New Documentary

I just got this from the Ann Arbor Area Committee for Peace:
AAACP brings you...
"Hijacking Catastrophe"
to air on Community Television Network, Cable Channel 17, seven times in October!

"Hijacking Catastrophe: 9/11, Fear & the Selling of American Empire" examines how a radical fringe of the Republican Party used the trauma of the 9/11 terror attacks to advance a pre-existing agenda to radically transform American foreign policy while rolling back civil liberties and social programs at home. The documentary places the Bush Administration's false justifications for war in Iraq within the larger context of a two-decade struggle by neoconservatives to dramatically increase military spending in the wake of the Cold War, and to expand American power globally by means of military force.


The documentary premieres on Thursday, 10/7/04 at 11:00pm.

Additional replay times, all on Channel 17, include:
  • Sunday, 10/10 at 10:00pm
  • Tuesday, 10/12 at 10:30pm
  • Thursday, 10/14 at 9:00pm
  • Sunday, 10/17 at 10:00pm
  • Thursday, 10/21 at 11:00pm
  • Wednesday, 10/27 at 11:00pm
So, if you're local and have Comcast cable, you can watch it this week! If not, the DVD is available from the web site, and it will be showing in theaters as well.
