The Power of Nightmares

This documentary, comprised of 3 parts, compares the rise of the American Neo-Conservative movement and the radical Islamist movement, making comparisons on their origins and noting strong similarities between the two. More controversially, it argues that the threat of radical Islamism as a massive, sinister organised force of destruction, specifically in the form of al-Qaeda, is in fact a myth perpetrated by politicians in many countries—and particularly American Neo-Conservatives—in an attempt to unite and inspire their people following the failure of earlier, more utopian ideologies. May I point out; this documentary is not in the business of discussing conspiracy theories. Rather, it presents a more leftist critique of the neo-Conservative agenda and how they believe that agenda has informed policy.

Part 1: Baby It's Cold Outside

Part 2: The Phantom Victory

Part 3: The Shadows in the Cave
