Last night, the Region 62 supper club screened Hijacking Catastrophe, a 2004 documentary which argues that the wars on Afghanistan and Iraq were planned before 9/11. Some of the people interviewed for the docu made a few socialist comments (e.g., that Bush's $400 billion in military spending might have been spent on health care and education), but most of the docu focused on the neocons' plans for American empire since the fall of Communism.
