Read from August 04 to 11, 2012

provocative, prescient, a good read. a little too leftist on some issues: for instance, abolish the CIA? draw down our embassy initiatives in the middle east? Johnson seems to think that US foreign policy is all governed by what he calls the "military-industrial complex," a conspiratorial nexus linking the republican party and defense industries. most of his research is sound and very insightful, but some of his conclusions are astonishingly naive and radical. still, his general line of thought is highly worth paying attention to.
