New Documentary--Portrait of a Great Taboo: the Power of the Israel Lobby in the United States

A Dutch television news program broadcast this month a new documentary, Portrait of a Great Taboo: the Power of the Israel Lobby in the United States (see video below). No need to worry if you don't understand Dutch because all of the interviews are conducted in English. Featured in the documentary are interviews with, among others, John Mearsheimer, Richard Perle, Tony Judt, John Hagee, and former US Representative Earl Hilliard. Some of the most interesting footage is of retired US Army Col. Lawrence Wilkerson. Wilkerson was Colin Powell's chief of staff when Powell made the Bush administration's case for invading Iraq to the United Nations on February 5, 2003. Wilkerson was heavily involved in that presentation, of which he later said, "My participation in that presentation at the UN constitutes the lowest point in my professional life. I participated in a hoax on the American people, the international community and the United Nations Security Council." Thanks to A. for the tip.
