9/11 and the Belligerent Empire

Released on the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, this edition of The Empire Files is a scathing anti-war piece centered on what the filmmakers describe as a political disinformation campaign that lead to the US invasion of Afghanistan following the attacks of September 11, 2001.
Claiming that the United States government preyed on a nation in fear in order to launch a confused, misguided war, the filmmakers give viewers a history lesson in relation to religious extremism in Afghanistan and the surrounding areas. They ultimately suggest that the CIA is in some way to blame for the emergence of the Taliban and Al-Quaeda.
