that individuals of such character are so abysmally rare in the culture of establishment institutions and the halls of power? Or, is it merely the nature of such institutions and the people employed by them that they are so corrupted, so mired in greed, and so hungry for the trappings of power that taking such a view as Wilkerson's must be considered an anomaly? Perhaps both. But whatever the case is, mark Wilkerson's final words closely - as they are most probably a taste of things to come in the US.
