NSC-68 and the National Security State

National Security Council Paper NSC-68 was classified until 1975. The top secret report, completed by the Department of State’s Policy Planning Staff on April 7, 1950, set the stage for the creation of the military industrial complex. On this edition of The Geopolitical Report, we look at how the national security state and the military industrial complex are responsible for the death of between 20 and 30 million people, a toll that may rival Nazi Germany. By fiscal year 2015, military spending accounted for 54 percent of all federal discretionary spending. The Cold War average was $450 billion and this year the House Armed Services committee said it plans to set the topline of the House's annual defense authorization bill to $640 billion, along with a $65 billion war budget. The CIA has acted as the vanguard for illegal wars, both overt and proxy, and the NSA is now a premier surveillance behemoth that pries into every aspect of our lives.

    Imagine what we could do if not for the above idea !

    Thank you Kurt. This fit in well with a couple books I’m reading. The first is Anthony Sutton’s Wall street and Hitler. The second is Douglas Valentine’s The Phoenix Program. I’m guessing you’re familiar with both. If not, check them out!

    Excellent well-presented research! Sadly nobody will hear of it through corporate media, thus remaining in the dark. Thank you for the work you do to inform those who are willing to seek the truth.
