Lying for Empire: book
Lying for Empire: How to Commit War Crimes With a Straight Face
by David Model
Truman, Eisenhower, Johnson, Nixon, Reagan, G. H. Bush, Clinton, George W. Bush. No president has been publicly tried for committing a war crime. Yet these presidents have committed them while invoking threats of Communism, terrorism and the loss of American lives.
To win popular support for these foreign adventures, these presidents have lied to the American people, resulting in the loss of millions of innocent lives as in Vietnam or Iraq.
These actions clearly violated international law and constituted war crimes.
