Adam Curtis's lively documentary, condensed & adapted to radio by KD. An interesting and entertaining look at the histories & politics of Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, and the U.S. since the 1940s.

PART TWO looks at the failed Russian attempts to reform Afghanistan in the 1980s ... the failed American attempts to reform Afghanistan since 2001 ... the transfer of political power in the West from governments to defense industries and the banks ... (Continued in "Credits")
It's also about the naive "Good vs. Evil" worldview shared by Washington, London, the Taliban, and Osama Bin Laden ... the vicious struggle of the Afghan Mujahideen and the Russians ... and how the West aided the rise of Islamic extremism.

A key theme of the film is those two pillars of Western foreign policy: blowback and unintended consequences,

"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "table") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
