An Insider's Eyewitness View of America's Descent Into Military Totalitarianism has an interesting interview with Colonel (Ret) Lawrence B. Wilkerson, Former Chief of Staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell. If you are a rabid conservative and always supported the Bush administration or always support anything with a Republican label, then this will be challenging. I don't swallow every Mr. Wilkerson statement nor do I agree with every interpretation but a healthy skepticism of government and popular views both left and right may be in order. Our founding fathers thought so. I'm sure leftists love this guy and love to quote him when his statements appear to support their positions. The whole interview was thought provoking for me. Should we support torture, are we defending against terrorism correctly, should we have invaded Iraq, and more?

Here is the interview link.
