Jihad represents a fight that has provided Muslims with a solid base of military efficiency demonstrated historically in early Islam. During the Cold War, America saw an advantage to promote the Afghan insurgents and channel aid to rebels. It was later revealed that the United States started aiding tribal and Islamic revolts half a year before the USSR invaded Afghanistan. The Afghan invasion not only led to the collapse of the Soviet Union, but also led to the creation of young Middle Eastern men who sought actions of violence to satisfy their own personal jihad. America trained these men like their own, supplied them with advanced weapon intelligence, and finally the addition of money and drugs.
That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger," This quote explicitly signifies that George W. Bush along with the neoconservatives lied to make the American public react in a certain way they have planned for their own concealed motives. In my opinion ma... ... middle of paper ... ...a man determined to achieve absolute power over the cost of war tragedies. The film productively works through featuring interviews, displaying news footage and heartbreaking pictures of the after math of the war on Iraq. It specifically proves how the Bush administration provoked the media to convince the people of America to support "war on terror" by creating a non-existent fear.
President Bush during his presidency has described the enemies of America as “enemies of Freedom” but this freedom is only for their people. This idea has put the thought in Americans’ head that “The American way of Life” is the only right way and that anyone who goes against it is an enemy or a terrorist.

So either we support their words and actions or we are vilified as unpatriotic.” Bush had a dictator attitude when it came to his reasoning for war. He felt he did not have to justify or answer to anyone’s questions for his reasons. Bush let Americans believe some of the conspiracy theories in order to shift the blame away from his administration. Instead of finding the most qualified skilled individual to lead the investigation on the 9/11 attacks, Bush appointed an individual who has been under fire with the government before. Henry Kissinger, a man whose been investigated for his secretive activities and tried for war crimes, was now called to investigate the biggest crime against America.
As a country that stands for freedom, equality, justice, and the pursuit of happiness, the United States does not back down from a fight when attacked. In the cases of Pearl Harbor and 9/11, these foreign countries attacked the United Stated with no apparent reason other than to spur retaliation. Such uncalled for actions threaten the security of American citizens, provoking the U.S. Government to take action. The president at the time of each calamity had different priorities and objectives when it came to what needed to be done. President Franklin D. Roosevelt wanted to persuade the US to go to war after the attack on Pearl Harbor while President George W. Bush wanted to comfort the Americans after the 9/11 tragedy.
Roosevelt was vehemently against this corruption but at the same time was for the honest reporting of this corruption. Roosevelt was trying to end this corruption and in order to do that he needed the American people to pressure the government into action and to pressure the media to report investigative articles while also being honest. Roosevelt begins his speech by giving details of Bunyan’s ”Pilgrim’s Progress” which goes from line one to nine. The reason for starting the speech with details is that the Man with the Muck Rake is a character from “Pilgrims Progress” which is used by Roosevelt thought his speech as an analogy for how he feels about investigative journalism. These details are vital to allow for those who are not aware of the book’s character to get Roosevelt’s reference and analogy.
