Radio adaptation of the 2007 documentary film on how lies and propaganda from the government and the media persuade Americans to support an endless succession of unnecessary wars abroad. Features commentary by Norman Solomon and Sean Penn plus much archival TV footage from the 1960s through 2007.

The very same propaganda techniques used to get us and keep us mired in the Vietnam War are being used today to support the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan--and to build support for near-future war with Iran.

The lies & the techniques they use to get us into war. The techniques they use to keep the war going after it starts . . . and then after the public has turned against it.

The video documentary was produced by the Media Education Foundation (www.mef.org). It is available online at http://makewarshistory.org.uk .
